What Are the Main Topics of Cat Care to Cover for Kids?
A reader contacted me recently saying that their family was considering getting their first pet and they’ve chosen a cat.
She would like to know essential topics to cover with her kids about cats. What are ones you can think of? I thought about the following:
- Food – having a feeding schedule and the importance of keeping to it.
- Litter box – the importance of a clean litterbox and also paying attention to the output in the box
- Play – the importance of exercise for the kitty
- Sleep – not disturbing the kitty when it’s sleeping
I know it will depend if the cat comes into the family as a kitten or an adult cat. And also, the cat’s previous history, etc. If you have books, etc. that you can recommend that might help them – please list them the comments section below. Or if you have gone through this process with your kids, please list what you did and what worked and what didn’t and why.
