Keeping Your Cat Happy and Healthy

Did you know that September is Happy, Healthy Cat Month? Of course, as far as we are concerned, every month should be Happy, Healthy Cat Month. That said, this is a great time to talk about your kitty’s care needs. A good diet and a clean litterbox are both crucial, but it takes more than that to really pamper your cat. Read on as a local North Las Vegas, NV vet lists some ways to keep your cute pet content and purring.

Provide Stimulation

Keeping Fluffy properly entertained is very important! Make sure your kitty has lots of fun toys to pounce on. Your furball will also enjoy a comfy window seat with a good view.

Offer Vertical Space

Cats love to climb to high vantage points, so they can properly supervise their human friends. If you get Fluffy a cat tower, she’ll also gain a scratching post, a jungle gym, and another napping spot. You can also get your pet wall-mounted furniture.

Beds, Beds, and More Beds

Cats certainly do take their beauty rest seriously. Fluffy can sleep up to 20 hours a day! Make sure your drowsy pet has lots of comfy napping spots.

Playtime

Did you know that taking time to play with your cat is one of the best things you can do for her? Spend a few minutes a day holding a laser pointer or wand toy for Fluffy to play with. Instant purr!

Veterinary Care

While visiting us may not be Fluffy’s favorite thing to do, proper veterinary care is absolutely crucial to her health and well-being. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule. You’ll also want to bring your feline friend in immediately if she starts to show any signs of illness.

Safety

Taking a few simple precautions can really go a long way towards keeping your furry buddy safe. First, make sure to remove or secure anything in your home that could potentially be dangerous to your kitty. Some things to address are toxic plant, chemicals, medicines, small or sharp objects, wires and cords, and plastic bags or wrappers. We also strongly recommend that cats stay inside. Fluffy will be both safer and healthier as an indoor pet!
