Tips for taking care of a cat: Never let them outside because they could be run over by a vehicle. Keep them in a nice, cool place with a bed so they can take naps. Keep a bowl of cool water for them. Give them treats that are made especially for cats. Give them plenty of toys to play with and play with them. If you leave them alone, always lave the TV on-they do like to watch it.
