Cats are known for interfering with people’s allergies and if you find yourself living with a cat, it can quickly become a poor experience. Luckily, there are few easy solutions for keeping your home clean and free of excessive dandruff. Review these paragraphs and implement the ideas if you find yourself suffering from too much cat fur in the air.
Create a warm bed for an outdoor or feral cat by lining a banana box with a thick layer of newspaper. Cut a piece of Mylar to fit the bottom of the box. Put another layer of newspaper on top. Add a warm blanket. Place the whole box inside a dog house or under a porch where it can’t get wet.
Play with your cat using proper cat toys. Cats love toys that help them feel like the predators that they think they are. Try sticking with toys that help them dance around or jump. This can also help them use extra energy by pouncing on toys instead of people’s feet.
Don’t use items on a cat that are meant for a dog. Cats are known to have severe negative reactions when exposed to products designed for dogs. Flea products especially. Dog flea prevention products will kill your cat. In fact, it is a good idea to separate your cat and dog for a few hours after your dog has taken flea medication.
Should you leave the house with your cat, make sure that she is wearing a collar with tags. This way, if anything happens and you two become separated, anyone can find her and know how to reach you. Your cat may not like the collar all the time, but when she’s out of the house it can save her.
Cats are great family pets, but small children might be too rough. Teach your kid how to properly handle a cat. Show them what activities are appropriate and how to pick them up. Keep in mind that a cat’s bones are much more fragile than a dog’s.
Do you have more than one cat? If so, then you should have more than one litter box as well. Having one for each of your cats will give them multiple spots to go. If the odor gets too much you can add a little baking soda to the litter to freshen it up.
If you want a cat to come your way, it may be a good idea for you to refrain from looking at them. Cats do not like it when people look them directly in the eye, so they tend to go the other way. This is why it seems as if cats always gravitate toward people who are not really fond of animals.
You can now breathe easy without suffering from serious allergies and breaking down into a snotty spectacle. Keeping the house clean means you can live indoors with a feline and never suffer any side effects. Most allergy sufferers are victims of dandruff or fur that drifts around the room, accumulating until cleaned.
