In order to make Siamese cats a better life, many owners do everything they can to, but the maintenance of Siamese cats does not rely on giving them the best food and living environment. The best for them is the best. To raise a Siamese cat well, the owner must do the following tasks:
1. Eat healthy and reasonable
In addition to allowing cats to supplement comprehensive nutrition, the owner must also pay attention to that soft foods such as canned food cannot exercise the cat’s teeth. If you eat soft foods for a long time, your cat may be more susceptible to dental calculus disease. In order to avoid this situation, the owner must control the ratio of dry and wet cat food. In addition, the owner should not be lucky enough to let the cat eat some food that should not be eaten, know that if there is any problem, the cat will have to endure a lot of pain.

In order to cut the cat’s nails more smoothly, the owner must adhere to the principle of “quick, accurate, and ruthless”. If the cat’s nails cannot be cut at one time, they can save it for the next time.
Three, frequent bathing is not a good thing
Cats themselves are clean animals, so they will not leave their bodies in a messy state. However, this does not mean that the owner does not need to bathe the cat to clean the body. Bathing the cat regularly can remove the dust and peculiar smell on their body and reduce the chance of disease. But the frequency of bathing must be controlled well. Generally, taking a bath once a month can achieve the effect of cleaning the cat’s body. If you bathe too frequently, the cat’s body oil balance may be broken, which is not conducive to the health of the cat’s skin and hair.
4. Conservation in a special period
When the cat is in a special period (childhood, old age, pregnancy, etc.), the owner needs to give special care.

However, once the cat is weaned, the owner must begin to take care of the kittens, because kittens have a small stomach capacity, but they need a lot of nutrients and calories, so eating less and more meals is the standard for feeding them.
2. In addition to supplementing adequate nutrition for elderly cats, their food should also be changed accordingly-increasing the proportion of soft food and reducing the proportion of dry food. In addition, the appetite of elderly cats may also become poor. The owner can regularly prepare other foods for the cats to stimulate their appetite.
3. When the cat is pregnant, the owner may need to supplement the cat with additional nutrients to ensure the healthy growth of the mother and the fetus; when the cat is giving birth, the owner should help the mother cat to take care of the kitten, such as being a mother When the cat has no milk or not enough milk, the owner must purchase a special milk powder for the cat to brew the kitten.
Siamese cat feeding requirements

However, regular consumption of wet food is not good for cats’ dental health and may cause cats to become more healthy. Picky eaters. Under such circumstances, experts recommend that the owner feed the cat at a certain ratio of dry to wet.
In addition to cat food sold on the market, some owners also make their own cat food to feed their cats. The owner of self-made cat food needs to pay attention to two points: choose the right ingredients and meet the nutritional needs of the cat. Before preparing food for the cat, the owner must first determine which food is beneficial to the cat and which food will poison the cat. Choosing the food that the cat can eat is the first step to ensure the cat’s health. When the ingredients are selected, the owner must also see if the ingredients can meet the nutritional needs of the cat, and if not, other ingredients should be added to ensure the healthy growth of the cat.
With the improvement of living standards, the owners not only spend their minds on the cat’s staple food, but they will also use their brains on the cat’s snacks. The owners of snacks are also divided into two groups-direct purchase pie and homemade pie. The snacks sold on the market are made entirely in accordance with the cat’s physical condition. These snacks have low salt and oil content. While ensuring the taste, they also pay attention to the cat’s health. Homemade snacks are a private customized service. Give cats what they like. This kind of snacks is the easiest for cats to love. Regardless of the supply of snacks, the owner must control the amount, because excessive supply of snacks may cause cats to be obese, picky eaters, or suffer from various diseases. It will be too late to stop providing snacks by then.
In addition, owners may neglect to provide cats with cat grass. This is to prevent cats from swallowing too much hair and unable to vomit out. Some cats may not have a cold with cat grass, so the owner can give the cat a hair cream at this time. In order to allow the cat to swallow as little hair as possible, the owner can comb the cat every day to remove the dead hair that has not fallen off on the cat’s body and prevent the cat from swallowing it directly.
