6 Ways To Keep Your Cat Purring
April 15, 2023

Cats may very well be the purrfect pets. Fluffy is not only super cute, she’s also highly entertaining, lovable, fun, and affectionate. Kitties are also quite independent, which is another plus. Of course, your pet does need more than food, water, and shelter to truly thrive. Fluffy’s mental and emotional health is also important! Here, a Saginaw, MI vet lists some ways to keep your kitty content. 

Kitty Comforts

No surprises here: we all know what Fluffy’s favorite things are. Provide basic kitty musts, such as scratching posts, pet furniture, and catnip. (Your feline overlord will also appreciate the occasional empty box.) 

Veterinary Care

Fluffy may not be thrilled about her appointments, but she will definitely reap the benefits of proper care. Your furball will be healthier, and therefore much happier, if she is up to date on vaccines and parasite control. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule. 


Fluffy’s playful antics have been entertaining us for thousands of years, and they just never stop being cute. Make sure your feline buddy has lots of fun toys to chase, pounce on, and push under the couch. Cats all have their own unique tastes, so try different things. Interactive play is also important. 


Have you ever found yourself sitting in a room with nothing to watch and nothing to do? It isn’t much fun, is it? Making your home more entertaining and stimulating for your furry pal isn’t hard. A comfy window seat that looks out over an interesting view will keep your little buddy entertained for hours. Fluffy may also enjoy watching television shows made for cats.


Our feline pals may be lazy but they can’t sleep all the time. Make your home fun for Fluffy by providing things for her to climb and explore, such as cat towers and tunnels. (Cat walks are optional, but will not go unappreciated.)


Last but not least, pay attention to your furry buddy. Talk to her, pet her, and let her snooze on your lap if she likes. Love is the magic ingredient in any good pet care routine. The more you interact with Fluffy, the more interactive she’ll become. Even aloof kitties appreciate being pampered, played with, and talked to.
