House plants and the cat

Cats are the sort of friends who don’t always respect the boundaries. For some reason, quite frequently they step on your pillow, they steal meat from the table and they even pee on your shoes. They also tend to damage the house plants in different ways. If you are a fan of both, houseplants and cats, you will have to make a few corrections into your habits.

Moggie vet’s advice: cats don’t have dentists. Control the mouth and teeth health.

Check your cat’s mouth at least once a month – use the free Moggie app to receive a reminder about this routine. It’s also a good idea to check the cat’s teeth more frequently if the cat is not young anymore – the statistics says more than ⅘ of cats older than 3 year have some sort of problems with the mouth health.

Moggie vet’s advice: Grow some grass for your indoor cat

You may have noticed that cats sometimes behave oddly and eat plain grass. They didn’t go crazy, and they didn’t go vegan – they do it for a reason. Leaves of the grass help them clean their intestine.

Persian Cats – Gorgeous and Dignified

Imagine a luxurious palace interior ornamented with gold and ivory. And imagine a well-groomed cat that walks slowly towards the couch covered with purple velvet. Chances are high you have just imagined a Persian cat, in all her prideful glory.

Persian cats are one of the most popular breeds in UK and US. These cats are easy to recognize – they have a round face and a short muzzle. But the main thing everyone knows about them is they are really long-haired pets. They are deemed to be calm, quiet and easily adaptive.

But due to the breed peculiarities, these cats require additional care. If you plan on getting one, be ready to check her eyes every now and then and to watch the nutrition carefully (industrially made food may not be good for Persian cats because of the possible urinary tract problems). But what is going to be really a time-consuming routine is the grooming. We’ve addressed the Persian Cats community on Facebook and one of the admins, Aima, was very kind to tell us about her pets.
