Great Ways to Pamper Your Kitty on National Cat Day

October 15 2016

Did you know that October 29th is National Cat Day? Fluffy would probably insist that every day is National Cat Day, but we double-checked. Read on as a Grayson, GA vet offers some great ideas for making your feline friend happy on her special day.


Toys are wonderful for cats. For one thing, they get Fluffy off the couch and moving. Even just a few minutes of pouncing and jumping is great for your pet’s health! They also provide kitties with beneficial mental stimulation. Get your furball some fun new toys to play with.


Cats certainly make themselves at home on our couches and sofas, but it’s great for them to have some things made just for them. Cat towers help keep Fluffy active by promoting jumping and climbing, and also provide her with a scratching post, high vantage point, and yet one more napping spot. Pet tents and condos are also helpful. Many kitties feel safe in small, enclosed spaces, so timid cats will particularly benefit from these hidey-holes. Buy or make your furball something new!

Special Treat

While you do need to be careful with what you feed Fluffy, there’s no reason she can’t enjoy a special snack now and then. Give your kitty a can of plain tuna, salmon, or chicken in water. You can also offer her some unseasoned, cooked boneless meat, fish, or poultry.

Veterinary Care

We know, visiting us probably wouldn’t make Fluffy’s list of fun ways to spend the day. However, your furball will look and feel much better with regular veterinary care! Call today to schedule your kitty’s next appointment.

Window Seat

Our feline friends love birdwatching. Make Fluffy a cozy window seat, so she can relax, sunbathe, and watch birds and squirrels. Your furry buddy may spend hours in her new favorite spot!


Take some cute pictures of your adorable pet. Try downloading a pet camera app: many of them have sound effects that can help catch Fluffy’s attention.

Quality Time

Take time to play with Fluffy, and pay attention to her. Your feline friend will know you’ve done something just to make her happy, and will repay you with purrs and cuddles. It will be fun for you, too!
