National Cat Day is coming up on October 29th. We’re always happy to celebrate our feline friends and their adorable and charming antics. Fluffy is a wonderful companion: she’s cute, clean, cuddly, and lots of fun. Read on as a Sandstone, MN vet lists a few things you can do to get that motor going in this article.
Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds over the past few years. Fido and Fluffy are also benefiting from these advances. Get your kitty a smart toy, such as a robotic mouse, or download games for her to play on your table.
Our feline buddies have a very curious relationship with this member of the mint family. In fact, cats’ noses have scent receptors that just happen to fit catnip molecules perfectly. An old-fashioned catnip toy is fine, but you can also give Fluffy her favorite herb as a treat or even in bubbles.
You’ve probably noticed that cats are rather tired, overall. Kitties can sleep up to 20 hours a day. To be fair, Fluffy may have a good reason for this. In the wild, cats use tremendous amounts of energy in very short times hunting. Of course, once they’ve scored dinner, they don’t have much to do aside from lounge about and recharge. Then again, the other predators on the planet manage on a mere 12 to 14 hours. Either way, your furry friend will appreciate a new bed. Or ten.
Fortunately for us, kitties aren’t hard to please. Even giving Fluffy a new box to explore and look adorable in can really brighten up her day. If you have kids, have them make a box castle. This can make for adorable pictures!
It’s always really cute watching cats jumping and pouncing on their favorite toys. Take a few minutes to hold a feather toy, laser pointer, or remote control for a mechanical mouse. This will benefit your furry little buddy both mentally and physically.
It’s probably safe to say that our feline pals would prefer any of the other things on this list over coming in to see us. However, proper veterinary care is crucial to Fluffy’s overall health. If your cat is overdue, or hasn’t yet been fixed or microchipped, make an appointment today!
