Cat Life Hacks That’ll Change Your Life



In this video, we’ll look at 24 cat life hacks for cat owners to help give your pet better life and make things easier on you.

Prevent Hairballs in Cats
Simply add some fiber to your cat’s diet. Fiber improves the health of a cat’s coat and minimizes shedding. And remember to groom your cat regularly to remove excessive fur.
Help cats drink more water
Cats don’t drink a lot of water by nature, but they need hydration to prevent bladder and kidney problems. Instead of giving them a water bowl, get them a pet water fountain to encourage them drink more water.
Catnips
Cats love catnip and most kitties get hyperactive in response to this plant. To cats, catnip serves as a sedative when consumed and a stimulator when smelled. Spray some catnip spray on your cat’s scratcher to increase your cat’s interest in her scratching post.
Here are foods that cats shouldn’t eat.
Keep your cat off surfaces
If you have a new countertop or table that you don’t want your cat to get their claws on, simply cover the surface in aluminum foil. Cats hate the rustling sound that aluminum foil makes when they walk on it.
You can also cover the surface with a double-sided tape. Cats absolutely hate the feel of stickiness and will be repelled almost immediately.
Protect Your Plants
Cats tend to like to dig, chew and knock over your plants. To protect your plants, you can place popsicle sticks, tooth sticks, pinecones, stones on top of the plant’s soil. And remember, cats have a strong distaste for anything citrus. You can simply spray the leaves of your plant with citrus scent.
Other homemade repellents that cats hate are vinegar, citronella, pepper, and garlic.
Get rid of allergies and odors
Having a cat in the house can mean more odors, allergens and dander in the air.
Keep an air filter or purifier in your home to remove the airborne dander, dust and allergens.
Insurance for pets
Make sure to get your pet insured before it is too late.
Favorite Game
Make your home even interesting for your cat by installing a series of shelves that act as steps up the wall.
Get rid of litter box odor
Add some green tea leaves into your cat’s litter box and it will help suppress bacteria growth and also absorb odors. You can also add a little bit of baking soda to the bottom of the litter pan to absorb odors.
Eliminate Urine Stains and Odors
Baking soda naturally neutralizes odors. If your cat has peed on your carpet, simply sprinkle some baking soda on the damp area or even an old urine stain, and then vacuum it up to remove the smell or stain completely. You can even apply some vinegar to the area to kill bacteria.
Food Puzzle
Cats love food puzzles. Make some holes in an empty water bottle, then fill the bottle with your cat’s favorite dry treat and give it to your cat to play.
Wrap your furniture legs with sisal
To protect your furniture from a frisky cat, tightly wrap some sisal rope around the legs of your kitchen or dining table.
Teach your cat
A common misconception about cats is that they cannot be trained.
Cats can indeed be taught certain behaviors with the promise of treats. For example, you can train your cat not to jump on your lovely leather couch.
Get rid of their hair on your furniture.
To remove cat hair from your carpet or sofa, simply put a pair of rubber gloves on and dampen them. Rub the gloves back and forth on your upholstery. This will cause the hair to ball up, and then you can remove the hair in one simple clump.
You can also place the sticky side of duct tape over the fabric. When you remove the duct tape, the hair will come up with it.
Leave your cat carrier out
Do you have trouble getting your cat into their carrier? Leave your carrier out and your pet will sniff it, lie inside it, and all around get used to it. This way, they won’t immediately associate it with getting a shot at the vet.
Litterbox Barrier
You can keep your dog from getting into the litter by elevating the box.
Bath Time
Use a sink instead of the bathtub to bathe your cat. The smaller space will make it easier to wash them.
Unrolling the toilet paper
Simply tuck in the loose paper in one end of the tube or spray your toilet and the area with a citrus scent to prevent your cat from unrolling the toilet paper.
Keep Ants Away
To deter ants from becoming interested in your cat’s food, simply use a chalk to draw a circle around your pet’s dish. Also, many essential oils like Eucalyptus, Thyme, Cinnamon or Peppermint are great, natural way to repel ants.
whisker stress
Eating too fast isn’t good for a cat’s digestive system. It can even cause a cat to throw up their food. To overcome this, put their food on a flat plate. This’ll help reduce your cat’s eating speed and prevent whisker stress which occurs when a cat’s whiskers rub against the sides of their food bowl.
Pheromone diffuser
Cats don’t like change. If you are moving homes or adopting a new cat, buy some pheromone diffuser to help your cat adjust to the new environment.

  1. Cat ko main eyes se deep matlab ziada dekhoun eyes off ker dena otherwise face direction change ker dena why haisa kyoun kerti hein mujhay apni eyes dekhnay nahi deti .

  2. i cats play with foil, we have a cat tree and i put some catnip on it they all turned into mush and started to rub all over it, my babies love to steal my orange squash XD, i have bits of string all over the house they love a good bit of string, my older girl was becoming moody after a house move we got a defuser to help her relax shes more sociable now

  3. Not feeding dry food will help with hydration. Cats are obligate carnivores and their diet should reflect this. Dry food (and poor quality wet) is nearly always carb based, and leads to diabetes, kidney disease, dental disease and general poor health.
    Kibble is for human convenience only.

  4. If you wrap your furniture in sisal you’ll actually be teaching your cat to scratch the furniture & rewarding them for it. Not to mention the sisal will deplete as they scratch it until they’re literally clawing away at said furniture

  5. There is some serious issues with this video. LOL Cats are CATS !! They do not abide by the Life hacks you come up with. Some cats LOVE Aluminum foil. ( Its soo Crinkley ) TOOTH PICKS are Dangerous to Your Pet, As they may Eat or Swallow them. Leading to Costly Emergency Surgery to remove it. They are also dangerous for the home owner as well. And often end up in your feet ( Ouch ! ). NEVER use Toothpicks. Some Cats LOVE Citrus and Love PEPPERS. ( My Cat loves to eat Ghost Peppers, I have to hide them from her. I know she is Weird LOL ) Baking Soda Does not kill the enzymes that produce Odors from pets. Cats Pee and Spray Urine and a Pheromone Musk to mark territory, Using an Enzyme remover is best. Dont Use pheromone defusers, It will only confuse your cat more and make them more stressed. Like I said there is Way to much wrong with this video. Do these people even know Cats at all? LOL ( #Real Info. from a life time Multi cat Moggie Mum and Moggie Dad )

  6. Pine horse pellets makes excellent litter and it doesnt stink like litter. The urine turns to sawdust and will shift out bottom so a sifter box. Also it only cost $5. 50 for 40 lbs.

  7. 0:25 tried that and she didn't even drink from it at all,she rather drink from the faucet

    our cat oddly likes the cat carrier whenever we bring it out she just goes right in it,so I guess notall cats have fears of the cat carrier mine sure doesn't

  8. I am living in uk. When I arrive, I went to the vet with my 2 boys for vaccine and flies product. 400£. I said to the vet it think it’s was a mistake well no.
    So took a inssurance I pai 30£ . Was verry wise my cat died from a cancer, so he needed a scan 550£ chance i had inssurance.

    More concerning people who can’t afford a inssurance can not help the cat when get sick or heal? So they have to leave the animal souffre to sometime dead.
    I believe a law should be made to help at least for euthanasia for animal In paliative for people who can’t afford! My opinion only!
