General Cat Care

kucing1

1. Feeding
Your veterinarian will be able to assess your new cat or kitten and determine the best diet. Factors such as age, activity level and health make a difference in what and how much a cat should eat.
2. Grooming
Most cats stay relatively clean and rarely need a bath, but you should brush or comb your cat regularly.
3. Handling
To pick up your cat, place one hand behind the front legs and another under the hindquarters. Lift gently. Never pick up a cat by the scruff of the neck or by the front legs.
4. Housing
Please keep your cat indoors. Outdoor cats do not live as long as indoor cats. Outdoor cats are more likely to become infested with fleas or ticks, as well as contract infectious diseases.
5. Identification
If allowed outdoors, your cat must wear a safety collar and an ID tag.
6. Litter Box
All indoor cats need a litter box, which should be placed in a quiet, accessible location.
7. Scratching
Cats need to scratch! When a cat scratches, the old outer nail sheath is pulled off and the sharp, smooth claws underneath are exposed
8. Medicines and Poisons
Never give your cat medication that has not been prescribed by a veterinarian.
9. Spaying and Neutering
By spaying or neutering your pet, you’ll help control the pet homelessness crisis. There are also medical and behavioral benefits to spaying (female pets) and neutering (male pets) your animals.
10. Vaccinations
Vaccines help prevent many illnesses that affect pets. Vaccinating your pet has long been considered one of the easiest ways to help him live a long, healthy life. (Bahasa Indonesia di bagian konentar)

Perawatan umum pada kucing

1. Makanan
Dokter hewan Anda akan dapat menentukan diet terbaik untuk kucing anda. Faktor-faktor seperti usia, tingkat aktivitas dan kesehatan menjadi pertimbangan dalam menentukan apa dan berapa banyak kucing harus makan.
2. Grooming
Kebanyakan kucing relatif bersih dan jarang mandi, tetapi Anda harus menyisir kucing secara teratur.
3. Penanganan
Untuk mengangkat kucing, letakkan satu tangan di belakang kaki depan dan satu lagi di bawah kaki belakangnya. Angkat dengan lembut. Jangan pernah mengangkat kucing di tengkuk leher atau di kaki depan.
4. Tempat tinggal
Pelihara kucing Anda di dalam ruangan. Kucing di luar ruangan tidak dapat hidup selama kucing dalam ruangan. Kucing luar lebih cenderung akan membawa kutu, serta penyakit menular lainnya.
5. Identifikasi
Jika diizinkan di luar ruangan, kucing Anda harus mengenakan kerah pengaman dan tanda pengenal.
6. Kotak pasir
Semua kucing dalam ruangan membutuhkan kotak pasir, yang harus ditempatkan di lokasi yang tenang dan mudah diakses kucing.
7. Tempat cakar
Kucing harus menggaruk! Ketika kucing mencakar, bagian kulit luar kuku akan diganti dengan kulit yang baru
8. Obat-obatan
Jangan berikan obat kucing Anda yang belum diresepkan oleh dokter hewan/tanpa resep dokter
9. Sterilisasi
Dengan mensteril hewan kucing Anda, Anda akan membantu mengendalikan krisis penyebaran kucing. Ada juga manfaat medis dan perilaku jika mensteril kucing anda.
10. Vaksinasi
Vaksin membantu mencegah berbagai penyakit. Memvaksinasi hewan peliharaan Anda dianggap sebagai salah satu cara termudah untuk membuatnya berumur panjang.
