Sharing your life and home with a cat or two come with certain challenges that cat parents should know how to deal with appropriately.
Here are some tips for dealing with specific kitty problems:
A picky pet
Some cats can be so picky with their food choices. But cats can also experience sudden changes in the eating patterns and appetite; it’s something that should be brought to the attention of your veterinarian. An underlying health problem can be causing your pet’s sudden change in behavior toward food in general. But if your kitty has been issued a clean bill of health by the vet, try enticing your pet to eat by warming up canned food for a few seconds in the microwave. Heating enhances the aroma of food and may entice your cat to eat. But make sure that the food’s temperature is just right before offering it to your pet.
While some cats are picky with their food, there are those that prefer eating their meals from a flat dish instead of from food bowls. Also, there are cats, especially senior ones that eat better when the bowl is elevated a little bit. This is largely attributed to joint problems that make eating from a low bowl painful and uncomfortable.
As a responsible pet owner, you should cultivate the habit of bringing your pet to your Moore, OK vet clinic for regular wellness checks.
