Food & Treats

It's extremely important to provide proper nutrition for British shorthair cats for their health and wellbeing.

There are a lot of different brands of dry and wet food on the market. We recommend that you feed your furry friend with premium quality food (dry and wet) such as Royal Canin, Dr.HIll's, Applaws, and Stella & Chewy. We also suggest feeding raw food as well (Darwin's Natural Selection chicken/turkey/beef).

From birth to 12 months, feed your kitten dry and wet food specifically made for kittens. After 12 months, feed your adult-cat with dry and wet food designated for adults. Don't forget to spoil your furry one with some treats. 

Oral Care

Use oral care products for cats to keep their teeth clean and gums healthy.

Use toothbrush kit to clean and polish cats teeth.

Oxyfresh water additive, dental treats, dental sticks with catnip and finger wipes freshens pet breath, promote healthy gums and fights plaque and tartar build-up.

Vitamins & Supplements 

Cat-designated multivitamins help support a healthy immune system, better mobility & flexibility, alongside a shiny coat. Glucosamine is given for hip & joint health. Omegas DHA Fatty Acids for energy, heart strength & brain function. Vitamins & antioxidants also improve immunity & digestion.

Eye Care & Grooming 

British shorthair has a short coat that needs only minimal grooming. Brush your cat once a week using a soft slicker brush. Brush more frequently during the periods of seasonal shedding to remove loose hair using grooming gloves.

Trim the nails every other week to protect your furniture from getting scratched. 

Check the insides of their ears weekly. If you notice a little debris in the ears, use a pet-ear cleaning wipe. If you see some dry pieces around the eye and/or tears, clean them using eye wash pads.

Excercise & Toys

Even as adults, British Shorthair cats are playful and can stay active by exploring the house and playing with toys like feather wands, toy balls, catnip toys, and automatic lasers.

 

It's important to provide your cat with things to climb and perch on, such as cat trees and condos, to set up acceptable scratching places in the house, including vertical and horizontal scratchers made of materials like cardboard or sisal. This will help keep your cat active and enriched.

Equipment

To prevent weight-related health issues like diabetes and heart disease, it's best keep British Shorthair cats at a healthy weight. An automatic feeder with portioned intake can help establish their feeding habits. Fresh and easily accessible water is also important, and a water fountain can encourage cats to drink more. There are many types of litter boxes and litter available on the market.

When choosing a litter box, it's important to consider the size of your cat and the space available in your home. Covered litter boxes can provide privacy for your cat, but they may also trap unpleasant odors. Open litter boxes are easier to clean and can be more comfortable for larger cats. As for litter, there are many options available, including clumping, non-clumping, scented, and unscented. It's best to experiment with different types to find the that works best for your cat and your home.
