Easy Ways to Spoil Your Cat

Cats have many skills. They are somehow able to sleep in positions we usually associate with knots, take up most of a bed several times their size, and, most importantly, train us to offer food, cuddles, and lap space on demand. Fortunately, you don’t have to break the bank to get Fluffy’s little motor going. A Jacksonville, FL vet lists some very simple ways to pamper your feline overlord below.

Playtime

Fluffy may be cute and cuddly, but she’s actually a ferocious predator at heart. Spend a few minutes playing with your pet every day, so she can let her inner lioness out. This will help keep her in shape physically. Plus, it will give her a healthy outlet for any stress or angst she feels. Playing also offers kitties beneficial mental stimulation. Cats have to focus to nail those complicated wiggle/run/jump/pounce/roll combinations. That concentration is great for your furry pal’s mind!

Boxes

There are many things we may never entirely sort out about kitties. Fluffy’s box obsession is definitely on that list. It doesn’t matter what size the box is, or even what size the cat is. Regardless, it’s safe to say that if you put an empty box down near your furball, it probably won’t stay empty for long.

Window Seats

Kitties are very nosy, and they love to watch what’s going out outside their home. Make your furry little voyeur a comfy window seat with a good view. Fluffy may spend hours sunbathing, watching birds and squirrels, and daydreaming about being a predator.

Conversation

Our feline pals may have tried very hard to make us think that they are cold-hearted killers, but that really isn’t accurate. Fluffy is actually quite emotional, and forms very close bonds with her humans. Talking to your pet is a great way to make her feel loved. Some kitties even ‘talk’ back!

Beds

Did you know that cats can spend up to 20 hours a day sleeping? That’s pretty impressive! Make sure your drowsy furball always has plenty of comfy beds to doze off on.

Pet-Safe Plants

Although Fluffy is always safer indoors, she will enjoy having some pet-safe plants to sniff and nibble on. Check the ASPCA site here for suggestions.
