Almost every one of us love cats for their silent, calm and loving nature. You might have come across or know many people who have cats as pets. They are very domestic animals and can be easily adopted by local or foreign shelters. Although adopting them can be a very beautiful idea, along with it comes the responsibility of proper care for their health and wellbeing. It is very important for cat owners to look out for the health and wellbeing of their cats. Cat owners should feed the cats well, take them for regular veterinary check-ups, groom and maintain their hygiene and do many more in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of their cats. It is also important for cat owners to ensure kind treatment and affection towards their pets.

Although some cat owners may intentionally neglect their cat care responsibilities, some might genuinely have no idea about proper cat care. Though they might adequately feed and groom them, they might be lacking in showing affection or doing regular veterinary check-ups for their cats. Therefore, it is important for cat owners or people who are planning on adopting cats to be well acquainted with cat care in order to ensure the health and wellbeing of their pets. With this diploma in essential cat and kitten care – level 3, you will do just that by learning about the essentials of cat and kitten care. You will be trained on the essentials of cat care from choosing your cat to understanding their behaviours through this diploma. This diploma will also walk you through cat communication, grooming, feeding, litter box matter and cat health and wellbeing. This diploma will mainly benefit cat owners and cat care professionals, however, job seekers and others willing to learn on the essentials of cat care might also benefit through this diploma.
