<p>(<a   href=NewsUSA) – Cats are low-maintenance, attractive pets. They’re warm, they’re soft, their purrs sound soothing, and nothing looks cuter curled up on a windowsill. No wonder Americans keep more pet cats than any other nation.

But taking care of a cat can be more involved than some people may think. Medical problems, for example, catch many cat owners off guard. And while cats do not need the level of attention that dogs require, they do need grooming and physical activity.

Here are some tips to keep your kitty in the best health possible:

– Keep your cat indoors. Going outdoors puts cats at risk — they can encounter dogs or wild animals, cars, fleas and ticks or other cats, who may carry contagious diseases. Worse still, domestic cats can decimate local songbird populations. For the health of the planet, as well as your cat, it’s best to keep cats indoors. Outfit your cat with a collar and an ID tag in case it slips outside.

– Get your cat spayed or neutered. Spaying and neutering can help protect your pet from certain cancers, while also helping the problem of cat overpopulation.

– Choose the best food possible. Many inexpensive cat foods contain plant-based fillers and low-quality meat. Cats were meant to eat an extremely high-protein diet, so look for organic brands of cat food that do not contain chemicals or fillers. Always supply fresh water.

– Keep kitty away from toxins. Don’t choose kitty litters that contain dubious chemicals. Instead, choose a biodegradable, flushable, septic-safe cat litter, like World’s Best Cat Litter (www.worldsbestcatlitter.com). The cat litter is made from whole-kernel corn and controls odors and clumps better than other litters. The litter doesn’t contain silica dust, making it an ideal choice for people and pets with allergies.

– Take your cat to the vet for regular check-ups. Catching potential problem areas before disease develops can extend your cat’s life.

– Provide entertainment and exercise. Buy safe, natural-fiber toys. A string or a pointed flashlight can give cats activity. You should also consider providing pots of grass and scratching posts.
