Hug Your Cat Day is coming up on June 4th. Kitties deserve to be hugged: they keep us smiling, and just brighten up our lives and homes with their adorable faces and silly, playful antics. That said, Fluffy may enjoy being cuddled, but that isn’t the only way to get that motor going. An Apple Valley, MN veterinarian lists some ways to please your feline overlord below.
Giving Fluffy catnip can be almost as fun for you as it is for her. Kitties are never more adorable than when they’re enjoying the euphoric effects of their favorite plant!
Speaking of toys, this is another cute and fun way to brighten up your feline pal’s day a bit and just make her feel loved. You can find some pretty adorable cat toys online these days, from remote-controlled mice to smart toys that react to Fluffy’s movements. You can also go the DIY route and make something: there are lots of ideas online.
Toys are great, but playtime is much more fun for Fluffy when you’re holding a toy with her. Not being able to know what her ‘prey’ will do next really activates and stimulates her inner lion.
Our feline overlords love being pampered, but fortunately for us, they don’t have expensive tastes. One of Fluffy’s favorite things ever is getting a new box to conquer. If you have kids, have them make your kitty a box castle.
Kitties don’t mind ‘borrowing’ (or completely taking over) our furniture, but it’s good for them to have some things that were made just for them. Get Fluffy a cat tower or a new scratching post or board. There are also great DIY options for this.
Your furry pal may take time out of her busy napping schedule to groom herself every day. However, she’ll still enjoy and benefit from a gentle brushing.
You can also offer your furry friend some yummy snacks. Just stick with safe options, such as plain boneless chicken pieces or a bit of canned tuna.
At the end of the day, the best way to make Fluffy feel loved is to pay attention to her. Carve out some quality time with your furball!Do you have questions about caring for your cat? Contact us, your Apple Valley, MN animal clinic, anytime.
