6 Special Ways to Pamper Your Cat
As a cat owner, you want to give your four-legged friend the best life possible. You’re ready to go above and beyond to make your cat feel loved, each and every day! If you need a sitter to help watch your cat from time to time, Cats at Home Pet Sitting is here to help. Plus, here’s how to design a cute “cat room,” clean your home while living with a cat, and pick out toys and treats that your cat will love.
Set Up a “Cat Room
Today, lots of cat owners are designing specific rooms to suit the needs of their feline friends, and you can join in on this trend, too! If you have an unused room in your home or even a spacious spare corner, you can designate it as your cat’s space. Start by outfitting it with a comfortable window seat where your cat can watch the world go by, and put up a cat hammock for relaxation, add a climbing tree so that your cat can get exercise and entertainment. If you want to spruce up the walls, you can use wall art tools to create a design that’s truly one-of-a-kind.
When you live with a cat, it can be a little harder to keep your house clean! Establish a daily tidy-up routine and a thorough weekly cleaning routine so that you get rid of any dust, hair, or pet dander that could be lingering in your home. Keep in mind that laminate floors are generally easy to clean! Furthermore, make sure to refresh your cat’s litter boxes frequently.
Invest in Fun Toys
Your cat likes playing with you, and playing solo – so why not surprise them with some new toys? Check out your local pet store for ideas! If your budget is tight, you can even give your cat homemade toys. ASPCA Pet Health Insurance recommends letting your cat play with empty cardboard rolls or tissue boxes with a few treats hidden inside.
Play Time Ideas
Playing silly games with your cat is a great way to pass the time. You can bounce a ping pong ball against your wall and let your cat swipe it, hide toys, and encourage your cat to find them to play “hide and seek,” or even give your cat some crumpled newspaper to play with. Cats often find these simple games engaging, and you’ll get plenty of laughs.
Purchase Tasty Treats
Does your cat have a habit of begging for treats? You don’t want to give in too often – but it doesn’t hurt to spoil them occasionally! Check out the pet store and grocery store for treats with natural ingredients, and feel free to splurge on organic treats if it’s within your budget. You can also make your own treats at home or give your cats a taste of the food you eat. Remember, not all of your food will be safe for cats, but Animal Wellness Magazine states that cats can have small pieces of cooked chicken or turkey.
Yes, cats enjoy massages as much as people do! You can master some basic techniques of cat massage to help your pet calm down if they’re stressed. Petfinder recommends using a soothing tone of voice to allow your cat to relax and slowly stroking down their back repetitively to a count of eight. Monitor your cat’s body language to ensure they’re comfortable.
Your cat may have an independent streak – but they appreciate everything you do for them. When you go the extra mile for their sake, it strengthens your bond! With these tips, you’ll be ready to establish a cat room, maintain a clean home, and even learn how to give cat massages.
