Keeping your cats teeth clean is as important as keeping your own ones intact. Cats are prone to a handful of different tooth diseases such as FORL. Brush your cats teeth regularly to avoid pain and expensive teeth hygienist’s bills.

7. Transport Carrier

8. Kitty Litter Without Perfume
It is important to use a kitty litter that your cat is satisfied with to avoid unfortunate accidents. Try to use a litter without perfume to minimise sneezing and allergic reactions from your cat.
9. Pet Tag
If your cat is going to go outdoors without a leash you are going to need to use a pet tag. If they run off, the chances of them returning home is more than 70% more likely if the cat has a tag marked with a phone number or address.
Look at what your cat will be doing when they are home alone! If you are away from home a lot it is a good idea to have a camera at home. This way you can see if your kitty starts to become irate and sad to be alone, and of course see if they are up to something bad. If the cat is sad to be home alone, consider getting them a furry friend.
