We all know how independent and not caring cats can sometimes be. If they don’t like something, they’ll walk away. But what do you do if that happens too often? If your little furry friend gets upset too much, that’s a sign that you’re doing something wrong. So read on to find out how not to annoy your cat.
Cats are pretentious creatures and they’re very exigent with the environment they live in, so the moment when something’s not right, they’ll let you know. That’s why you should know about some key things that you do or don’t do which can upset your feline friend.
How Not To Annoy Your Cat
There’s a general rule that if you want to obtain a desired outcome, you should know how to do a particular thing, but sometimes, more important than that is to know what not to do. Such is the case here. Knowing what not to do to annoy your little furry friend.
Don’t Leave Them Alone
Contrary to what many people might believe, cats are not solitary creatures. They might not signal it like your dog does, but they do look for love and affection. Cats are more independent and can be left by themselves for longer periods of time than dogs for example, but stretch that too far and your cat might develop anxiety, feelings of loneliness or even depression. So make sure you allocate some quality time for your little furry friend every day.
Clean That Litter Box
It’s well known that cats don’t like dirty litter boxes and will avoid them rather than use them. But can we blame them? We don’t like going into a dirty toilet either, do we? So think about that when you don’t feel like cleaning your furry friend’s tiny toilet every day. It’s not an optional task.
Don’t Feed Them Spoiled Food
Cats are sensitive and will not touch food that’s not good. Spoiled food is a big no-no for both us and our little furry friends. Besides the bad taste, there’s the possibility of bacteria growing in spoiled food, so make sure you check the expiration date on the food before feeding it to your cat. We’re sure you don’t eat spoiled food so why would your cat? She’s also part of the family so treat her like that.
Love Them With Measure
Cats love to be petted, but sometimes, even a good thing can be too much. Overly aggressive petting is one of these things. When petting your cat, pay attention to her signals, as she will let you know about the do’s and don’ts. Respect that and everyone will be happy.
