Facts about British blue short haired cats
My new kitten
As you probably dont know 2 weeks ago I got a baby kitten called Jasper. He is a British Blue breed of cat and is 14 or 15 weeks old. In honor of him I have decided to write an article about his breed of cat. I will be telling you some fun cat toy do it your self’s, what they like to eat and much more! So lets get into the actual article!
British blue Cat toy Diy!
British blue cats love a good play especially when they are in their young stage of life. They just cant resist a new fun toy to play with. So iam going to tell you some cute diy’s you can make yourself . This is one of my favourites it is a mouse toy. To make all you will need 1. Felt or fabric 2. scissors 3. marker 4. A needle and thread 5. stuffing and lastly and optional cat nip and jingle bell. Firstly grab a piece of fabric or felt and fold it in half ( I used a square 4 x 4 inches). With your marker draw half of a teardrop on the folded fabric or felt. Cut along the line you have just drawn. Next draw the little eyes with a marker. Cut out 2 extra circles using your spare fabric or felt for the ears of the mouse. Stitch the ears in place. Once you have the ears now add the tail ( you can use yarn, fabric, shoe lace or even ribbon to make the tail you choose!)Stitch it in place just like the ears. Now fold the mouse in half. Sew the edge only leaving a small opening for the stuffing. Stuff the mouse till it is the shape and size you like.If you prefer you can use cat nip or a bell to go on the inside to. When you have finished the stuffing you just sew up the hole and wala you have a mouse toy for your cat!
Another but quicker Diy is a dangling cat toy you can use to play with your cats. ( kittens love playing with this the most! ) All you will need is a shoe lace and a ribbon or needle and thread if necessary . All you need to do is tie your ribbon in a bow then tie or thread the ribbon onto the shoe lace and there you have it your very own interactive cat toy
Food Glorious food!
British blue cats and kittens can always resist a small treat but beware do not feed your cat/kitten to much as this type of breed can put on a lot of weight if you are not carefully so beware! For the kittens I would suggest giving them Royal Canin dry food kitten version which is very good and gets their jaw moving. Also I wold recommend using dreamies as they are a good treat for any occasion but only give them the maximum of 6 a day. When cats or kittens are still young do not give them any wet or canned food. When your cat becomes a young adult you can still buy royal canin only for the adults.
