It’s no secret that kitties love their beauty rest. We know, Fluffy won’t have much of an issue getting comfy on the couch or bed, but if you want to spoil her, give her a few cozy beds of her own. If you can put at least one of these in a spot that gets a lot of sunlight, you’ll get extra purrs!
Fluffy may spend hours each day carefully grooming herself, but that doesn’t mean she couldn’t use a little help. Take time each day to brush your furball. This will remove dead fur and dander, which can help reduce hairballs. Offer praise, treats, and cuddles to activate the purr, or at least help keep your kitty relaxed.
Cats spend a rather exorbitant amount of time sleeping, but when Fluffy is actually awake, she’ll probably be feeling a bit frisky. Get your furball moving with fun daily play sessions. The physical activity is very beneficial for kitties, and the thrill of pouncing and stalking toys also offers Fluffy mental stimulation. Her Furry Majesty may very well reward you by sleeping on top of you and purring!
Every year, there are more and more products made just to please our feline friends. You can spoil Fluffy with an automated laser pointer, robotic mice, kitty fountains, and DVDs made just for her to watch. You can even download some apps for your kitty to play with on your tablet.
We can’t really suggest high-tech toys without mentioning the fact that sometimes Fluffy has more of a taste for simple things. Cardboard boxes, paper grocery bags, even crumpled up balls of paper can all be lots of fun for kitties to play with. And, of course, good old-fashioned catnip is still very popular with our feline pals.
