Cat in autumn, how to manage it and take care of its coat

When it comes to keeping your cat healthy and helping them enjoy life to the fullest, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Autumn is a very significant time of year for our animal friends, crisp air, colorful foliage and even, depending on where you live, some snow, but it is also a very dangerous and cramped time for our furry friends

 Dangerous autumn

Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean ticks aren’t lurking yet. Many species of ticks are in fact active even in winter and can survive the first frost. Keep using tick control products, especially if your cat friend spends a lot of time outdoors.

In addition this time of year is characterized by the increase of fleas. The eggs in the rugs and soft furnishings begin to hatch once the heat is turned on. There are products available that can protect both your pets and your home.

Autumn is the time of year when mice, rats, and other rodents start running around for some warmth. So be careful when it comes to traps and rat poison, nobody wants an infestation, but many poisons that are currently on the market can be very harmful to dogs and cats. Direct ingestion can be fatal.

The cat loses its fur

Like dogs, cats also moult 2 times a year with the transition from autumn to winter and from winter to spring, although they usually shed much more hair when good weather arrives, our cat friends can shed a considerable amount of coat even in autumn.

It is impossible to avoid, but if you notice this phenomenon at other times of the year, especially if you notice some “bald” spots, it would be advisable to take your cat immediately to an expert, so that the vet can tell exactly what to do. what is due to the loss of hair.

Cats love to be pampered so, especially in this period, brush your cats, and if they are not used to the “bath” use special wipes for dry cleaning.

And if you are the roommates of a long-haired cat, we recommend brushing even 2 times a day in order to avoid the fur getting tangled in painful knots.

Nutrition is very important and can help, there are several types of cat food  that will help you get through the shedding season as quickly as possible with far fewer problems.
