Cats hear higher and lower tones better than you and me. Sounds from mice and other small animals are so well recognized. Cats can see better in the dark than humans. They also have a better sense of smell, but they don't see colors as well. Cats communicate with each other by meowing, purring, vibrating, hissing and growling. They also use body language that only cats use.
Your cat will really enjoy it if you brush or comb it often. It doesn't matter if he has a long or short coat, the more often the better! With combing and brushing you remove the loose hairs from your cat's coat that he would otherwise swallow himself.
Your cat should be able to drink clean, fresh drinking water every day. This is very important for your cat's health. A water fountain ensures that your cat will drink more often.
Does your cat live a lot indoors? Then a litter box is important. Keep your litter box clean by scooping every day. Cats really like a clean litter box. You should completely change the litter box at least every week. Use high-quality gravel for the filling. This prevents odors.

Feed your cat high-quality food. Quality food ensures the good health of your cat. Don't give your cat a lot of salt. Cats love potato chips and ham, but they contain a lot of salt, which is bad for your cat's kidneys. For example, give your cat unsalted cooked chicken fillet as a snack. Your cat will also love a tasty piece of unsalted cooked fish.
Cats love cat grass. You can buy it at a pet store. You can also grow cat grass yourself with wheatgrass seed. Do you have a cat that lives indoors a lot? Then give your cat cat grass. Cats wash themselves with their tongue and swallow a lot of hair because of this. These hairs can collect in his stomach and cause a blockage. When your cat eats cat grass, the hairs in the stomach become a ball that your cat spits out again. With cat grass you also prevent your cat from eating your house plants!
