Grooming Cats


 Grooming Your Cats

 It is very important to groom your cats. It helps lessen fur balls, it keeps your kittie’s fur from becoming un-clean, matted, and knotty, it makes them look nice, and it also keeps your cat from shedding fur so much. But how?

 When cats lick their selves, they pick up fur on their tongues, and then they swallow it. after licking their selves so much and swallowing so much fur, the mucas in their stomach and the fur forms a fur ball. And then they throw it up. But the more your brush your cats, the more you can prevent fur balls. Brushing removes fur from your cat so this makes less fur for your cat to lick up and swallow. That means that if you brush your cat very frequently, then fur comes off, then there won’t be enough extra fur that they can swallow it and have a fur ball. So, if you would like to find less fur balls around your house, then you should brush your cat about once a day, twice a day if its a long hair or if it sheds a lot. (You do not have to brush hairless cats!) *** (:

 Brushing your cats can prevent a lot of fur-shedding. Since brushing removes a lot of the dead fur that eventually falls off of your kitty, it lessens the amount of fur that your cat sheds because the brush takes it off instead of it coming off your cat and on to your furniture. So if you’d like to prevent a lot of shedding, then brush cat a lot, especially if its a long hair.

 Brushing can keep your cat’s fur from getting matted, un-clean, and knotty. When you brush your hair, you usually can get the knots and stuff out of it. Its the same with cats. When you brush their fur, you get knots out of it and you keep it from getting matted. You can also get little pieces of cat litter or dirt out of their fur when you brush them with a comb. You can also keep them looking nice when you do this, because when your cat has just been brushed and it has no longer matted, and has no dirt, cat litter, or knots in it’s fur anymore, it looks pretty flashy. So if you’d like to keep your cat clean, un-matted, and it’s fur un-knotted, then you should brush your cat A LOT.

 Hope that you liked my article and learned some good tips on why to brush your cats!

*You can find cat brushes at your local pet store. Kitty brushes work best on cats.

Keep brushing!

Sphinx Cats


Keeping Your Sphinx Cat Warm
A Sphinx must have food, fresh water, toys and attention just like every cat, but one of the most important thing about them is that they must stay warm. They do not have a fuzzy coat that grows longer and warmer as it gets cold. They are hairless! This means that when the weather becomes cold, a Sphinx does not have any fur to keep her warm. That means that they feel colder than any cat with fur would. So this is why its good to have a small sweater and a heated cat bed for your Sphinx Cat. But how do you tell when your Sphinx is cold? Well here’s how: when you feel cold than it usually means that your Sphinx Cat is cold. A lot of cats hate sweaters, but when it is very cold outside, you need to make sure that your Sphinx is staying very warm. If you just can’t manage to put your Sphinx in a sweater, (which I can understand,) than the heated cat bed will probably do best. If your Sphinx doesn’t like the heated cat bed, then you can put a few treats on it and some cat nip and maybe your kitty will like it better. On cold days, you also might not want to keep the house tempeture to cold. This can just make your cat even colder.

You can probably find heated cat beds and cat sweaters at your local pet store. Hope that this article helps you to keep your Sphinx kitty warm!

Keeping Your Sphinx Clean

It is also very important to keep your Sphinx Cat clean. I’ve heard that you should give them a bath about once a week. Just make sure that you use kitty shampoo if you want to suds your Sphinx up. Remember, you do not have to give furry kitties baths unless they really need it. Sphinx just need them because they are a special kind of cat that needs special care.

I hope that all of this information helps you care for your Sphinx Cat! Thanks for reading! I’ll post more soon!

Frisky is OK!


My cousin’s kitten, Frisky, is OK! (Read “Frisky”,previous post before “Good Reasons Not to Declaw”) She just recently got spayed and they thought that she had lost a stitch, but it just turns out that she was scratching their so much, that she just accidently cut herself a little and got a little infected. They have been giving her some medicine that will help it heel and she has been doing great.

Good Reasons Not to Declaw Your Cats


Hi! Many people believe that declawing is very wrong, but some people can’t get that straight. Here are some reasons NOT to declaw:

*Declawing can make your cat have pains in their paws when they bury litter, and it might cause them to start going on the floor!

*If someone declawed you, than your forefingers would all be gone! If you don’t want someone to “declaw” you, than why do it to your cats?

*When your your cat is trying to defend it’s self from you (for example, when you’re holding him/her, and he/she wants to get down) , she/he would probably just give you a small scratch, but without claws, he/she might give you a hard, deep, bite.

*Your cat cannot defend its self from other animals without claws.

*Cats have a harder time playing with cat toys without claws.

*And besides, who would want to get part of their cat’s paw cut off? It’s so mean!

Thanks for reading and hope that this helps!

I’ll write more soon!
