How to Get Your House Ready for a New Cat

 

Getting a new cat, whether a newborn kitten or an elderley cat, is thrilling but you must first prepare your house.

You must prepare your home as well as yourself for the arrival of a new cat. To begin with, getting a new cat, especially a kitten, is a tremendous commitment. Every new cat owner must go through a ‘settling in' process to ensure their new feline companion is secure, comfortable, and most importantly, happy.

I’ll look at ways to prepare your house for the arrival of a new pet cat in the sections below.

Their Own Private Sanctuary

Even if you're overjoyed to shower your new cat with affection, cats need their own spot to withdraw to where they can feel safe and comfortable. Even gregarious kittens will need some room and time to explore their new surroundings, even if some cats are quite lap-friendly. More adventurous cats may require even more time to adjust to their new surroundings, so allow them to explore at their own leisure.

Protect Your Garden From Ingenious Escape Artists

Some animals, particularly cats, are born escape artists. A cat enclosure is an excellent method to protect your cats from wandering too far from home. Until you're confident enough to let your cat wander free throughout the world, either a fence topper or full-on outdoor cages will suffice. If you want to keep your cat indoors, an enclosure is a terrific way to give them a taste of the outdoors without exposing them to the hazards of the outside world.

Remember to provide outside cats access to your home at night. You could always build a cat door with a lock, which will allow you to block off the space after they've entered. It's vital to allow outdoor cats out on a regular basis so they may exercise and explore their surroundings, but you must keep them secure.

Things To Consider If You're A Foodie

Fill your house with items that will make your new cat happy, and food is usually at the top of the list. To choose the best pet food for whichever pet you're bringing home, do some research on different pet food companies. Cats usually choose a favourite meal and avoid the rest; wet food appears to be the most preferred.

You may need to adjust your cat's diet from time to time, especially as he or she gets older. A sudden change in diet might create gastrointestinal issues and make your cat sick, so proceed with caution. Introduce tiny portions of the new food with the old over the period of one to three weeks, gradually increasing the amount until your cat is eating all of the food.

Bringing a new pet into your family might be the finest decision you make this year. Animals offer us so much joy and happiness, and now that your home is set to welcome your new bundle of joy with open arms, all you have to do now is prepare yourself.
