September is Happy Cat Month! Of course, as far as we are concerned, every month should be Happy Cat Month. Kitties are purrfect pets: they’re cute, lovable, and lots of fun. Read on as a local vet lists some ways you can please your feline overlord. Wickenburg and the surrounding communities
Fluffy is always adorable when she’s feeling the effects of her favorite plant. You can now give your furball some catnip bubbles, which is twice the fun for her. (This also makes for some really cute photos.)
Two things kitties love? Boxes and being pampered. Put these two together by making your cat her own little box palace. This is a great kids’ project!
Fluffy is never cuter than when she’s feeling frisky and playful. Take time to hold a laser pointer or string toy for your furry pal. This will benefit your pet physically, mentally, and emotionally.
As far as Fluffy is concerned, there’s just no such thing as too many beds. Store-bought ones are fine, but you can also go the DIY route here. Upcycle a crate, drawer, or hard-shell suitcase by dressing it up with paint or varnish and then adding a soft pillow. Voila! Happy cat.
Our feline buddies aren’t picky about finding napping spots or things to look adorable on, but they do love having things made just for them. Cat towers are probably Fluffy’s number one choice, but they aren’t the only option. You can also make things for your little buddy. For instance, you can upcycle an old stepladder into a cat tower by adding a smooth plank or board to the steps, and then covering the whole thing in carpet or sisal rope.
Kitties are always safer indoors, but they do enjoy having a window with a good view so they can combine their favorite activities: sunbathing, napping, and spying on birds and squirrels. Set up a comfy spot for your furry little spy by a sunny window. Just make sure that your screens close securely.
We may joke about how cold and aloof cats are, but in truth, these little furballs are actually very affectionate and form extremely strong bonds with their humans. Pay lots of attention to your feline friend!
