Lifespan Of A Cat And Your Responsibility

One thing many people don’t consider when getting a cat is the lifespan of the pet and the fact that they need to be responsible for the health and well-being of the cat for between 15 and 20 years.

There are additional factors that need to be taken into consideration and one of the most important factors is the expense of owning a cat. Obviously you’re going to need to spend money on food and good nutrition but there can be additional expenses such as vaccinations and other veterinarian costs that need to be considered.

As with people, the personalities of cats are many and varied. Ideally you will find the cat whose personality is matched to your own. There are many excellent books available at libraries and bookstores that will give you a good description of the type of personality to be expected from the various different breeds of cats.

Some breeds of cats require a lot more attention than others and particularly those cats that tend to live inside more often than other breeds that are happy to run around outside and keep themselves occupied.

Cats with longer fur will tend to shed had a lot more fur about the house which will require more cleaning and they will also require more grooming which means you will have to spend more time looking after them.

Cats are a lot more independent than dogs and are more difficult to train, and this is something that you need to realize and accept.

If you like to travel a lot or you are away from the house a lot of the time, you will need to arrange some other person or service that can mind your cat and ensure that it gets fed regularly.

It is always worth considering where you’re living and if the environment is suitable for owning a cat.

And one thing that surprisingly many people don’t consider before getting a cat is whether any person in the family is allergic to cats as there are quite a large number of people who are allergic to cats.

How to Travel Safely with Your Pet in Hot Weather


If you’re planning to travel with your pet this summer, you’re probably familiar with the precautions regarding vehicle safety (never leave your pet in a closed car on a sunny day, or even with windows cracked). That may seem like a no-brainer, but think it through before your departure. What will you do, for instance, when you want to pull off and eat at a restaurant? Where will you leave your pet?

Here are some things to consider for safe travel with your pet in hot weather.

1. Medication

Depending on where you’re headed on your vacation, making sure your pet is up todate on vaccinations and parasite/pest prevention is important. If you’re going camping, you will need to be particularly aware of ticks. Unfamiliar parasites may pose a threat if you’re traveling out of the country.

A first aid kit is a good idea for man and beast, especially if you are going to be on the road a lot or in the wilderness. Antiseptic, tweezers and bandages are the minimum that should be in such a kit. So make sure you take the necessary precautions before heading out to a new place.

Is your pet prone to motion sickness? If so, your vet should be able to recommend a medication of some sort to help with that.

2. Preparation

Before heading out, clean and exercise your pet. Car rides can get very long in “pet years”! And you want your animal to be clean when you arrive. Sources recommend not feeding your pet for a few hours before the trip, or leaving a few hours after your pet has eaten.

3. What to Bring

Regardless of the kind of pet you have, you’ll need to bring along certain things. Here is a minimal checklist.

-Toys (a few favorites)
-Catnip to calm your cat in transit and after arrival
-Chew toys to keep your dog occupied
-Food and water bowls
-Leash, collar, ID tag
-A few old towels to cover car seats, hotel beds, etc.
-Plastic pick-up baggies to clean up after your pet
-Litter and litter box for cats
-Brush and flea/tick comb
-Crate or carrier

4. In the Vehicle

Buckle up your pet with a special pet harness, which acts as a seatbelt forpets. If your pet is in a crate or carrier, then this can be strapped in/strapped down as well. Crates and carriers are essential not only for the car
but for wherever you’re staying. It can be a safe haven for your pet and can act as a bed at your destination. In the event of an accident, pets tend to survive better if they ride in a carrier or crate, sources say.

Every few hours, let your pet out (on a leash) to walk. Always use a leash; animals can act different in new surroundings, and someone may also steal your un-leashed pet. If you have a cat, teach him or her to use a harness and leash before you head out on your trip.
