Small Animals and Cats

Wednesday, March 9, 2016

CATGERBILIs it possible for a cat to get along with a small animal such as a gerbil, hamster or rabbits? It is but you have to take all of the proper precautions. Keep the gerbil or hamster out of reach of your cat when you’re not at home. You can introduce the two if you are watch them closely. Remember rodents are prey for cats. If you introduce your kitten early on and keep a close eye on them, it is possible that your cat will leave the small animals alone. Keep your cat occupied with plenty of cat toys, cat treats and attention.

I once had a rabbit and when I introduced my kitten, Molly (who’s now almost 17) the two got along very well. In fact, my rabbit Max chased Molly all over the living room. All cats are different. I would suggest introducing a kitten to a small animal rather than a full grown cat. Keep your small animals in their cages and in a place that’s  not accessible to your cat when you’re not home.
