The holidays are just around the corner! As you start making lists and picking out gifts for your family and friends, don’t forget to add a few things for your kitty. Fluffy definitely deserves a special something! In this article from Fairfield Animal Hospital, a Cy-Fair vet lists some things that will get your cat’s motor going this holiday season.
We all know that cats love sleeping. In fact, our drowsy feline pals can spend up to 20 hours a day snoozing! Buy or make your pet a comfy bed. It doesn’t matter if Fluffy already has a bed: kitties just can’t have too many napping spots.
Kitties often feel safe and secure in small, enclosed places. A pet tent or tipi would make a great gift for your feline pal! This is a wonderful choice for cats that are naturally shy or nervous.
Cat towers are a great gift for kitties! They not only give Fluffy a good scratching post, they also offer her a jungle gym and another napping spot. Plus, they give her a great vantage point from which she can look down at her human buddies with a smug, all-knowing look.
Watching a kitty play with some catnip can be just as much fun for you as it is for her! You can give Fluffy her favorite plant in the form of a little toy mouse, or try something new and get her some catnip bubbles. You can also get your feline pal a small pot of fresh catnip.
Treats are another way to brighten up your kitty’s day. Just be sure to only offer your furball safe, suitable snacks, like plain, cooked, boneless turkey or some canned tuna in water. Ask your vet for recommendations.
You may be surprised at how many fun new cat toys you can find in stores these days. Treat Fluffy to an automated laser pointer, a robotic mouse, or a mechanical fish. Or, try downloading some games for her to play on your phone or tablet.
Once everyone has finished opening presents, give some of the empty boxes to your furball. You can even make Fluffy a little box castle!
Happy Holidays! Please do not hesitate to contact Fairfield Animal Hospital, your Cy-Fair pet hospital, with all of your kitty’s veterinary care needs.
