If you are thinking about getting a Chausie cat, you should first learn about caring for one. The Chausie cat is a hybrid of domestic cats and wild Jungle Cats. This cat breed demands a lot of attention; it is also affectionate, active, and highly intelligent. Your cat is dependent on you to take care of her, so make sure you do it to the best of your ability.
Housing Your Chausie Cat
Do you have the right household for a Chausie cat? They generally manage fine with other cats and dogs, but they don’t make good pets for families with young children. Do you have lots of breakables? Put them away, or you may not have them anymore. And if you have a low toleraance for mischief, don’t get a Chausie cat.
Feeding Your Chausie Cat
Some Chausie cats can’t tolerate gluten, so yours may require a special diet (check with your veterinarian). A high protein, low carbohydrate diet is ideal, not only for the Chausie, but for all cats. Measure her food each day to control the amount of weight your cat gains. Make sure to leave a water bowl in an accessible area so your cat can easily take a drink when she is thirsty.
Grooming Your Chausie Cat
The Chausie requires very little grooming (as most cats do). Her hair is short, but you might want to brush it daily to keep it shiny and to spend some time bonding with your cat. You may also choose to give her a bath on occasion, when needed. Finally, trim her nails regularly.
Toys for Your Chausie Cat
The Chausie is very active and has a ton of energy. You will want to have plenty of toys around to keep her entertained and spend time playing with her each day for bonding. Make sure they are sturdy toys that she will not be able to break and swallow, otherwise supervise her play.
Keep the Litter box Clean
Cats don’t like to eliminate in a dirty litter box, so scoop it out daily and replace the litter weekly. If you don’t clean it out, your cat probably won’t use it, and may even have accidents on the floor. Besides, your house will start to smell.
Otherwise known as a Jungle Curl, Stone Cougar, or Mountain Cougar, the Chausie cat is a hybrid of domestic cats and wild Jungle Cats. The Chausie combines the genial nature of a domestic cat with the beauty and elegance of a Jungle Cat. They demand a lot of attention, but they are highly affectionate, active, and intelligent animals.
