This week is Pet Appreciation Week, and while you typically show your cat how much you love them with treats, break out of the mold and try something new. Here are five ways to show your furry pal the love.
#1: Set aside extra time for your cat’s favorite activity
Nothing says “I love you” more than spending time doing what your cat loves most. Whether they enjoy napping, running, or stopping to sniff every tree, bush, and mailbox along your walking route, set aside additional time for your cat’s favorite activities.
#2: Groom your cat
A pampering day at the spa will make your cat look and feel their best. You can schedule an appointment with your local groomer or set up shop in your home with an assortment of brushes, shampoos, and conditioners. When you’re spoiling your cat with this one-on-one time, check them over for lumps, wounds, or parasites to help ensure they stay healthy.
#3: Enrich your cat’s environment
For a house cat, your home can become rather boring. Spice up your cat’s life! Enrich their environment with various items that allow them to express natural behaviors. Add a new scratching post or a lofty climbing tower with a hideaway.
#4: Ditch your cat’s food bowl
One of the best ways to show your cat how much you love them is by tossing out their basic food dish. Many cats are overweight and bored, and feeding them food puzzles can help eliminate these issues. Many food puzzle options, such as rubber Kong toys and LickiMats, can entertain your cat while they work for their meal, preventing boredom and overeating.
#5: Schedule your car’s wellness visit
Keeping your cat happy and healthy for years to come through regular preventive care is an excellent way to appreciate your furry pal.
