5 Ways to Keep Your Cat Happy
August 1, 2016

Do you have a kitty? Fluffy is a wonderful pet: she’s cute, cuddly, clean, and full of adorable habits. Cats are quite easy to care for, which is one of the reasons they are such popular pets. However, in addition to providing your furball with good food and a clean litterbox, there are some small things you can do to keep your kitty happy, comfy, and purring. Read on as a Portland, OR vet discusses how to keep Fluffy content.


We know, Fluffy spends a rather excessive amount of time sleeping. However, even the sleepiest kitty can’t spend all of her time catching Z’s. Make sure your furball has things to occupy herself with when she is actually awake. Give Fluffy lots of fun toys to play with, and offer her a good window view, so she can spy on birds and squirrels. If you really want to pamper your feline friend, get her some DVDs made just for kitties.


Give your kitty a few pieces of furniture she doesn’t have to share. Cat towers are wonderful, but you can also activate the purr by giving Fluffy a pet tent or condo, wall-mounted cat furniture, or even an empty box. Also, offer Fluffy some comfy beds to snuggle up in for all those naps.

Veterinary Care

While visiting the vet may not make Fluffy’s list of favorite activities, your feline friend will be much healthier with regular medical care. Healthy cats are happy cats! Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule. In between appointments, keep up with your kitty’s parasite control products, and stay alert for any signs of potential illness. Call your vet immediately if you notice anything unusual.


Taking time to play with Fluffy every day is one of the best things you can do for her. Fun play sessions will benefit your kitty both physically and mentally. Plus, it will be fun for both you and your kitty!


Kitties are very emotional little furballs, and can form very close bonds with their human servants. Pay attention to your cat. Talk to her, pet her, and just let her cuddle up with you. A cat’s loving purrs are a truly precious gift!
