If your cat doesn't have chew toys, she's not getting all the dental care that she needs. In the wild, cats chew on bones and grass which remove tartar from their teeth. Owners of house cats often neglect their cats' teeth, but indoor cats need lots of attention to those pearly whites. If ignored, those teeth will eventually cause pain, loss of appetite, and listlissness... not to mention high dental bills!
One cool cat toy especially made for a cat's oral health is Pet Craft Supply's Cactus Cat Chew Toy. One hundred percent natural rubber that Pet Craft writes is "safe, durable, and bite resistant. The 4 x 3 inch cactus-shaped chew is cleverly stuffed with Pet Craft's special appealing cat nip and silvervine recipe, so fragrant that even I can smell it... and I have to say it's delightful!
Package of fragrant catnip and silvervine to tuck inside!
The Cactus Chew Toy is effective at removing stains and tartar, the major cause of gum disease. Additionally, it removes 'cat breath.' One customer writes about how much her cat loves his Cactus Chew Toy and adds: "It's been less than 24 hours and his breath has already improved significantly."
I know most people think that chew toys are just for dogs, but certain chew toys are especially designed to clean a cat's teeth, and they are a must in addition to:
* Regular brushing: at least 3 times per week is recommended. If that is too scary (for you to face), some veterinarians recommend the use of cat dental gels daily. It's always best to start brushing or rubbing dental gels in your cats' mouths when they are young to get them used to having your fingers in their mouths.
* Special dental care cat food to help abrade the teeth and remove tartar.
* And tartar-reducing cat treats, which are also abrasive to the teeth.
Whether or not you have a complete dental regime set up yet for your cat, the Pet Craft Supply Cactus Cat Toy will be welcomed. Your cat won't even know it's good for her!
That's the buzz for today!
