December is recognized as National Cat Lovers Month. This month-long festival is the ideal opportunity to take it easy with your pets, admire your cat more, and explore charitable opportunities for cats in need.
During National Cat Lover’s Month, we have the chance to celebrate our feline friends‘ beauty and intelligence. Cats are among the most popular pets for a variety of reasons, including the fact that cats are not just quiet, independent, and typically require less upkeep than other pets, but they also make wonderful friends.
It has been demonstrated that cats can sense when you need comfort and lower levels of stress and anxiety. Felines offer a lifetime of love and affection, and people develop strong, intimate bonds with them. Read on as we go through some of our favorite ways to celebrate National Cat Lovers Month and how you may have as many purring cats in your life as you can.
Make an Appointment for a Checkup
Use the month of December as a reminder to take your cat in for his or her routine wellness examination because frequent cat preventative care is crucial for keeping your feline happy and in a healthy condition. Even though this check-up doesn’t feel like a celebration to either your cat or you. You’ll still be thankful for the gift of good health. Also, it can sound rather strange but some cats enjoy visiting the vet! Generally speaking, cats don’t see the veterinarian as frequently as dogs, so when they do, it can be a pleasant change of scenery.
Buy Some Toys for Your Cat:
Getting your cat a new toy this month is one of the easiest ways to show them you care. A new toy will undoubtedly increase the curiosity of your cat as they are easily bored. A few new cat toys will also guarantee that each cat in your home has a toy of its own if you have multiple cats.
You can consider putting some of your cat’s old toys away in a closet or storage if you’re concerned about a cat-toy mess in your house. You can switch out the new toys for the old ones when your cat gets bored of using the new ones because they will then seem brand-new to your cat. You should also check for choking hazards and broken toys while you’re at it and throw any broken or torn toys out.
Pamper Your Cat More:
During this special month, pamper your cat more to strengthen your relationship with it. Comb their fur, brush their teeth, and trim their nails. By using these hygienic aids, you can improve your cat’s appearance, spend quality time with your pet, and examine your cat for lumps, bumps, and other abnormalities. Make sure to schedule a vet visit as soon as you notice any potential problems so they can be examined and keep your cat safe.
Throw a Party for Your Cat:
Although cats are not considered to be party animals, you can still celebrate their month by organizing any activities that you know your cat loves it. You can start by inviting your friends and family. Just make sure no other strange cats are invited. Cats don’t usually enjoy making new pals, unlike many canines. A fight might break out if other cats are invited. Click pictures with your cat and most importantly make memories together. Give them your time and prepare their favorite snacks for them to enjoy.
Adopting More Cats:
If you already have a cat, take advantage of this month to treat yourself to some quality time with your feline friend. It can be difficult to find time to spend with the people you love in your daily busy life, make this time extra special for yourself and your cat.
Sadly, there are still too many cats, and many of them are unable to find their forever homes. Around 850,000 cats are put to death every year, which is a higher number than dogs. We encourage you to adopt a stray cat from your neighborhood animal shelter during this National Cat Lover’s Month. By giving a cute cat its ideal home, you can be a hero and save a life.
