New Year’s Resolutions for People With Cats

Happy New Year! If you have a kitty, your pet probably won’t take much notice of the holiday. However, this is a great time to take a look at Fluffy’s care regimen, and make sure your furry buddy is happy and healthy. Why not work your feline friend into your resolutions? A local Pleasanton, CA vet lists some resolutions for people with cats in this article.

Provide Great Basic Care

First things first. Make sure your kitty has good, quality cat food and fresh water at all times. A clean litterbox is also very important. No one likes a dirty bathroom! A good scratching post is also a must. Your cat will also enjoy having some pieces of cat furniture.

Keep Kitty Comfortable

Small touches can go a long way when it comes to keeping your cat purring and content. Make sure your drowsy little pet has lots of comfy beds for all those naps. Scratching posts and kitty furniture will also score you some purrs. Cats feel very secure in small spaces. Make sure Fluffy has plenty of places to retreat to if she feels scared or just wants some alone time.

Offer Entertainment Options

Although Fluffy will probably sleep through a good chunk of 2019, she can’t spend all of her time snoozing. Make sure your pet has enough stimulation and entertainment to keep her occupied when she is actually awake. Toys are a must, of course. Kitties are also very curious, so offer your pet some things to explore, like boxes, pet tents, and tunnels.

Keep Up With Veterinary Care

Many of our feline patients don’t see us as often as they should. We recommend that Fluffy be microchipped, fixed, and kept up to date on her vaccinations, exams, and parasite control. If you notice any signs of illness between appointments, contact your vet right away. Early diagnosis and treatment can make a huge difference! Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.

Spend Quality Time With Fluffy

Cats are pretty independent, but they still need lots of TLC. The more attention you pay to Fluffy, the happier and more interactive she will become. Spend time with your furry friend every day!
