International Cat Day is August 8th, which is just around the corner. Kitties deserve to be pampered every day, but why not do something extra for Fluffy on her special day? Here, a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan vet offers some suggestions on how to spoil your cat.
It really doesn’t take much to make your home into a luxury kitty castle. Offer Fluffy lots of comfy napping spots to snooze in. Cat furniture, such as cat towers and pet tents, is also great. Your feline pal will also need a suitable nail-care station and, of course, lots of toys.
Proper nutrition will go a long way towards keeping your cute pet healthy. Offer your feline pal nourishing, high-quality food. Don’t overindulge Fluffy, however. Cats have a way of training their humans to feed them on demand. This is one reason so many kitties are overweight! Ask your vet for nutritional advice.
One of the best things about cats is that they really are very fun and entertaining. It’s hard not to smile when watching a playful feline chase that mysterious red dot, or rolling around in glee with a new catnip toy. Take time to play with Fluffy every day. It will be great for both of you!
Keep your kitty’s purrsonal powder room clean by scooping it daily and changing the litter every week. No one likes a dirty bathroom!
Healthcare is just as important for pets as it is for people. Be sure to keep up with Fluffy’s veterinary care needs. Follow your vet’s recommended appointment schedule.
Cats do fine staying home while their humans go off to work to earn money for catnip and kitty litter, but they can get bored and unhappy with nothing to do. A simple way to keep your furball entertained is simply to make sure that she has at least one comfy spot with a good view. Fluffy may also appreciate having a radio on. If you won’t be home before dark, keep a light on as well.
Kitties are happiest when they feel loved, safe, and a little spoiled. Pay attention to Fluffy! Even just giving her a quick ear scratch as you pass her can help keep her motor going.
