I clean out all of my cat litter boxes to start with. I fill my cats water dish with fresh water. More cat food is put in their food dishes. I give my cats a pat on the head. I fluff up their bedding and clean up any mess that might have happened in the night.
I clean up any cat mess the moment I see it. I use carpet cleaner or wood floor cleaner. I also use Clorox depending on the surface that needs cleaning. The faster you clean up a mess the easier it is to clean up as it has not set in yet. I clean up their bedding in a washing machine that I have in my basement that is for cat use only. Beds that cannot be placed in the washing machine have to be spot cleaned. I try to avoid buying cat beds that cannot be placed in a washing machine.
I like to brush or comb out the hair on my cats so they do not get matted. A combed out cat is less likely to have hairballs that they scarf up. If your cat has claws keep them trimmed up as the claw could get stuck in something they could not get free of without damaging themselves.
I sweep up any spilled cat food and throw it outdoors as many wild animals and birds can enjoy eating it. I sweep around the litter boxes twice a day and clean them out twice a day. Dirty litter boxes or floors by the litter box is a perfect breeding ground for fleas.
Check your cats teeth often as bad teeth could kill your cat in the near future. If their is a sudden change in your cats behavior or pattern keep a very close eye on them as it could turn into a medical emergency quickly. I spray Lysol on the floor by the litter boxes to kill any germs that could harbor there.
I hope you and your cat have many happy and healthy years ahead. The time you spend on the chores for your cat will lengthen his life and give you joy as you are helping your feline family member.
