Cat care: hygiene items for cats
Cat care made easy – with Maxi Zoo
Cats are among the most popular pets. No wonder, since cats generally pay attention to cleanliness. However, appropriate care is important to ensure that your house cat feels completely comfortable. In addition to health and high-quality nutrition for your cat, you should also pay attention to other factors in cat care, such as fur and claws, as well as the hygiene conditions around the cat toilet.
An important place of retreat: the cat toilet
Cats instinctively tend to bury their excrement so that it cannot be smelled by anyone. You ensure that your cat can pursue this instinct through a cat toilet filled with bentonite and layered silicate. You should only use cat litter made of natural materials such as wood if young cats live in your household – in the event that a young kitten tests the taste of the litter.
At Maxi Zoo you will find various types of cat litter: with or without fragrance, clumping or non-clumping. At the beginning, animals and owners usually still have to find out which litter matches the cat’s preferences.
Tips for well-groomed cat fur
The fur protects the cat from external environmental influences and thus has an important function. And well-groomed fur not only increases the feel-good factor, but also benefits cat hygiene and health. This is because it keeps parasites away and also allows the owner to detect any skin diseases more quickly.
Cats generally take care of cleaning their fur themselves. They often spend hours keeping their fur clean with their tongue and paws. In cats with longer fur, however, it is necessary for you to participate in fur care, traditionally with a brush and comb. By the way, the more carefully you brush your cat, the less cat fur it spreads in your home.
You can also contribute to your cat’s fur health by carefully selecting its food. For example, special pates with unsaturated fatty acids support the fur shedding process. An adequately dosed supply of vitamins, copper, zinc and proteins is also important for the health of the skin and thus also for the fur. Maxi Zoo has the right products for proper cat care in its shop.
Cats also need a pedicure
With the help of their claws, cats can reach toys, defend themselves against rivals or climb on furniture or the scratching tree. Regular claw care may be necessary, however, for cats that are mainly climbing on soft materials, in older and less active animals or in cats whose claws grow particularly quickly, among other things. The claws should be trimmed at the latest if the cat develops problems during movement due to excessively long claws and the risk of injury is increased as a result.
Claw scissors are usually sufficient to cut your cat’s claws. Alternatively, claw clippers are also available. You should not use nail clippers for human fingernails, as their blade is not suitable for cat claws.
Conclusion: comprehensive care is required to maintain your cat’s well-being for as long as possible. In the Maxi Zoo online shop you will find a wide range of products suitable for cat care.
