Like most cat owners, you’ve done everything you can to give your cat the best life possible. You provide high-quality food, a clean litter box, veterinary care, and lots of love and affection. But, does your cat seem truly happy or just kinda bored? Here’s what you need to know about feline enrichment and how it can make a real difference in your cat’s quality of life.
Is your cat eating too fast? Does he throw up after meals? Cat owners everywhere can relate over the weird practices exhibited by our furry friends. While, of course, having to clean up regurgitated, undigested cat food, is not fun for anyone, this little habit can also be dangerous.
Exercise your cat. We know, that seems almost an oxymoron! Cats are naturally energetic, curious creatures, however, when they spend their days indoors, they can get a bit (or a lot) lazy. As you likely know, it is not recommended to let your cat explore the outdoors on their own. Though this is how they would normally keep fit, there are plenty of ways to get your indoor cat the exercise she needs.
Despite the term “scaredy-cat,” cats actually tend to be rather fearless. As with most animals, however, they do have extremely sensitive hearing. Thus, loud noises can frighten them quite easily. We have some helpful tips for keeping your furry feline as calm and care-free as possible.
While keeping kitty indoors is probably for the best, it does come with a few concerns. One of the biggest issues is feline obesity. Veterinarians report that feline obesity is the number one nutritional disorder among domestic cats. Though fat cats are often the butt of jokes in memes, cartoons, and on social media, cat owners need to take it very seriously.
