Getting My Cats Winter Essentials

Heated Cat Beds

I buy my heated cat beds from Chewy.com. I like the K& H brand heated cat beds as they last a long time and are completely dependable. Some of the cat beds zip apart and you can take out the element and wash the rest of the bed on a gentle cycle in your washing machine and then let the bed line dry in a warm basement or area of your home. I like the window sill, round and dog house style heated cat beds. Make sure the cords are in good shape on all of your cats beds and that they are in good working order before use to prevent any fires.

Stock Up On Cat Food And Litter

I stock up on cat food and litter as I do not want to be moving the heavy containers around when there is a solid sheet of ice on the ground. I love the fact that chewy.com delivers your cat supplies right to your door. I order cat food, treats, kitty litter, toys and so much more from chewy.com.

Checkups At Your Vet

I make sure all of my cats have had their checkups before winter sets in. I make sure my cats shots are all up to date and their teeth are in good order. A happy cat is a healthy, loved and well cared for feline. By taking your cat to the vet regularly you may prevent a big health problem down the road. All of us want our feline friends to live their full nine lives.

Cat Toys And Exercise Wheels

Your cat will be more fit and trim with an exercise wheel in your home for cats. It will take your cats a little while to get used to using the exercise wheel. Cats running and pouncing on cat toys helps shed some of those unwanted pounds. I have some brain teaser cat toys to keep my cats minds more alert. My cats love cat treat balls. When my cats move the treat ball just right a nice cat treat rewards them for their efforts.

Canned Food And Cat Treats

As the temps. keep dropping my cats love to have more canned cat food added to their diet. My cats love canned food with squash or pumpkin in it along with chicken or fish. More food helps keep up their body temp. and their energy level. My cats always look forward to cat treats. My cats prefer chicken or tuna flavored cat treats.

Clean Up Your Cat Dishes And Litter Boxes and Bedding

I have fluffy towels for my cats next door to cuddle up in and I wash them before cold weather arrives. I take my litter boxes outdoors and clean them with soapy water and a scrub brush and I put rubber gloves on. All of my cat dishes get cleaned or replaced.

Keep Your Cat Free From Drafts

Make sure your door seals are in good shape and your windows are closed securely. Put your cat bed, litter box and dishes in a warm area for your cat. Never keep a cat outdoors that does not have shelter and a nice warm spot to curl up in and a heated water bowl and plenty of food. I hope you and your cats stay nice and cozy this winter.

Toys And More That My Cats Enjoyed This Christmas

My cats enjoyed their gift of small catnip filled mice that I purchased from Chewy.Com. Conrad my youngest house cat tossed them around in the air and then he carried his prize throughout the house. My cats next door rubbed against them and batted them around. Kohl took one of the mice to bed with him.

Garfunkel liked the new rabbit from Hallmark. When you pull at his tail he dances around the room. Garfunkel licked the rabbit and tossed him around for awhile. Conrad has mastered the art of pulling the tail just right so the little rabbit does its dance for him.

Singing birds and squeaking mice fascinate almost any cat. Their favorites are mice, baby chicks, cardinals and a plain looking bird. Conrad wonders why the bird never tops chirping regardless of his hunting proneness.

Cali liked the toy beaver from Chewy.Com. The beavers stomach opens up so you can stuff the stomach with catnip. Mr. Gray saw her playing with it and he joined in on the fun. I have given my cats toys like this in the past and they continue to please them.

My cats next door got a new heated K and H cat bed that can be purchased from a number of stores. The bed does not heat unless their is a cat in the bed. The heated cat bed is very energy efficient. All of my cats next door have a heated cat bed in various sizes and shapes.

My cats also like to play with plush baby toys that have a rattle in them. Kohl likes ones that look like frogs. My cats love bright colored baby toys. The ones that look like animals are their favorites. Small stuffed toys and balls are also popular with them.

