Benefits of raising a cat

1. Relieve anxiety: Cute cats can help people relieve loneliness and soothe people's emotions. For people suffering from depression, raising a cat can greatly improve their mood.

2. Improve sleep quality: Cats' purring has healing effects, and the sound waves they emit can also improve human sleep quality! If you are prone to insomnia, why not get a cat?


3. Become smart: Research shows that cat owners are usually smarter, especially in terms of IQ and education. Maybe it’s because cat owners prefer to be quiet, and it’s easier to focus on doing certain things when a cat is with you. Moreover, in the process of raising a cat, you will constantly compete with the cat in a battle of wits and courage!

4. Reduce the risk of disease: A US study shows that keeping cats can reduce the chance of heart disease and stroke!

According to statistics from scientists, children with cats at home have stronger immune systems and are less prone to allergies than other children of the same age.

6. Increase attractiveness: A British research survey found that nearly 82% of women feel that men will look more attractive if they have pets, and more than 90% of women find men who have cats extremely attractive.

3. There are many things to do: I can no longer be as leisurely as before.

There may be endless things to do every day.

4. You can't sleep in: After raising a cat, you can’t sleep in even on weekends, because you have to feed and accompany the cat regularly!

5. Your status is threatened: After raising a cat, you may never be as pampered as before. Because cats can threaten your status at home, you may no longer be the number one priority in your parents’ hearts!


Things you need to pay attention to when raising a cat

1. Get vaccinated on time

It is very important to vaccinate cats on time. This is an effective way to prevent cats from contracting rhinovirus, feline calicivirus, feline distemper virus, etc., and can ensure the health of cats.

2. Regular deworming

If cats are not dewormed regularly, they can easily become infected with parasites, which can lead to skin diseases, anemia, etc., damaging the cat’s health. Therefore, cats must be dewormed regularly. It is generally recommended to deworm the cat once a month in vitro and once every three months in vivo!


3. Daily care

In addition to deworming and vaccination, the cat's daily care must also be done, such as cutting nails, combing, bathing, etc. Some cats may be resistant to these things, but pet owners must be patient. If the cat is not worthy, you can also lure it with some freeze-dried snacks to divert the cat’s attention!

4. Pay attention to a balanced diet

When raising cats on a daily basis, the most important thing is to ensure the cat’s nutrition. This is closely related to the cat’s health, so you must pay attention to the cat’s nutritionally balanced diet. Cats are carnivores and have high requirements for protein. It is recommended to choose some cat food with high meat content as their main food!

If you combine it with some complementary food, the cat will be healthier!
