Tips for a Happy, Healthy Cat

Everyone knows I am a huge lover of all living things but my cats hold a very special place in my heart. Cats are such fun-loving little creatures and I don’t know what I would do without each and every one of my eighteen! I love getting to try new products with my cats thanks to the Ceva Cat Babbleboxx with some great products from Catego™ and Feliway®… and a few fun items for myself! This post is sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of Ceva Cat.

Our cats are mainly outdoor cats but sometimes a few of them find themselves indoors. They have a wonderful barn they adore and it has mice galore! So, they are pretty content on their wonderful life. However, they are more likely prone to things like fleas and ticks since they are outdoors most of the time but indoor cats can just as easily get parasites. It’s important that we maintain our cats to keep them happy and healthy.

Flea and Tick Control

It’s very important to manage fleas and ticks on your cats before it becomes a problems. Fleas and ticks and bring disease and make your cat very unhealthy. Plus, fleas are very hard to get rid of once your cat has them especially if you have multiple cats.

Catego™ is an effective monthly prevention and treatment of fleas, ticks and chewing lice for cats and kittens. I can’t stress more how important it is to use a preventative program for your cats!

Catego™ is a topical flea and tick preventive designed specifically to meet the unique needs of your cats and only cats. It has one low-volume formulation for all cats weighing over 1.5 lbs and over 8 weeks of age. Catego™ kills fleas within 6 hours¹ (Advantage® II kills fleas within 12 hours² and Frontline Plus® kills fleas within 12 hours³) It also kills all life stages of ticks through contact which is so important!

Plus, it’s so easy to apply with the patented applicator. Apply the Catego™ topical treatment monthly to protect your cat from harmful parasites such as fleas, ticks and lice. With just one application, protection lasts for one full month. For detailed application instructions visit Categocat.com/how-to-apply. Shirley didn’t mind the applicator at all!

Keep Cats Feeling Safe

Let’s face it, cats are finicky creatures. Although they can be adventurous and fun, they also love their “me” time and enjoy being alone. We also want to make sure our cats feel safe in their environment. They can easily get scared especially when in a new place, having a new visitor or a new pet.

Feliway® is a copy of the natural feline facial pheromone. When cats feel safe in their environment, they rub their heads on household items such as furniture, depositing this pheromone. By making these ‘marks’ it helps cats feel more secure and is recognized by all cats.

By creating a state of familiarity and security with Feliway®, we help to comfort and reassure our cats as they cope with a challenging situation. Cats can get stressed very easily. This product is here to help them reduce or eliminate unwanted stress-related behaviors such as hiding, scratching and urine spraying. Urine spraying is the absolute worst!

I love that this product can help reduce urine spraying in 9 out of 10 cats within 1 month. It even helps reduce scratching in 8 out of 10 cats in as little as 7 days. I am a huge supporter of not declawing cats. I’ve worked at a veterinarian’s office and have seen first hand at how stressful this is on cats and kittens. It’s good to know there’s a safe product that can reduce scratching.

Feliway® for cats

Feliway® comes in several forms including a Feliway® Spray to apply at home or Feliway® Wipes that are ideal for traveling. It’s so easy to use whether you’re at home or on the go. It’s also perfect for wiping down your cat’s carrier when you’re headed to the vet’s office or on the go. You can see the Feliway® Wipes with Alfalfa below. You get several in one box.

Feliway® for cats

My favorite form is the Feliway® MultiCat Diffuser. You just plug it into the room where your cats spend the most time. For best results, use continuously for at least 30 days. If you have cats that don’t love one another yet then this is a great product to try for them to get along better. Cledus is trying to show off the Feliway® MultiCat Diffuser.

Of course, no box is thrown out especially when you have cats! Cats love just about anything they can crawl in. Boxes are a favorite for cats. The Ceva Cat Babbleboxx turned into a special cat castle of their furry purrince and purrincess’ dreams. Although not all the cats can fit in the box, many of them tried but only a few seem to rule over this new, cozy domain! Shirley pretty much loves this new cat castle!

  1. I have learned more and more that regular dental check ups and cleanings for cats is a must. Later in life, cats can get terrible bacterial infections from built up tarter and lack of dental care. Unfortunately, I am learning the hard way. I wish I had known dental cleanings was so important even for cats!

  2. I have used the Catego flees & ticks on three of my cats today and will see how it works and will keep you posted!
