Cats are one of the most popular household pets for many different reasons. They can help keep your home free of rodents and they can also be very amusing to watch. Cats are sometimes not given their fair share of credit for keeping homes safer, and keeping undesirable critters off your property.

Cats often view small spaces as a fun challenge. If your cat wears a collar they might get hurt, and stuck. Therefore, use a breakaway collar that will come undone whenever it's being pulled very tightly. Your cat can preserve a few of his nine lives with this.

To safely help an old cat feel comfortable, place a heated tile under its bed. Allow a terra cotta tile to heat in an oven for 15 minutes at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrap the tile in a towel and then put it under the bed. Change it every couple of hours if desired.

Cats can use their claws to destroy furniture and other parts of the house. If your beloved feline friend is shredding and damaging parts of your home, try investing in a cat tower or a scratching post. Give them some encouragement and let them know it is okay to scratch that. They may not take to it overnight, but they should eventually.

You may want to have a microchip put into your car. Even though a cat may live inside, you never know if it will run out the door to escape. A tagged collar might help get kitty home, but it can just as easily come off if snagged on a branch. A microchip about as big as a grain of rice and holds all the contact information your cat needs. Most shelters have a scanner that can pick up the facts located inside the chip.

Cats sometimes will spend hours grooming themselves to perfection. Your cat's long hair can cause hair balls. There are special foods you can buy to try to help with this particular problem. Some foods are enriched in fibers and vitamins to facilitate the digestion of the hairballs.

Cat medications can be bought affordable online. Sometimes you might not have time to wait for an online order to arrive however, such as if your cat needs an immediate antibiotic or emergency treatment. However, if you buy meds for your cat on a regular basis, you can save huge amounts by getting medication via the Internet.

Put a cloth down in your cat's eating area. Sometimes cats prefer to remove food from their bowls and eat it from the floor. Sometimes this will make the area around the bowl messy, and you'll have to clean it. There are two ways to do this. You can either put a placemat under the food bowl or use some stray fabric that you have lying around. Either way, you can easily get rid of debris by dumping them in the garbage.

If you want to let your cat outside, think again. Letting your cat outside greatly increases his risk level. Your cat may get fleas or something even worse than that. They can get in a fight or be hit by a car. If your cat really wants to go outside, let it out into a small area in your yard.

You shouldn't leave a young cat with children unattended. Never leave a pet alone with a child who is any younger than five. The maturity level isn't there when it comes to your child. Wait until your child gets older, and pay close attention to whether or not they're mature enough to hold or handle a tiny pet.

While a big dog might look like a better hunter than a small cat, it won't track pests the way a cat will. Cats often are better hunters than dogs. With such wonderful qualities, it's no wonder cats are very popular.
