Keeping your cat's nails trimmed are key to keeping him healthy. Never use ordinary scissors to trim your cat's nails; they may injure the cat. Use trimmers that are specifically designed for cats. Hold the paw firmly and squeeze the paw at the base of the nail. This will cause the nail to protrude. Cut off the tips of the nail with a single stroke, being careful to stop short of the quick, the blood vessel inside the nail. (Cutting into the quick will hurt your cat and cause some bleeding.) Follow up with the nail file, filing toward the tip to smooth the cut edge.
As for food, Purina recommends the following daily feeding schedule:
Cat Size Weight Amount to Feed
Small 5 to 9 lbs. 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Large 10 to 14 lbs. 1/2 to 1 cup
