Reducing your Tomcat’s Natural Behaviour
Because of the above mentioned factors, most owners want to tame their tomcats. Here are some recommendations:
- Put a collar on (with bell). This will distract your cat’s goal to stalk and fight with other cats as well as to surprise them. It will discourage your cat to engage in aggressive activities.
- Use enzymatic solution to clean territorial markings. This neutralizer will mask the underlying odour marked by the tomcat for his territory thus will lessen the spraying on vertical surfaces. Some people use baking soda, vinegar, lemon and hydrogen peroxide for this purpose. Read more

As is the case with all other felines, Ragdoll cats and kittens are susceptible to fleas with the most common type known as Ctenocephalides felis. Adult cat fleas are red-brown in colour while flea droppings are tiny black particles.
To understand the flea you first must understand where they come from. Fleas undergo a lifecycle known as metamorphosis, where fours stages take place – Eggs, Larvae (3 Larvae stages), Pupa and finally the Adult stage. As shown on the illustration the adult flea lays between 25-40 eggs on your pet each day, which then fall off into the environment (carpet, rugs etc) to hatch. Hatching takes place within 2-5 days where the 3 stages of larvae begins and after approx 7-18 days the flea larvae pupate. It takes approx another 7-10 days for it to develop into an adult flea, though dependent on environmental conditions (optimum hatching temperatures are between 21 & 32 deg C) it may be some time before the Adult emerges from its protective cocoon. The cocoon itself is a composition of larvae saliva and debris (lint, dust, hair etc).
The male adult flea is between 2-3mm long, while the female can be as big as 4 mm long. The eggs produced by the adults are approx 0.5mm in length and during the 3 stages of larvae the sizes range from 1-2mm, 2-3mm and 3-5mm in length. Pupae are approx 2-4 in length. Read more
Cat Worm Facts and Treatments
It is very difficult to keep your cat from contracting any of the variety of worms that they are apt to contract. Just drinking his/her Mother’s milk can infect even a newborn kitten. Weakened immune systems can also be the cause of worms in kittens and cats that have been ill. Sometimes, keeping your pet indoors and clean does not always keep them worm free.
A hygienic environment does help keep worms at a minimum as worms thrive on fecal matter and body fluids often found outdoors in the yard or even from contaminated soil. But is it difficult to keep your cat inside the house all the time when the sunshine and warm breeze of the spring and summer beckon to them. Regular checking for worms and recognizing the different types can give you a head start in the treatment of worms if they develop. Read more
