Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions for 2019? While it’s always good to strive for personal improvement, the start of a new year is a great time to revisit your goals. It’s also a perfect chance to look at your cat’s care regimen! In this article, a North Phoenix, AZ vet suggests some great resolutions for people with cats.

Choose Good Food

Good nutrition is a cornerstone of your furry pal’s health and well-being. Offer Fluffy the best food you can afford. Treats are fine, but don’t go overboard: if your kitty becomes obese, she could face some serious health problems!

Stay Current With Preventative Care

Fleas, ticks, and other parasites can make your kitty miserably itchy. Keep up with Fluffy’s parasite control regime!

Offer Kitty Luxuries

Sometimes the little things in life really do make a big difference. Give Fluffy some things that were made just for her, like cat towers, scratching posts, or pet tents. A clean litterbox is also a must!

Make Time To Play

Playing is of course fun for Fluffy, but it’s also a great way to keep her fit and active. Spend a few minutes a day holding a laser pointer or wand toy for your furball to chase.

Visit The Vet

Given the choice, Fluffy would probably knock this one right off the list. However, regardless of what your feline pal thinks about her appointments—and the car rides that get her there—she will both look and feel better with proper care.

Keep Kitty Entertained

We know, cats seem to excel at doing absolutely nothing. However, even the laziest furball needs some form of entertainment. Make sure your furry buddy has lots of toys, and give her a comfy window seat.

Curb The Furball’s Adventures

Cats are always safer living indoors, where they are safe from cars, weather, predators, and other hazards. Keep your cute pet safe and sound indoors!

Spend Quality Time

Our feline friends are very emotional, and are happiest when they feel loved. Spend time with your kitty every day, and let her snooze in your lap if she wants. Cats are truly one of life’s greatest treasures!
