FOOD

A cat's diet is almost absolutely a factor in one's health. Cats have a better chance at optimal health if they are fed canned food or a balanced homemade diet instead of dry food. Putting a little thought into what you feed your cat or cats can pay big dividends over their lifetime and very possibly help them avoid serious, painful, and costly illnesses. An increasing number of nutrition-savvy veterinarians, including board-certified veterinary internists, are now strongly recommending the feeding of canned food instead of dry food.

The three key negative issues associated with dry food are 1. the water content is too low, 2. the carbohydrate load is too high, and 3. the type/types of protein (too high in plant-based versus animal-based proteins). In addition, dry food is very heavily processed which includes being subjected to high temperatures for a long time resulting in alteration and destruction of nutrients. Dry food is also often contaminated with bacteria, fungal mycotoxins, storage mites/cockroaches and their feces, etc. Also keep in mind that dry foods are not refrigerated and they sit in warm warehouses, on pet store shelves, and in your cupboards for weeks or months before your pets consume them. Fats can easily become rancid, and bacteria will proliferate, in this type of environment. There is no doubt that dry food is responsible for far more intestinal problems, and other diseases, than most veterinarians and cat owners realize.

Blue protects tend to be good fit for both cats and dogs because they are rich in water and nutrients

GROOMING

Whether its a fancy cat or a regular old short hair, cats require hair brushing, not only to remove tangles, burs and dander, but to remove extra hair cats leave in the form of hairballs. To be effective, brushing should be a daily routine for cat and owner. There are plenty of different tools on the market such as brushes, combs, gloves, and etc.

Nail clipping is also important for cats, especially indoor cats. It is best to get a cat used to it while it's young, but it really is never too late to start. If new to nail clipping, get advice from a vet on how to do it properly without injuring the cat. And there's also the option of getting a vet or groomer to cut the nails

A little teeth brushing on a cat can go a long way. It removes plaque and tartar buildup, and it is a great way to monitor the cat's dental health. There are quite a variety of toothbrushes made specifically for cats, along with flavored cat toothpaste. Just make sure to never use human toothpaste for the cat or cats
