Toys, pets, cuddles… Caring for your cat’s emotional needs is the best way to show them that you love them, along with taking care of their physical well-being. Learning how to look after a cat or kitten properly is a sure-fire way to keep you both happy.
How do you look after a cat or kitten?
Our advice will help you to understand many ways of keeping your cat happy, from hygiene to entertainment. We can also help you choose which accessories to get for your cat, such as litter, brushes and toys.
Even if they sleep a lot (some up to 16 hours a day!), cats need to have some way to burn off their energy and keep themselves entertained. Keeping them occupied by playing with them is the best way to make a bond with them and keep them from getting bored, especially if they are an indoor cat. Read our guides for helping pick which toys will suit your cat or kitten’s lifestyle.
Keeping your cat clean
Even if they are very clean, some cats need help in staying neat and tidy, such as regular brushing for long-haired cats. Their claws, eyes and teeth should also be regularly inspected to check if they’re clean and healthy.
