There are a few things owners of cats should stop doing to their pets
You are eating your favorite meal at night, but you decide to turn around for a moment and all of a sudden, you see a strange unknown creature staring back at you (probably a ghost or a beast). How would you react? Let us know in the comments below.
A lot of funny, meme videos online (would share some in this content) show cat owners sneaking behind the cat while it’s eating, then placing a cucumber behind the cat without it knowing, just to see how it reacts. The majority of cats will jump into the air as soon as they see the fruit, but some will even attempt to fight back.
The question we should ask ourselves is this: are cats really scared of cucumbers, despite the fact that they are among the most ferocious creatures on earth?
Clearly, the answer to this question is no. What makes cats jump into the air at the slightest sight of a cucumber? If they aren’t afraid of cucumbers, then why would they jump? There are certain things you shouldn’t do as a cat parent, as these things could hurt your cat and destroy the trust they have in you.
Shocking or surprising them.
Having fun with your cat is cool, but it is best to always do it correctly. Your kitty would certainly be scared by the cucumber prank, which could lead to shock, anxiety, aggressive behavior, and psychological stress. By playing this prank, cats may also feel threatened or endangered since they may assume that there is a dangerous animal living with them (such as a snake). As the prank is always played when cats are eating, it might also cause them to lose appetite. Having your cat lose interest in eating could be a sign of uninvited guests (diseases).
Sounds that are unnecessary or unpleasant.
Always remember that there is a kitty at home before you turn up your favorite music to the highest volume. Cats, just like humans, hate noise, whether it is loud music, metallic objects dropping, or the sounds of kids playing in the house. It is important for you to avoid unpleasant sounds when you have pets, as this may cause fear in them and make them uncomfortable.
Giving your cat a bath.
You should never make this part a habit because it is really fun and funny. My brother was so obsessed with our chicken chick that he always bathed it after it gave birth for the first time. In response to questions about why this is, he would say that animals also deserve to be clean like humans. It is not always necessary to bathe pets unless it is necessary. Because cats love to groom themselves, bathing them is not always necessary for cat owners. Unless your kitty needs to clean up, you should never engage in this habit.
Declawing your cats
It is never a good idea to declaw a cat.
It is only through their claws that cats protect themselves. Declawing your cat is a bad habit because it makes them defenseless. If you do this, your cat may lose trust in you. Consider getting your cat a scratching post instead of declawing it, as this will help them express their natural scratching behavior.
Feeding them with human food.
It’s always important to remember your cat is a cat, not a human, even if it eats some human food. It has been reported that some cats have died because they ate human food. If you want your cat to live a long life, avoid giving them milk, tea, coffee, chocolate, raw fish, raw eggs, animal bones, yeast, and alcohol. When in doubt about what food to feed your kitty, ask your vet and remember not to force your cat to eat human food.
Every cat owner must be concerned about the health and safety of their cats, as cats see us, humans, as their big parents and will always seek our trust and attention.
