Here is a non-exhaustive list of essential accessories for impeccable hygiene:
To tame cat hair, the use of a suitable brush is essential. Both practical and easy to use, the anti-hair brush gets rid of hairballs on your sofas, sheets, clothes, carpets… No need for batteries or adhesive tape! One accessory is enough.
To prevent your cat from ingesting hairballs, it is important to brush it regularly, especially during moulting. This grooming also allows him to relax, tone his muscles and detect any parasites.
Before welcoming a cat, plan a litter box where it can relieve itself. Open models are perfect for kittens while closed boxes are more suitable for adults.
- A shovel and a litter mat
These accessories are essential for tank maintenance. The shovel is used to pick up excrement and balls of urine. For its part, the litter mat prevents the cat from carrying gravel all over the house when it leaves its tray. Before buying, remember to check the dimensions and the ease of maintenance of the carpet.
For the comfort of your cat
In order to provide a comfortable environment for your cat, include resting accessories in your shopping list. Provide one or more soft beds. You have the choice between a cushion, a niche, a hammock, a bassinet, a basket… Once the accessory has been delivered to your home, remember to install it in a quiet place, away from drafts and with little light.
Is your cat fragile enough or too weak to regulate its body temperature? Opt for a heating pad. With this accessory, your pet does not have to exert much effort to warm up. If he is sick, he will recover faster.
Good to know: self-heating cushions are the easiest to use. No need for electricity or a few minutes in the microwave for them to give off a comforting heat!
For his meal
To feed your cat, you need 2 types of accessories, namely:
- A bowl of food
The ideal is to favor a cat bowl with a wide and shallow base. The container should not slip when eating. Also, it should be large enough so that your pet’s whiskers don’t come in contact with the edges, as this may be unpleasant for them.
Also choose a bowl that is easy to wash. Indeed, daily cleaning is necessary to prevent the proliferation of bacteria.
- A water fountain or water bowl
A cat needs to hydrate regularly. The water bowl can be glass, stainless steel or ceramic. The main thing is to separate it from the food container to keep the water clean.
If your cat is not used to drinking throughout the day, prefer the water fountain to the bowl. The constantly flowing water attracts the animal, encouraging it to hydrate more.
For the well-being of your cat
Cats are playful, regardless of breed or age. To occupy it in your absence, bet on the following accessories:
- One or more scratching posts
Scratching posts are your allies to prevent your cat from letting off steam on your furniture or textiles (curtains for example).
If your pet lives mostly indoors, it absolutely makes for a cat tree. This accessory must allow him to play the acrobat, to hide, to sharpen his claws and to relax in height. Everything he needs to have fun and observe his environment!
In order to stimulate your cat’s natural instinct, offer him various games such as feather canes, stuffed animals, a vibrating mouse or a tunnel.
