7 Purrfect New Year’s Resolutions for People With Cats

January 01, 2021

Happy New Year! Are you starting out 2021 with a kitty at your feet? Why not include Fluffy in your goals for the coming year? In this article, a Bourne, MA vet lists a few things for you to put on your to-do list for 2021.

Offer Good Food

Proper nutrition will go a long way towards keeping your feline buddy healthy. Offer your kitty the best food you can afford. If you’re not sure what to look for, ask your vet for recommendations.

Make Your Home Kitty Friendly

Make your home more fun and more comfortable for Fluffy. Give your furball a comfy window seat by moving a chair or ottoman to a spot where she can look outside. You can also add some pet-safe plants for your kitty to nibble on. The ASPCA has a great list of suggestions here

Get Lots Of Toys

Kitties are predators by nature, so they have very strong natural urges to practice their hunting skills. Make sure your furry pal has lots of catnip mice or little balls to play with! Remember to retrieve your pet’s toys from under the couch regularly.

Play With Fluffy Daily

Toys are great, but interactive play is both more fun and more challenging for Fluffy. Take a few minutes a day to play with your feline friend interactively. Hold a laser pointer for your frisky furball to chase, or dangle a wand toy before her.

Don’t Skip Veterinary Care

Many of our feline patients don’t see us as much as they should. Make sure Fluffy sees her  doctor regularly! Most kitties should come in at least once a year, though you’ll want to ask your vet for specific advice.

Keep The Litterbox Clean

Cats are very clean, and they like their litterboxes that way as well. We recommend scooping your kitty’s box daily, and changing the litter every week.

Pay Attention to Your Pet

Cats are actually very emotional, and they really do get quite attached to their humans. In fact, some of our furry buddies really are little cuddlebugs. Make sure Fluffy feels loved and safe. Talk to her, pet her, and let her snuggle up on your lap if she likes.

As your local Bourne, MA veterinary clinic, we look forward to offering your kitty great veterinary care in 2021 and beyond. Call us anytime!
