But the Ukrainian Levkoy has very delicate skin, it must be wiped with warm water or special wipes, and sometimes washed with shampoo to remove excess discharge, otherwise the cat will become sticky and smell unpleasant. But you should not bathe your pet too often.
If the skin darkens or begins to peel off, it must be moisturized with lotion to prevent drying out. If possible, it is advisable to install a humidifier in the room.
Sunbathing is useful for cats, but left-handed people should not be allowed to be under the open sun for a long time – burns may appear on delicate skin.
In the cold season, they need additional warmth – for example, they can be dressed in special sweaters or overalls.
Representatives of this breed do not have eyelashes that would protect the eyes, which is why they must be washed periodically with clean water or weak tea leaves.
In food, Levkoy are picky and have a good appetite, so they can overeat, which often leads to digestive problems. To avoid them, you need to carefully monitor the diet of the pet.
