Luna

Little bit about Luna

Like all pets, cats require of some basic needs. It is best to set them up with a good quality adult diet, fresh water available at all times, a soft bristled brush, a soft bed, a litter box and a lot of love and care.

Cats will play with almost anything. One important caution is don’t let your cat start to associate your hands with a play toy. Doing so can develop into bad habits of scratching and biting fingers. Hands are for holding, stroking and gentle hugs. Toys are for rough play.

Most cats will quickly learn to use a litter box. Make sure the box is not right next to the feeding station. Above all, keep the litter box clean.

The best way for an owner to promote a long and healthy life for their pet is to provide an enriched indoor environment including a scratching post, a variety of stimulating toys and human interaction.

When I came into the shelter I had something called periodontal disease. This is when there are dental pockets around my tooth rot which is caused by bacteria, which affects the ligaments and bones around the root of the tooth. Lucky for me, the nice vets took out the bad teeth and gave the rest a good clean. To keep my teeth in tip top shape, it is best if you get me yearly dental check ups and feed me a good dental diet and dental chews.

I have also recovered from cat flu. It is very similar to what a cold looks like in humans but it is a cat only strain, so you don’t have to worry about me making you sick.. While I have recovered, I will always have it in my system and under times of stress I can show symptoms of it again. If I go home with other felines it would be best to keep us separated for the first two weeks so I don’t risk spreading it to them. If in the future you notice me coming down with the “flu” (sneezing, watery eyes, discharge) then it would be best to take me to the vet for a check up. I will need to be kept an indoor only cat for the rest of my life.

Be sure to praise me profusely for being a good cat.
