There’s a very important cat holiday coming up: Respect Your Cat Day is March 28th! Given the chance, Fluffy would probably insist that this entails giving her all sorts of toys and treats, and perhaps adding a catnip garden and stocked fishpond to your yard. However, truly showing your pet respect is a bit more complicated than that. A Clarkesville, GA vet offers some examples of how to respect kitties below.
Kitties are hunters by nature. Their playful antics may be cute, but they are also very much tied into their survival instincts. Offer Fluffy lots of toys, and play with her daily.
Fluffy’s nail care habits are often a source of frustration among her humans. It can be irritating to realize that your furball is shredding your sofa or tearing up your carpet. Don’t get mad at your pet for this! It’s important to understand that scratching is a very natural behavior for kitties. Provide your fuzzy little diva with a suitable ‘pawdicure’ station, such as a scratching post or cat tower.
Kitties can be very cuddly, but they really only offer affection on their own terms. Never try to force attention on a cat. It’s important to let her come to you, especially at first. (Fluffy may ignore you when you’re watching TV, and demand attention when you’re trying to sleep, but that’s just what cats do.)
We recommend that all kitties be fixed. This not only helps prevent unwanted litters, it will benefit your furball healthwise. Fluffy will also be calmer and better behaved after.
Sometimes respecting your cat is as simple as giving her things she likes. Cardboard boxes are pretty high on that list. Some of Fluffy’s other favorite things include catnip, treats, kitty fountains, and cat furniture.
Clean Her Litterbox
Scooping out the litterbox isn’t the most glamorous part of having a cat, but it is necessary. We recommend scooping it out daily, and changing the litter every week or so.
Proper Veterinary Care
Keep up with Fluffy’s veterinary care needs. It’s also important to watch for signs of sickness. Cats can be a bit secretive here, so you may not notice anything right away. Call your vet immediately if you notice anything amiss.
