3 Natural Cat Care Tips

How To Care For Your Cat Naturally With These 3 Tips

You love your cat and want to do your best for him or her. Have you thought about natural a lifestyle your cat has? It's not just a question of 'being green' but by taking a more natural approach to your cat's care, it will be a more natural lifestyle. After all, cats are domesticated to live in our houses, but are creatures of nature!

Here are 3 top tips for you to try. I'd love to hear which ones you've tried or what you're going to try. Please contact me via social media - links from the menu bar above.

1. Nutrition for your cat


What do you feed your cat? There are dozens if not hundreds of different foods you can buy for your cat. There's lots of manufacturers and brands to choose from. Do you look carefully at the ingredients list? Anything that's "modified" is not natural. According to the World Health Organisation, "genetically modified (GM) foods are foods derived from organisms whose genetic material (DNA) has been modified in a way that does not occur naturally, e.g. through the introduction of a gene from a different organism."

You can buy fresh food for your cat or even cook food for your cat. But it's important to get the balance right. And to choose ingredients that are going to help the best health. So buying a reputable brand can be useful. Raw food has become more popular over recent years and again there are many brands.

2. Massage or other manual therapies for cats


Massage isn't only useful for people! Many animals can benefit from the therapeutic benefits. It's useful as massage has a direct effect on the skin, muscles and joints. It's helpful not only as part of a rehabilitation programme to treat injuries and relieve pain and tension, but can also be used preventatively.

There are other manual therapies such as Cat and Canine Muscle Release Therapy or Veterinary Physiotherapy that can help too.

3. Natural worming programmes for your cat


Cats get worms. This is a fact. Unfortunately these worms can cause a great deal of discomfort and even serious illness (or death). So having an effective worming regime is vital.

But where to start? Your veterinary surgeon will be able to advise on a programme for your cat. This may involve the use of chemical wormers to get rid of the worms. Although now there's an increasing acceptance of the need to not use chemical wormers, to reduce resistance and ultimately them not working.

There are other ways to control worm burden, which are holistic and natural. These often use herbs and other natural plants which have properties that promote intestinal health.

My favourite natural range to help animals manage intestinal hygiene is Verm-X. They include crunchies for cats. I have the dog version for my dogs and they love them! Find their range for many animals online at https://verm-x.com
