Cats are neat freaks! They love being clean and living in a clean environment, and their personal hygiene is generally on-point. However they still need some help from you, so follow this advice to keep your cat be purr-fectly clean, hygienic, comfortable and healthy.
Give your cat regular grooming sessions: use a brush or comb to remove loose fur and prevent matting
Give them regular baths (but only if they’re comfortable with it)
Trim their nails regularly
Provide them with fresh water and high-quality food every day
Keep their litter box clean and fresh. Katz-Loo Natural Clumping Cat Litter is the obvious answer here as it clumps so well, soaks up all moisture and traps nasty odours, and is suitable for use in a traditional litter tray or an automated litter box
Don’t use human shampoo on your cat: they have a different pH balance to humans, and using human shampoo can cause irritation and dryness
Don’t forget their teeth: brush your cat’s teeth regularly or give them dental chews to help keep their teeth and gums healthy. It might take a bit of training, but once your cat is used to the process things will get easier
Don’t let your cat outside if they haven't been vaccinated
Don’t bathe them too often: it can dry out their skin and disrupt their natural oils
Don’t ignore any signs of illness or discomfort in your cat: get to a vet if you notice any unusual symptoms
Remember: every cat is unique, so consult your vet for tailored advice about your beloved moggy.
