How to catch and hold cats to ensure safety.
The cat’s claws are very powerful. If the owner is not careful when catching and holding the cat, the cat may be scratched by the cat, and the cat’s scratching may also cause the cat to be injured. How to ensure safety when catching and holding cats?
Generally, the correct method is to hold the skin on the back of the cat’s neck with one hand, and hold the back or buttocks of the cat with the other hand, so that most of the cat’s weight rests on the hand that supports the buttocks. Or place one hand under the cat’s chest and gently grasp the cat’s front legs. Before catching a cat, if you can get acquainted with the cat for a while, such as patting the cat’s forehead and stroking the cat’s back; after catching the cat, immediately stroke the cat’s head with your hand and make it quiet as soon as possible. It’s safer.
For newly arrived cats or wild cats, it is best for two people to cooperate with each other, that is, one person first grasps the skin of the cat’s neck and back, and the other person uses both hands to grasp the cat’s forelimbs and hind limbs to avoid scratching people. When catching a cat, never scratch the ears, tail or limbs. If you scratch your ears, it is easy to fracture your cat’s ears and cause disability. Scratching limbs can easily be bitten or scratched by cats. The cat’s tail is very sensitive. Pulling the tail or stomping on the cat’s tail can easily cause the cat to attack. Of course, if the cat has become a companion with the owner, just hold it in his arms.
