Did you know that cats can get colds too? If your kitty is under the weather he may not be eating as much due to not feeling well. Try to encourage your kitty by offering some treats in your hand. By hand feeding you might be able to get your kitties appetite back.
You like a clean bathroom don’t you? Well, so does your kitty. Your cats little box should be cleaned completely once or twice a week and scooped everyday to ensure cleanliness.
Cats love to sleep. In fact, cats spend more time sleeping than they do awake. Be sure that your kitty has plenty of soft places to snooze. Make sure that your kitty’s beds are not in an area subject to drafts such as next to a window. Also, be sure that you have some kitty beds in a quiet area in case your kitty wants to be left alone.
