Cats are adorable. Did you know, for instance, that your cat can sense when you’re sick? Yes! That’s why she’ll hover around and curl up next to you for hours hoping that you’ll get better! More than that, it doesn’t take a lot of effort to keep your feline friend happy. Here’s what you should do.

Get Your Cat a Heated Bed

Your favorite pet needs a comfortable place to sleep, and it doesn’t get better than a heated bed.  See, cats love to curl when sleeping to retain optimal body heat. A heated bed helps your animal achieve this goal, especially if it is an aging, sick or lone cat. On top of that, a heated bed helps keep your animal warm and relaxed enabling it to fall asleep faster. On that note, visit Pet Nap to view a variety of heated beds and other accessories you can get for your cat.

Play with Your Cat

Playtime is an integral part of a cat’s life. So create time to play with your feline every day. You can also get interactive toys that look like prey. Get scratchers to enable your pet to sharpen claws. Throw things around and let your animal catch them.

The Scoop

Be sure to scoop your cat’s litter box once or twice every day. The idea is to help you uncover any potential problems your pet may be having. You can, for example, tell if your cat is suffering from urinary tract infection by smelling the urine. Be sure get in touch with your veterinarian as soon as you can if you notice a change in your cat’s litter box behavior.

Control Odor

The last thing that you want in your living space is a smelly cat. So, use scented litters to keep odor in check. Remember, cats don’t like deodorizers air fresheners close to their litter box. Besides, scooping every day helps keep the smell at bay. Consider placing a small layer of baking soda at the bottom of the litter box to drive away the smell.

Provide a Room with a View

Cats love to watch the outdoors. So, make sure you remove curtains from your front room window to allow your pet to watch birds and squirrels. You can even hand a feeder on the outside to attract birds, and your cat will love you for it.

Keep your Kittens Safe

Of course, you want your cat to live as long as possible, right? So, start to take care of your pet from the tender age. A free-roaming cat lives for about three years in comparison to 15 to 18 years of an indoor-only cat. Monitor the movement of your kittens and don’t let them out often. The idea is to encourage them to learn how to stay indoors from an early age.

The Bottom Line

It is not hard to keep your cat happy and contented. Place empty cardboard boxes in your house so that your feline can explore and discover hidden treats. Get pet insurance – you will need it to cover medical expenses when your cat gets sick.
