Today we have prepared a special article for the care of cats during the winter since the rigors of this time of year directly affect them as they are especially sensitive to changes in temperature.
We offer you some advice so that your cats spend the winter in a healthy way and do not get sick. Prevent your cat from catching a cold. Whether your cat is indoor-only or the occasional patio cat, keep an eye on changes in temperature. Inside the house, make sure that the heating is not too high and that there is no difference in temperature in the different rooms so that your kitten maintains its body temperature on its walks throughout the house.
If your cat is one of those who goes out into the patio, avoid letting him do so on the coldest days and if it is essential that he do so, try to wrap him up with a scarf or something similar. Keep in mind that the cats most likely to get sick during the winter are kittens under one year of age and cats over 7 years of age. In both cases it is important to strengthen your immune system and defenses through your annual vaccinations.
Although it is true that cats are specially developed to prevent the entry of bacteria, with their lymph nodes that function as filters for microorganisms, it is essential to keep their annual vaccinations up to date. Another way to strengthen your defenses is through an adequate and quality diet.
At Best for Pets we have a wide variety of cat food from the best manufacturers specially indicated for each stage of its life, physical condition and environment in which it lives. A balanced and quality food will keep your cat healthy, energetic and strong against external threats.
We can also reinforce your defenses by administering supplements and vitamins for cats. Products specially indicated for them that will strengthen their immune system. Be alert for the first signs of a cold in your cat so that you can provide the necessary care as soon as possible.
If you notice that your cat is sneezing, has runny nose, watery eyes and is clearly apathetic, go to the vet as soon as possible to receive specialized attention and prevent the disease from getting worse. In addition to kittens and old cats, special attention must be paid to cats that, for some reason, are already sick, as they will also be more prone to catching colds in winter.
Another of the things that we must provide our kitty in the winter season is a warm bed or shelter so that it can take shelter during the night.
At Best for Pets we have a wide selection of beds and shelters for cats where you can find the most suitable for your kitten according to its age, size and character. We hope that this article has been of interest to you and that it helps you to prevent the rigors of winter from having a negative impact on the health of your kitten.
