How to take care of an Angora cat: characteristics, tips, and care

Today we are going to talk about one of the breeds that is ideal for the family. Angora cats are one of the most social, friendly, and loving breeds. It is the most affectionate and faithful cat that can exist. They love to be pampered and given a lot of affection; they’re also smart, so they will certainly learn everything you teach them. Let’s dive in and discover what care you should give to this breed of cats.

Toys

Angora cats are very active felines, try to have several toys so they can have fun while you are not at home. One of the favorite toys of this breed is cardboard boxes; do not forget to have one so that your cat has a lot of fun with it. Another great toy is cloth mice, which may or may not contain catnip.

Fur

It is important to brush your pet regularly; however, it doesn’t have to be every day. Two or three times a week will be enough, as this will keep their fur healthy and prevent them from leaving hair scattered around your house. Look out for the type of brush you choose, every fur has it’s own unique needs.

You must bathe them every 4 to 6 weeks, trying to use a special shampoo for them. This type of breed has very sensitive skin, before you buy a shampoo ask your veterinarian regarding the best choice for your cat, since a bad choice can likely cause some damage. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to use a dry bath since most cats do not like to be in the water.

Feeding

Feeding is a fundamental point for our cats. We must try to maintain a weight of around 4 kilos. To achieve this, you must provide a balanced food that helps your kitten to obtain the appropriate nutrients. And above all, you must not give additional food other than the indicated by the veterinarian. This can achieve two things: the first is that your little friend will have problems with his weight (which will surely bring health problems) and on the other hand, he is likely to have very noticeable behavioral symptoms of hunger, such as constant meowing, continuous incursions in the kitchen, etc.

Health

Just like humans, cats also need to visit the vet, eat properly and have all their vaccinations. That is why we must be aware of them to prevent diseases and that our little companion does not suffer from any disease that could have been avoided if we had done things right from the beginning.

Ear care

Keep your friends ears clean to prevent infection. To do a good job, use a damp cloth. The procedure for good cleaning starts by carefully cleaning the outer ear.

To clean the inner ear you must be extremely careful otherwise you will cause severe damage to the animal’s ear. There are products designed for these pets that are useful in preventing serious damage to the ear. And remember, only the ear should be cleaned, never the ear canal.

Affection

Although cats are very conservative animals, the Angora breed is an animal that is always looking for ways to receive affection or pampering. He will be delighted to be in the company of people with whom he gets along and will not rest until he is pleased.

Follow these tips and your Angora cat will always be happy. Remember to always be aware of its needs so that it can have a healthy and full life.
