It's finally here! The most wonderful time of the year! That's right its National Cat Lovers Month! Its time to pamper your little balls of fluff and treat them like the kings and queens they are. But how can you be sure you're giving your cats the life they deserve? Easy here are a few ways to make sure your feline best-friends are living the highlife.
Cats are naturally quite hygienic, but that doesn’t mean they don't need help freshening up every now and again. Waterless shampoo and grooming wipes can be especially helpful to keep their coats looking and feeling their best! Adding oil to their food is also a great idea and it even will help keep pesky hairballs at bay!
Keeping your cats bathroom habitat natural is important too! Not all kitty litters are created equal. A Lot of people think “well it's just litter and my cat only goes to the bathroom in it so why does it matter?” It matters because when a cat uses their litter box and starts scratching and burying their waste the air becomes saturated with the dust from the box which is harmful for you and them! But that's not the only issue, your cats feet are also quite sensitive and are the first point of entry for these harmful chemicals! This then leads to things like urinary tract issues, upper respiratory problems and even cancer. The World's Best Cat Litter is all natural and one we highly recommend. It is made up entirely of corn and other plant based materials. Through a special process that compresses corn into concentrated granules this creates a super absorbent clumping litter that traps odors deep inside while also keeping dust to a minimum! Another huge positive is unlike other litters with the World's Best you don’t have to empty your box every week in fact you can wait months. The urine doesn’t just sink to the bottom of the box so it makes it easy to scoop daily and add to it as needed.
Now of course we can’t have pampering without a little bit of fun! Cats are natural hunters so toys that make them work are perfect! Puzzle toys and treat balls are great for this instinctual behavior. Sending them on daily hunting adventures are a great form of exercise and helps them work out any excess energy! Other interactive toys that are fun for you and them are wands and laser pointers. Cat trees are essential for scratching and they love to climb up high, this also keeps them off your furniture! Giving your cat other toys like ones filled with catnip or balls and springs can be exciting for them on their own too! Our own cats have weekly catnip parties with fresh catnip spread all over the floor!
Catnip isn’t only for playing but also has many health benefits too! Any digestion issues and upsets can be solved with a little catnip in your pets food! It can even help with detoxing and inflammation. For a lot of cats catnip is actually quite relaxing which can help alleviate anxiety. Whether in their food or on the floor your cats are sure to enjoy this fun and healthy treat.
With a few extra snuggles and little more fun you're sure to get a few extra purrs out of your cats this season! But why celebrate your cat only once a year? With any of these tips you can make the whole year special so your cats will always feel extra loved!
