How to keep your Indoor Cats Happy

Keep your cat indoors is the safest solution. It helps to:
* Protect from trauma
* Attacks from other animals
* Infectious Diseases
Even in the best place for your cat lives indoors can also contribute to boredom and stress that can result in medical and behavioral problems. There are steps cat owners can take an interesting indoor life for feline companions to offer.
Try to see your cat as a guest in your home. To realize just a few preparations to make the cat feel welcome and happy. First, try to keep your cat's physical, mental and emotional needs to understand. For more information, follow the link in the resource box to my persian site. On this page you can find useful articles on all aspects of care and living with cats. Bookmark site which I will add information constantly. On this site I will also investigate other members of the cat family such as tigers and lions that will help the cat's natural instincts to understand.
Cats are not animals or beasts of burden. They evolved as solitary hunters of small prey and spent much of their day in search of food. The second part of their time was spent on the setting, marking and defending a territory. Free-living cats lead very busy lives. Our domestic cats indoor living a full life, recognizing the need for food and patrol the area to find, but will not eliminate their daily need for stimulation and activity to find food and patrol the areas involved. So you can imagine how much "extra" time that our domestic cats have on their hands every day live indoors with us.
Most of us realize the indoor cat's basic needs for food, water and a litter box. What we may not realize is some mental and emotional needs. These include:
* A place to scratch
* A place to rest
* A place to perch above ground
* Some interaction with toys to chase prey mimics
The mental and emotional needs of a cat's call for an informed and understanding owner. For example, scraping a natural cat activity that helps in carrying out their cat muscles, shed the old outer layer of their claws and mark their territory by using both visual and odor-based song. Scratch is an instinctive behavior cat. This urge to scratch will vary from cat cat do when preferences of location and other materials. You'll have to experiment with different devices crabs to see which of your cat or cats better. Some prefer horizontal surfaces, others prefer vertically. Observe your cat to see what their preferences are and then take them with proper scratching device. I notice my Diamond Fairy and vertical scratching areas, and my husband, Taz, seems to do very little scratches. When your special cat, you will learn to communicate with them and what she tells you.
