October 29th has officially gone to the kitties: it’s Spoil Your Cat Day! We know, if it were up to Fluffy every day would be Spoil Your Cat Day. We love seeing our patients getting pampered! However, while Fluffy would probably love a castle with stocked moats and aviaries, you don’t have to go all-out to please your feline overlord. A Louisville, KY vet offers some advice on spoiling Fluffy in this article.
Cats are extra cute when they are hard at play. All of that pouncing and jumping isn’t just fun for kitties, however. Playing keeps Fluffy active and entertained, and provides enrichment and stimulation. Offer your cute pet a new plaything.
Kitties can be finicky, but most of them do have a few favorite snacks. Fluffy can have plain, cooked meat, fish, or poultry, as long as the skin, bones, and fat have been removed. Other possible options? Some sliced deli meat, canned fish or meat, or cooked egg. Ask your vet for more information.
You can’t go wrong with tried-and-true classics, and when it comes to spoiling cats, nothing fits that description better than catnip. You can go old-school and give Fluffy a catnip mouse, but you can also try something new and offer her some catnip bubbles to chase. (Tip: get your camera ready beforehand.)
We will never stop recommending that kitties stay inside. Howver, Fluffy really does enjoy a good view. Make your cat a comfy window seat, where she can watch birds and squirrels.
Did you know that there are games made just for Fluffy? This is a purrfect way to get a little more mileage out of a tablet or smartphone after you’ve upgraded.
Is your feline friend still very active and fearless? Fluffy may enjoy being walked on a leash. Of course, you’ll need to take some time training her.
Fluffy really does benefit from having things to suit her needs. Cat towers, for instance, will give your furry pall a scratching post, napping spot, and vantage point. Your kitty may also enjoy a kitty condo or an exercise wheel.
Fluffy is very emotional, and forms extremely strong bonds with her humans. Pay some extra attention to your feline buddy!
