Is your cat happy?
To find if you cat is happy is not difficult at all.
A purr normally tells you when your cat is happy. If she rolls on her back it is also a good sign, she trusts you and is happy in your company.
A happy and relaxed cat will rest with its feet underneath its body, its front paws tucked in and its eyes half closed.
Of course, living with a cat as a pet is much more and your presence matters to them.
It is important to know how to keep her happy and healthy.
An important part of this process is to monitor her unusual behavior.
If your cat behave differently, it's hard to say what's wrong. After all, she can not tell you. If she suddenly stops eating his food, you know there's a reason for that.
It could be a simple upset stomach that will go away in no time and she will regain his pro-plan cat food.
However, it is advisable to monitor these kind of things that are out of the ordinary, so that you can get advice from your veterinarian as soon as possible.
Another thing to consider is to make sure your cat is not bored.
This happens less likely, when your cat can go outside to consume her energy, play with butterflies or run outdoors.
However, if your cat is an indoor cat only, because you want your cat to stay safe she can get bored.
So, it's important to keep your cat entertained and active when you're away.
Here are a few ideas:
Cats love to play in boxes. Whether it’s bounding in and out of them, playing hide and seek, using it as a fort, sled or just generally using it as a play toy, the simple cardboard box is a fun, cheap and easily obtainable item to keep your cat engaged and entertained while you are at work.
Paper bags are also fun. Cats love the sound of paper, it’s ability to change shape and hiding.
There are different types of cat toys. Just keep in mind, cats have preferences too.
Of course, nothing beat the time playing with you, a great way to have a good time both.
If you own a cat, you know how rewarding is playing with your cat.
Another thing to consider is, your cat needs to stay hydrated in your absence. Fill her regular water bowl before you leave and add extra bowls of fresh water around your home. Look into getting a pet water fountain. These aerate the water and their continual flow entices a cat to drink more often.
Make sure your cat have enough food when you are at work or leaving your cat alone. An automatic cat feeder is extremely useful when you are away from home. It is programmable and able to dispense from portion 1:4 cup to 3 cups, at 3 selected meals every day.
So you don't need to worry about your cat, if she eats too much or less when you're not at home.
But your responsibility is to make sure your cat is always happy and healthy.
