In fact, it is not difficult to train Myanmar cats and maintenance.Because cats are different from dogs, it does not obey human habits, so some people think that training cats are impossible.Actually, it is true that cats cannot learn to shake hands with people like dogs, but they can sit still, but they can realize that they live with the owner and maintain a good relationship with the owner. Even cats, they will feelComfortable.
The maintenance of Burmese cats
The skin and cats are a solid barrier for cats. It can prevent the loss of water in the body, resist some mechanical damage, and protect the body from harmful physical and chemical damage.
In the cold winter, the skin and the hair have good thermal insulation performance, making cats have a strong ability to protect the cold.In the summer, being hairy is another heavy radiator, which plays a role in reducing body temperature.
There are many feelings in the cat's skin that can feel the changes in the internal and external environment.Feels can feel one or several stimuli, such as cold, heat, tactile sensation, pressure, pain, etc.
The cat was grown from the skin hair follicles, and the hair follicles were long bag -shaped.There are two types of cat hair follicles, one is an isolated hair follicle with only one hair, and the other is a composite hair follicle with multiple hair.Cat hair follicles are mainly composite hair clothes.
Therefore, the cat's quilt is dense, about 200 per square millimeter.Mao can be divided into two types: needle hair and fluff.The cat's skin also has sebaceous glands and sweat glands.The secretions of the sebaceous glands are oily, which can make the hair bright and smooth.The cat's sweat glands are not developed, and it cannot be adjusted like a person's sweat glands. Its heat dissipation is mainly radiated by the skin to heat dissipation or breathing heat dissipation.
The feeding of Burmese cats
The first few weeks of the kitten life rely on breast milk, without adding food.During this period, the ideal growth rate should be 100 grams per week.However, due to the effects of nutrition, variety, and female cat weight, there are great differences among different individuals.Sometimes insufficient breast milk supply should provide special dairy supplies, and supply it 24 hours a day and night.Like a dog, not only helps feed manually, but also helps to urinate and discharge dung.
From 3-4 weeks, the kitten has been interested in the food of female cats.Can give kittens some fine soft foods or dry foods soaked with milk or water.Foods can be made of female cats or specially made of kittens.Once the kitten starts to eat solid food, the weaning process starts.The kittens gradually eat more and more solid food, and weaned completely at 7-8 weeks.
Recently, WCPN (Munday and Earle, 1991) has begun to investigate the energy taken from solid food before the cat is fully weaned. At 4 weeks, the kitten only eats about 10g (10-40 kilograms/kg weight) food per day.Part of it is still provided by breast milk.By the age of 5 weeks (the 6th week of lactation), each kitten eats 15-45g of food a day, which is equal to 250-350 kilograms/kg weight (depending on the energy density in the diet).The ingestion of energy from solid foods is increased from zero at 2 or 3 weeks at the age of 800 to 800 karling/kg at the age of 8 weeks.This shows that the food intake of kittens at the end of breastfeeding accounts for a considerable proportion of female cats and kittens.In the total intake of female cats and kittens, the proportion of kitten intake has increased from 5%of breastfeeding to 20%and 30%at 6 or 7 weeks.
Once the kitten is weaned, milk no longer needs milk.With the development of the gastrointestinal tract, the digestion of lactose gradually weakens, and adult cats cannot digest lactose.If you want to give kitten milk.Special lactose -free milk should be provided, and fresh drinks are provided at any time.
Because the physiological function of the kitten is not yet complete, it is recommended to supply high -energy food and feed multiple times.Unlike the puppy, the kitten does not like to be full and should be eaten freely.The kitten weighs 600-1000 grams when weaning, and the male cat is obviously more important than the female cat. This trend will remain lifetime.The peak of energy demand (840 kilograms/kg weight) is about 10 weeks, and it gradually decreases.But in the first six months, it still maintained a relatively high demand due to rapid growth.
The food of the kitten not only has high energy, but also consider increasing certain nutrients.For example: the protein content in kitten diet is higher than that of adult cats (about 10%).The content of calcium and phosphorus should be strictly maintained at a suitable level, and too high or insufficient will cause abnormal skeletal development.It is also important to emphasize that adding calcium additives to balanced diets will cause many problems like feeding unbalanced diets.The role of tauric acid in reproduction and growth has been confirmed that this amino a tanosamic acid should be added to the food of the growth period.
At the age of June, most kittens weighed 75%of the maximum weight; the weight gain was not caused by skeletal development since then.Therefore, after June, kittens are suitable for food to be fed to adult cats.Adult male cats are obviously more important than female cats, and their development time is longer.Because male and female cats are growing slowly between June and December, free food will last for a period of time. By the age of one, the development will reach a stable state.Despite many people's feeding throughout the day, the number of feeding times after June can be reduced.
The training of Burmese cats
The first step of training cat is to make it "come immediately" to its name.The most effective way is that before eating, it is called a cat's name. As long as you understand the name, you can eat it, and naturally remember the pronunciation of your name.
Do not let your cats "recognize" and cultivate your cat into a "lover" cat
Holding it often, playing with it is very important.Cats are originally cautious animals. They usually take an irritating attitude towards strangers who do not know each other, and sometimes escape.Maybe some people think that as long as the relationship between the cat and the owner is intimate, it is very satisfying, but if the people around you are recognized and loves your favorite cat, it is a pleasant thing after all.Cats have a variety of character, so they have been often embraced since childhood, and cats who often play with people will like to be close to others.But don't make cats feel bored, always hold it, don't hold the cat reluctantly.
Sometimes playing with cats, pitching for it, or stroking it while teasing it to communicate with skin exchanges.If the owner lives a single life or few family members, you can often let friends who like cats come home to play, and let cats experience associated with strangers.
