22 Nov 5 myths about cats that should not be trusted
The cultivation of the cat involves a lot of work: proper socialization, the selection of quality food, care and attention, and it is understandable why owners are more likely to choose something older than kittens. Babies of the cat are irresistible and sweet, but they need to spend more time in order to grow into healthy and obedient pets. Make yourself comfortable, educate and enjoy watching your kitten progress.
In the next 5 myths one should not believe:
Myth # 1. – Kittens are having fun on their own
The truth is that the naughty kitty will always find something to play, but that does not mean that you do not need to get involved. Time spent playing with a cat creates strong social relationships between you and your pet. In addition, it is up to you to decide which items are permitted to play, and what is prohibited in order to preserve furniture, curtains or tassels on the carpet.
Myth # 2 – A kitten must have over 6 months to lead you to sterilization / castration
This information was accurate until recently, but recent research has shown that kittens can be safely sterilized / castrated for 8 weeks (2 months) without any harmful consequences.
Myth # 3. – Kittens can die if they stick too hard on their hands
On the contrary, after 6 weeks of age, cats need constant interaction with people, which includes hand holding, scaling and wearing. The cat must feel safe in the hands of the owner and this is just another aspect of socialization. A kitten that is not accustomed to human contact will be scared and ready to defend scratching or even biting.
Myth no. 4 – Kittens can be immediately adjusted to vegetarian diet
Not at all. Cats are by nature carnivorous. Their diet must contain a high level of protein (much more than dogs), which includes meat such as chicken, beef, fish … Absence of meat can lead to various health problems, and urinary tract infections are unavoidable. If the vegan lifestyle is your choice, respect your cat’s nature and do not destroy her health by denying her flesh.
Myth No. 5. – Unwanted behavior will disappear when the kitten grows up
Big mistake. Learned bad patterns of behavior remain when the cat arrives in adulthood. Things that are scratching furniture, jumping over the kitchen counter, doing emergency outside the sandbox are bad habits that can get worse if the cat does not work or training. Use positive dress modes and teach your kitten the rules of behavior. Our recommendation is the clicker method.
