Top 7 tips for new cat owners

Top 7 tips for new cat owners. Keeping cats brings great joy. In our experience there are many homeowners who found themselves bringing a new pet home after the Lockdown. For new cat owners there are so many top tips one can give to help them keep their cats healthy and safe. We suggest that you:
1.Create a safe space–this is critical as you introduce your pet to their new home
2.Introduce the litter box-the sooner they get used to using the box the better for both you and them
3.Choose the right food–consult your vet on the right food for your breed of cat and their stage in life
4.Microchip your cat as soon as possible–to ensure you can track your cat if they get lost, microchip your pet
5. Choose fun accessories to stimulate your pet–cats will scratch furniture if you don’t provide an alternative
6.Spend time with your new cat to get to know them. It will help you care for them while they are with you
7.Ensure you get pet sitters who love cats–use a service like who find pet loving sitters