Cat treats are a wonderful gift that can even help clean your cats teeth depending on the kind of treat you happen to purchase. I purchased one that is on a ring and the more they chew on the ring the cleaner their teeth become. My cats next door got a few pieces of shrimp that they enjoyed this Christmas. I hope your cats enjoyed their Christmas gifts. I am happy when my cats are happy with the gifts I have provided for them.  Looking forward to a new year with my cat family.

Cats And Holidays

Make the holidays perfect for you and your feline friends. Many dangers are lurking around the corner where cats could get harmed. Cats are very curious by nature and they can get into trouble very quickly indeed. Bright and shiny objects are like a magnet pulling them in that direction.

Watch your Turkey as it is removed from the oven. An unattended turkey may be impossible for some cats to resist. Your cats may eat some of your turkey making it impossible to serve to your guest. Your cat might have the whole turkey resting on the floor. Keep your food covered and train your cat when he is very young so he knows that kind of behavior will not work in your household.

Christmas trees and cats can be a huge problem. Some cats like to climb them knocking the whole tree over. A cat might knock the bulbs to the floor and try to eat them. A few cats have been known to drink the water under the tree. Never put any chemicals in the water under the tree to help keep the needles on the tree longer. If your cats drinks the water with chemicals in it your cat could die on Christmas day. Be alert to what your cat is doing, Do not let him get near tinsel which can damage their throat and more. Poinsettias, holly, mistletoe,Easter lilies  and more plants can be poisonous if your cat ingests them. Call your Veterinarian ASAP if you think your cat may be poisoned.

Do not give your cat all kinds of human snacks during the holidays. A cats stomach is not designed to handle a hug variety of different foods. I give my cats one little piece of turkey each and they seem to get along fine. Your cat will throw up if you feed him to much. Never give a cat chocolate as chocolate will kill a cat.

Good gifts to give your cats during the holidays are: cat treats, cat toys, heated cat beds, catnip mice, circle game toys,  a new liter box and make sure they get their yearly checkups and shots at your Veterinarian. Hope you and your cats have many safe and Happy Holidays together.

Where I Buy My Cats Accessories

I order my cats accessories online or I buy them at my local stores.  I do a lot of comparison shopping as I want the best quality items for a reasonable price. Compare the online prices to your local store prices. If you can shop local remember those dollars go back into your community. Online shopping is wonderful when they offer free shipping. In the cold winter months it is nice to have cat food and cat litter delivered right to your door.

I buy my cats toys from e bay, amazon, grocery stores and chewy.com. I buy my cat litter from Menards, Mills Fleet Farm and Chewy.Com. My cat food comes mainly from chewy.com and Menards. I prefer K and H heated cat beds as they tend to last a long time. My heated cat beds come from e bay and amazon.com. My cats love their Meowfia cat beds from Chewy.Com. I purchased my cat playpen from Amazon.Com.

I just purchased a wonderful plastic folding steps made by Frisco and sold by Chewy.com for my cat Kohl. Kohl has trouble jumping into my bed as he is getting older and his new steps make life a lot easier for him. Kohl also likes orthopedic cat beds that I have purchased from Aldi’s grocery store.

I have purchased flea treatment products from my veterinarian. You can purchase distemper shots for your cats at Mills Fleet farm. I take my cats to my my veterinarian for all of their shots. Do research on flea treatment products before you buy them to make sure they are effective and safe for your cat depending on size, age and their overall general health.

I purchased my metal heated water bowls from Menards as they tend to last a long time compared to plastic heated water bowls. My grooming tools were purchased at my local stores. I have purchased many litter boxes over the years. I like a litter box that sifts the litter clean as you do not waste as much cat litter that way.

I love the Litter Robot. It is more costly then some other brands but my cats and I absolutely love it. It smells nice and fresh and the dirty litter in dumped in a plastic bag in tray below the unit. The Litter Robot even has a night light in it for your cat. The Litter Robot is totally automatic all you have to do is put fresh clumping litter in and remove the bag of dirty litter and put a new bag in and your all set.

Your cat will be happy with his new accessories and his nine lives will be blessed by you caring for and loving him everyday unconditionally. God Bless you and your feline friends.

The Daily Chores Of A Cat Person

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.
