Cats tend to have the stomachs capable of containing more food than their actual weight. Well, at least that’s what it looks like when your insatiable pet consumes chicken, fish, beef and your favorite spider plant, and it sometimes seems that the pressure inside it should overshoot.

Moggie vet’s advice: protect your furniture from being scratched

Anticipating the new season of the “Game of Thrones”, we suddenly decided that George Martin must have had a huge trouble trying to make his cat scratch only certain pieces of the furniture. That must have resulted in the idea of the Iron Throne, invulnerable to the cat activities.

Unless all your furniture is decorated with swords, you may have experienced some little misunderstandings with your cat about where it is appropriate to sharpen her claws. It’s a natural behavior, as the cats rely a lot on the sharpness of their nails. It’s their weapon of attack and protection, their means of climbing vertical surfaces, and many more. So the kitty aims to keep them as sharp as possible.

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
