What Your Cat Needs to Be Happy and Healthy
Indoor cats bring a lot of joy to their owners. Naturally, we want to return the favor and keep them happy as well as healthy. One way to do this is to provide them with items like cat trees and toys to prevent boredom and give them the opportunity for exercise. Clawz modern cat trees are ideal ways to provide your indoor feline with the chance to work its natural hunting instincts by providing a place for them to hide, prowl, and scout. When you understand feline instincts, behaviors, and needs, you can give them what’s necessary to keep them happy and healthy.
Keep That Water Bowl Fresh and Full
While this may not be a pleasant thought, the reality is in the wild, cats get most of their hydration from consuming live prey. Indoor cats don’t have this luxury and need to have a constant supply of fresh water. What most cat owners don’t know is that if the water isn’t fresh, kitty isn’t having it! Giving your cat ample opportunity to quench their thirst helps keep them healthy and lessens the risk of urinary problems.
Cats Are Happy to Have Their Own Space Like a Cat Tree or Condo
Cats don’t need an entire room of their own, of course, although they would likely take it if offered. They will be equally happy with a cat tree or condo that gives them a place to play or curl up for a nap. It’s especially ideal if you also have a dog. Your cat may tolerate a canine companion or even bond with them. However, there are times when cats want to chill, and nothing ruins that like an overzealous dog. Make your cat happy by giving it a cat condo for when it needs a getaway retreat!
Cats Are Happy When They Feel Like Hunters and Hide in Cat Trees
Indoor cats who don’t have an outlet for their hunting drive can sometimes get into trouble. The lack of hunting stimulus causes them to become bored. Destructive behavior doesn’t mean a cat is bad; it means they couldn’t find anything else to do with that energy. Numerous cat toys are well-designed to make a cat feel like the hunter they were born to be.
All an indoor cat needs is something inside to keep them stimulated like they are when hunting. Cat trees, condos, and toys accomplish this and prevent boredom. They can climb all day long on a cat tree and be ready to relax on your lap when you come home. It’s less likely you’ll find them climbing your curtains to get a better view for “hunting.”
Cats Like to Be Clean and Well-Groomed
Cats are clean animals. Keeping their litter box clean is an essential requirement to keeping them happy and healthy. They are also meticulous self-groomers. Even so, most cats still like to be brushed by their human owners. It’s a bonding experience that revs up their purring motor. Cats groom each other as social behavior, so giving yours an occasional brushing is something they appreciate. And pitching in with their grooming efforts helps prevent hairballs and matted fur.
Maintaining a Healthy Weight for Your Cat By Exercising with Cat Trees
Indoor cats can be susceptible to gaining weight. An overweight cat may appear to be happy at feeding time, but it’s not a healthy state for them. Start by feeding them well-balanced quality cat food. Once a cat puts on weight, it isn’t easy to reduce it. When you notice weight gain, consider switching to lower-calorie cat food.
Another way to keep your kitty from putting on pounds is to give them opportunities to exercise. Like some humans, cats sometimes need a little motivation to get moving. Motivation might be attention from you, so engaging them in play is more than just fun and games. It elevates their heart rate and helps them burn extra calories.
Providing them with toys also gets them moving until they get bored. One way to keep them engaged and exercising is to get them a Clawz Cat Condo. Our products are designed so you can change out toys and replace used scratch pads. Cats get the exercise they need and have fun darting in and out of the inner chambers of their happy little home.
Feeling the Love Keeps a Cat Happy
A seemingly aloof kitty wants your love and attention, even if it is on its terms. Spending some time petting a cat is a relaxing pastime. Studies have shown that spending time with a pet reduces blood pressure, so as a bonus, it helps keep you happy and healthy as well!
