Your cat loves the summer season as much as you do! She really likes to walk between the currant bushes, look into the well and dig dill beds … But just like a person, any animal needs special conditions to make its stay in nature safe and comfortable.
If you have just brought a cat to the dacha, do not let her walk around the site right away. First, take her into the house, let her get used to it. It is best if the pet stays on a leash for the first hours on the street.
Next, the animal needs to determine the place. For example, build a large mesh enclosure. There, the animal will sit almost all day and feel safe. If you do not have a large plot, then it is quite enough to select a corner in the hallway. Put the tray there for needs.
Do not let the animal mark the territory anywhere, otherwise it can harm your crop (urine contains a secret that burns the roots of plants). Remember that cats love loose and dry soil, so keep the soil moist in important places. You can also make mesh fences. Create shelter for the children's sandbox.
Treat the wool with anti-flea drugs (and it is better to wear a special flea collar). Examine the ears and nose for mites.
Make sure that your pet does not leave its territory! First, she can get lost. Secondly, your neighbors are unlikely to appreciate the presence of an animal in their beds. And stray dogs may well attack.
Cats love to bite on plants, many of which can be poisonous. What to do? For example, plant catnip (or another harmless plant) in your country house and show it to your pet. So the cat will remember that you can bite the grass here. And of course, while the animal is in the country, refrain from using various chemicals. It's best to keep them away!
Surely your cat will love a tree and begin sharpening its claws on it regularly. The plant must be protected by tying the trunk with a net or overlapping with boards. And when you see a cat on the tops of an apple tree, do not climb behind it! Whenever she wants, she will go down herself!
Close the well, the country toilet, so that the pet does not fall there.
Do not leave your cat outside at night!
The main thing is that before you take your pet to the country, get the necessary vaccinations (enteritis, rabies, and others). If the cat is purebred, then it may be better to sterilize so that later there are no kittens from the outbred neighbor's cat. And when you bring your pet back home, be sure to bathe, treat it again with anti-ticks and fleas and give an antihelminthic drug.
