Do you know that the entire month of September is dedicated to your cat? It’s happy cat month! Cat parents are encouraged to spread awareness about the health and importance of these beautiful companions. The best way to do this is by keeping your cats happy. Below are our helpful tips on how to make your cats happy.

See a Vet at Least Once a Year

One of the ways to make your cat happy is to ensure that he’s always healthy. Consider visiting the vet so a professional doctor can take care of your cat. Remember that cats may develop conditions and illnesses such as hormone problems, weight issues, and genetic disorders. Seeing a vet at least once a year can help prevent diseases and maintain your cat’s well-being. Remember: a healthy cat will always be a happy cat.

Keep Them Engaged With Toys

Do you know that your feline is a natural athlete? That’s right — no Olympian can compete with your cat’s athleticism. You can make your cat happy by constantly challenging them to move around indoors. And the good thing is, you can buy cat toys that will keep your feline moving. Go with toys that move, laser pointers, or anything that will make them want to safely stalk something indoors.

Let Them Hunt

Apart from buying toys for your cats, you can let them practice their inherently curious nature so they won’t get bored indoors. You can let them naturally hunt for their favorite toys or treats around your home. Buy some cat toys or puzzles that can provide mental stimulation. This activity will make them happy and want to stay indoors with you.

Use Catnip

If your cat is more than six months old, consider getting this natural oil to keep them happy. Catnip, when inhaled, produces a natural high for the cat that is temporary and also harmless. You can use this to keep them always stimulated and happy. Catnip comes dried or in a spray form that you can use in their beds. Use this in moderation to keep your cat happy.

Get Another Cat

Like humans, cats like company too. Having a playmate can make your cat happy indoors, so long as they also have the right environment to eat, rest and play. Consider adding one to your family by checking out our adoptions. It’s easy to adopt a pet — you only need to be at least 21 years of age and complete a pre-adoption questionnaire. You will also need to have vaccination records of your cats at home.
