The most important thing to do when you have a cat is to keep them healthy and happy. That's why it's so important to have a cat care schedule! Here are some things you should do for your cat at regular intervals:
Feeding schedule: Feed your cat twice a day, at the same time every day.
Feed in the morning and evening. This helps establish a routine that will be easy for you to keep up with. Cats are nocturnal, so they're typically more active during night hours than during the day—but feeding them late in the evening may cause them to wake you up in the middle of your sleep! It’s best to feed your cat right before bedtime and right after waking up in the morning.
Use measuring cups and spoons (or just put their food into jars). The size of their meals should be based on their weight; check with your vet if you aren't sure how much food is appropriate for them! If you have multiple cats at home, split up their portions accordingly (some cats won't get along well with others if they're eating from each other's bowls).
Clean the litter box daily. If your cat is a messy guy or gal, you may want to clean it sooner than that.
Clean food and water bowls daily. Cats are picky about where their food and water goes—they don't like to eat from a bowl that's been sitting out for too long!
Clean the litter box weekly. You can use all-natural cleaners such as vinegar and baking soda, or store-bought solutions if you prefer something stronger (but remember: cats are very sensitive creatures, so be careful not to use anything toxic).
Clean the litter box monthly. Use this time as an opportunity to make sure everything looks good—check for tears in the liner of your box, remove any loose clumps of waste matter that have formed at the bottom of your cat's toilet (gross, but important), wash down any surfaces that were touched during pet cleanup duty, etc., etc., etc..
You should also check for the following:
Fleas and ticks. These are external parasites that can cause itching, hair loss, and more serious infections if left untreated. If you see a flea or tick on your cat, it's time to visit the vet.
Worms (roundworms in particular). These intestinal parasites can be transmitted by fleas or consumed through contaminated food and water sources like soil or litter boxes. They're generally easy to treat with medication so don't wait until symptoms develop before seeking help from your vet—particularly if you're concerned about them spreading to other pets or family members!
Ear mites. Another common parasite found within the ear canal of cats is ear mites; they cause severe itching around the ears as well as discharge from those same areas. Your veterinarian will likely prescribe an anti-parasite medication such as ivermectin paste that's safe for both humans and animals alike!
Have a routine for cat care
It’s important to have a routine for cat care. A cat care schedule can help you stay on top of the tasks that your cat needs in order to be healthy and happy. Some people use a written schedule, but others find it more convenient to use a simple checklist of items that need to be completed each day. If you’re just starting out with cat care, make sure you don’t overwhelm yourself with too many tasks at once! You can always add more items after you have mastered the basics.
When creating your own cat care routine:
Keep things simple at first by focusing on just one thing each day (such as feeding or brushing). If it isn’t working out well then move onto something else! Don't worry about getting everything perfect right away—you'll get there eventually!
Make sure everyone knows what they're supposed to do when caring for their pet, so(s) there won't be any confusion later on down the line when it comes time for these duties again next week/month/year etcetera...
