National Cat Day

Do you have a kitty? If so, mark your calendar: National Cat Day is coming up October 29th! While we think that our feline pals should be spoiled all year long, this is a great chance to give your pet some extra TLC. In this article, a North Las Vegas, NV vet offers tips on how to pamper Fluffy on her special day.


One surefire way to brighten up your kitty’s day is to bring home a new toy for her to pounce on. While catnip mice and small balls will always be popular, there are also lots of fun new toys you can get for Fluffy. Some good options include catnip bubbles, automated laser pointers, and robotic mice.


Cats can be quite finicky, but most of them do have a few favorite treats. Store-bought kitty snacks are fine, of course. You can also offer Fluffy plain tuna, salmon, or chicken in water; cooked, boneless fish, chicken, or meat; cat milk; or some sodium-free chicken broth.


We all know what Fluffy’s favorite pastime is: sleeping! Get your drowsy pet a new bed to look adorable in.


While cats certainly do enjoy being pampered, they don’t necessarily have very expensive taste. In fact, for some kitties, a plain cardboard box is a little slice of heaven!

Pet-Friendly Plants

We recommend that all kitties live indoors. Cats that are allowed outside face some very serious hazards, such as cars, weather, and wild animals. However, there’s no reason your furry friend can’t get a little taste of nature. Get Fluffy a small pot of catnip or cat grass.


Does your kitty have some furniture just for herself? If so, that’s great! If not, this would be a wonderful way to activate Fluffy’s purr. You don’t have to break the bank buying pet furniture: there are lots of great DIY options. Look online for ideas and instructions.


Kitties may have a reputation for being aloof, but these charismatic little furballs can be quite loving and affectionate. Spend some time with your cat. Talk to Fluffy, brush her, play with her, and/or let her snuggle up on your lap for yet another nap. Time spent with cats is never wasted!
