We have two fluffy, loving cats at my house. They are brother and sister and we adopted them when they were 6 weeks old. I let my kids name the cats…and that is how they ended up with the names Salt and Pepper. One cat is black so Pepper fits…the other cat is yellow….go figure, LOL! My kids have traditionally taken care of our cats and since we spaced our kids out…it is almost time to train our 3rd child in cat care. These cat care tips for kids are the perfect way to get her up to speed on how to take awesome care of our furry friends!
Cat Care Tips for Kids
Feed the Cats Daily
It may seem OBVIOUS to adults that the cats need to be fed everyday, but sometimes these basics escape our kids attention.
I reinforced to my daughter that she has to give the cats food each and every day. If she is going to be spending the night with a friend we will pick up the slack for her!
Fresh Water Daily
Sometimes when a child sees a water dish that still has water in it the inclination will be that no work needs to be done in this area. WRONG answer kids! 🙂
We like to make sure our cats have a big bowl of FRESH water every single day. It is also important to talk to kids about using a bowl that is deep enough for cats to drink out of.
Cleaning Out the Litter Box
Cleaning out the litter box has always been the part my kids dreaded. Let's face it…it isn't a fun task. The good news is that it can be EASY if you have the right supplies.
We were so excited to get the new Litter-Robot III from AutoPets Pet-Tech. (I received this product at no cost in return for my honest review. All thoughts are 100% my own) The Litter-Robot has made cleaning out the cat box a breeze for my kids (and sometimes me too, LOL).
Let me tell you why we are SOLD on this pet technology.
AutoPets Pet-Tech Litter-Robot III
The Litter-Robot is an automatic self-cleaning litter box. This really is a high-tech cat box!!
It senses when the cat is done and then it automatically starts a patented sifting process that separates the waste from the clean litter. It puts all the clumps of waste into a waste drawer for easy disposal.
The Litter-Robot creators thought of the little things too. For instance there is an automatic night-light to help elderly cats during night-time visits. My cats are both elderly so this is awesome for them.
The litter chamber is really spacious so it is perfect for cats both big and small (5 lbs and up).
I love that the waste drawer has an indicator light so my kids know when to dump it.
I also love that this will keep the cat box clean if we are out-of-town for a day or two!!
There is also a 90 day money-back guarantee and an 18-month warranty. That always gives me peace of mind as a customer.
Check out this video to see the Litter-Robot in action!
Plenty of Love
Part of taking care of pets is giving them plenty of love and affection. It isn't hard with our cats because they find us and demand snuggles, LOL.
