For most cat owners, their furry friend is much more than a pet. The loyalty and love a cat brings into your home makes it a member of the family! Because you return the love, it's nice to be able to pamper your cat with some special activities, treats and the very best care. Here are a few ways to pamper your favorite feline!
Cats love catnip -- just be careful not to give them too much, as excessive amounts can hurt a cat's body. A pinch or two as a special treat is purr-fect!
Everybody loves a massage, and your cat is no exception. Gently rub the cat, giving special attention to the head and tummy.
Cats are fastidious by nature, so keep their litter box clean and fresh.
Take your cat to the veterinarian for regular check-ups to keep him healthy, and always get immediate medical attention if the pet is ill.
Cats love toys: rubber mice, balls with bells inside, a roll of yarn, etc. Reward your pal with a new toy occasionally. The natural curiosity of a cat will make the introduction of something new an especially fun treat.
Cats regularly groom themselves, but they'll enjoy being brushed. It's a mini-massage that keeps their coat sleek and snarl-free, and it feels great.
It's a jungle outside with a world full of hazards to cats. That's why many owners choose to keep their cats indoors. You can buy or build an outdoor enclosure so your frisky friend will have some new play space to explore and enjoy the fresh air!
Plant some cat grass in your outdoor cat enclosure. It's available at most pet supply stores and will satisfy your cats urge to graze on plants.
Install a safe indoor perch for your pal near a sunny window. Online retailers and pet stores sell padded perches where pampered pets can relax and enjoy watching the world go by.
Cats are curious and like to roam the house. Leave doors open to bedrooms and bathrooms so the cat can come and go as the mood strikes!
Cats enjoy warmth, so don't turn the furnace down too low in winter when you leave home for the day. Have a couple of fleece blankets for the cat to cuddle with -- they're a perfect cozy comfort at nap time!
Cats can be finicky eaters, so pay attention to the special foods your cat enjoys. It should be healthy, nutritious and in a flavor and formula that the cat prefers.
