New Year’s Resolutions for People With Kitties

It’s hard to believe, but 2017 has officially arrived! If you have a cat, there’s a good chance that your four-legged friend slept right through the celebrations as the ball dropped last night. (Actually, Fluffy may very well sleep through the majority of the new year, but that’s beside the point.) If you’re making resolutions this year, why not include your pet? In this article, a Colorado Springs, CO vet lists some great resolutions for people owned by cats.

Provide Comfy Spots

If we know anything about kitties, it’s that they really love sleeping. Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement: napping is probably Fluffy’s favorite thing ever. Cats can spend up to 20 hours a day snoozing! Make sure your drowsy pet has plenty of comfy beds and napping spots to doze in.

Take Fluffy To The Vet

We know, cats aren’t generally very enthusiastic about coming to see us. Even so, proper veterinary care is very important to Fluffy’s health and well-being. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.

Get New Purrniture

Cats don’t mind snoozing on our couches, beds, or recliners, but they definitely love having things they don’t have to share with their human servants. Get your furball a kitty tower or pet tent this year. Beds are also very popular with our feline pals. Of course, many furballs also love boxes: bring home an empty one for your furry buddy now and then.

Offer Fun Toys

Cats can be super frisky! Fluffy is definitely adorable when she is attacking her toys and pretending to be a vicious hunter. Give your kitty lots of fun toys to smack around and bat under the couch. It’s also important to play with your pet regularly. Fun play sessions will benefit your feline friend both physically and mentally.

Activate The Purr

Cats have many adorable traits that make them wonderful pets. The purr, however, is one of the cutest. To keep your furry pal happy and comfy, pay lots of attention to her. Let Fluffy curl up on your lap sometimes, and spoil her with fun toys and good food. Kitty purrs and cuddles are truly precious!
