How to deal with your pet’s upset stomach
Lots of pets suffer from upset tummies from time to time. While the specific details sometimes don’t make pleasant reading, it’s important that you know what to expect.
Cats and changing Weather
Changing weather means changing needs for your cat, with the summer and winter months bringing particular problems for cats. If you keep your cat indoors (or keep her in just for the winter) she won't be affected by the drop in temperature or the hazards of cold weather.
Grooming your cat
Cats are extremely clean animals, but even the most fastidious cat will benefit from a little help with grooming. Especially if they have long hair. Grooming your cat is also an excellent way to bond. It's a good idea to get your cat used to being brushed and combed from an early age.
Dealing with hairballs
Almost all cat owners have seen a hairball or heard the disturbing sound of their cat trying to cough one up. Hairballs are easy to recognise as they take the distinctive form of cylindrical (tube shaped) masses of hair.
Moving house with your cat
If there's one thing more stressful than moving house, then it's moving house with your cat. With some careful planning though, everything should go smoothly. Cats develop strong bonds with their environment so house moves are potentially stressful.
