hi guys! It is Claire and Rags, welcome back to relax my cat. Today I’m gonna tell you five ways you can keep your house nice and clean when you’ve got cat.
First of all, regularly brush your cats with a comb.
Now if you’ve got a cat who has a coat, so not like a sphynx or something like that it is not only good for your cat but also good for your house if you regularly brush your cat.
Not everybody loves the go to look for cat lovers, she has hair on everything so more regularly brush your cat. It is not only a lovely way to bond with your cats but also a way of getting rid of all those hair.
Two, vacuum regularly and , I mean like every other day or every day.
If you live in a house with mostly hardwood floors like me and rags do, it’s just as important to vacuum these as it is carpet. A lot of people think that because you don’t use carpets and rugs you don’t need to vacuum as much, but it’s a good practice to get into.
Three, wipe down your counters and keep them clean.
Now not all cats follow the rules of not jumping on the couches and those paws that are on your counter where you prepare food are very same paws that dip little holes for them to do their business either in the garden or in a litter tray. Usually if you’re captain on the side but a lot of evidences like a little paw prints or something knocked over or even eaten but you don’t know if your cat goes on to these surfaces when you’re not there. So make sure that you keep your surfaces nice and clean using plenty of soap and antibacterial products. Obviously make sure they’re also not only cleaning wipes down and drive as well you don’t want it kept getting chemicals on their paws
Four, combating the litter tray.
Now this is the Nemesis of most cat owners and it is the most glamorous part about owning these lovely little creatures they are potentially smelly and obviously there are things in there that aren’t very hygienic. So first of all clean out and clear up the litter box on a regular basis.
We have a video on how to properly clean the litter box. Step-by-step guide on how to properly clean a litter box but there are other things you can do as well with the actual litter box and the placing of it. now after your cat scans wants privacy with box so make sure it’s in a designating area that is away from high-traffic areas in your cat.
Now this can be a copper box or you can get a nice fancy cupboard like Reggie does with her litter box not only does this give you a cut privacy for this box which is very important there’s also another step to control the odors from your litter tray.
Finally Five, have a good or deep clean as necessary and regularly.
Now you should be deep cleaning regularly anyway just to keep your house looking nice and smelling nice and getting rid of bacteria and all that but it’s especially important if you have animals as well now animals are lovely furry gorgeous creatures and cats are quite fastidious with their cleanliness. But they are little animals and they do come with their own like muck and smells and things. Not only does a regulate deeply keep your house from looking and smelling lovely but it also makes it more hygienic too.
