Transcript of Cats and Kittens

Cats And Kittens!
Cats hair needs to be combed daily. Some cats actually really like to be combed. Some, however, don't really. Long and short haired cats should both be combed daily, but long haired cats may need a little more brushing. Also, cats need bathing although they lick themselves. But cats don't really like hairballs, exactly, so that's why you should bathe them. Also, so they don't get sick.
Cats, as you may know, have claws. Some don't because they are declawed, or had their claws removed. Cats will claw just about anything, seriously, you name it, they claw it. They scratch stuff sometimes for fun, sometimes for annoyance, but mainly to put their own scent on it as if to state "this is mine now!" Cats will also claw things to remove the old layer on their claws, with a new, sharper, fresher layer of clawage. Cats and kittens need their claws trimmed occasionally. Scratch posts are also good, too. The pads on cats feet are the scent distributers.
Cats are beautiful.
Cats are adorable.
Cats are loving.
Cats and Kittens!
The Complete History of Cats and Water and Food
Cats wild prey is made up of about 75% of water, so a cat or kitten should get right around that when they eat food. Cats won't drink as much water (then again, some drink it like its their job) because of their own food that they eat. But water is a necessity of life, so therefore, cats must have clean, fresh water. Its quite vital. There are two kinds of cat food, wet and dry. Carbohydrates, or carbs, are plentiful in dry food, which can be harmful. Cats need a healthy balance of both dry and wet foods. Wet food is a bit healthier because it has more protein, but still cats need both.
