Crate-Training Your Cat

Crate-Training Your Cat

First of all, forget any of the cat products. If it makes any type of whirling noise or has anything to do with their toe nails – you might just be wasting your money. No cat is going to set still while you are messy with her toe nails with some whirling thing that makes even the tiniest bit of noise. Cats are just not built that way. As for the dog products this household has not tested any since there is no dog living here.

Along with all of these, Royal Canin offers specific diet created for cats of different breeds. These products take into consideration the individual needs of a particular cat breed and cater to them.

You might have said no thanks to some of these products since after adding shipping and delivery they seem less of a bargain and more of a hassle. Just recently, these products have begun being sold in different discount stores as well as at some drugstores and also on the internet. So no longer are these “buy me but I break immediately” products such a hassle to get – in fact some of them have turn rather mainstream. And (surprise, surprise) some of them are really decent products where you do get a ROI or return on your investment.

There are a couple things which a cat looks for in appealing furniture. Stability is a major factor. If a furnishing does not seem strong or sturdy enough to handle rough clawing it will be unappealing.

Also available is nutritious food for diabetic cats. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet for Diabetic cats regulates the glucose supply and provides proper nutrition for it.

If it is at all possible, you should start crate training you cat when he is still a kitten. If he learns early-on that the crate is not something to be hated or feared, trips to the vet will be that much easier in his later years. Older cats can still be trained with the following method, but will take more time and patience from the owner!

Cuts Through Plastic Packaging

The next step is to simply make the crate or cage as comfortable as possible for the cat and make it accessible at all times. You want to make the crate a “safe zone” for your cat. Keep it close to his litter box and food – you can even place either or both within the crate if there is room. Whenever you put him in the crate or see him in it, give him a treat. You can also place treats in the crate when it is unoccupied for your cat to find later – you want the cat to see the crate as a good place and associate it with good things.

It is certain that everyone at one time or another have been watching TV late at night and have seen those late night infomercials. Many of these products, you can just tell by looking that the first time you use them they are going to break. But after some research, some of these “as see on TV” products might be worth taking a second look at.

Bed: These are not vital as most cats and kittens are happy to sleep anywhere. If you do want a bed for your cat, there are many designs to choose from, but don’t expect your cat to sleep in it all the time.

It will take time and patience (especially with older cats), but a crate can be made into a “safe haven” for the cat whenever he feels uncomfortable or threatened – or simply wants to be left alone. If your cat runs and hides when you have company over, you can make the crate into the place he goes willingly with just a little training.

When using commercial food whether wet or dry always use a quality brand, as a cheap cat food often contains too much cereal and not enough protein.
