Indoor Cat Care

Do you keep your kitty indoors? Although cats love going outside, and participating in fun kitty activities like making paw art on your car and bringing ‘gifts’ on your doorstep, your feline buddy really will be healthier staying indoors. Read on as a local Bee Cave, TX vet discusses keeping an inside cat happy.

Entertainment

Cats may love doing as little as possible, but they do need some form of entertainment. Make sure that Fluffy has lots of fun toys to play with. It’s also important for you to take time to play with your furry pal. This is one of the best parts of having a cat! Play sessions will keep Fluffy active, provide her with mental stimulation, help her burn off excess energy, and strengthen the bond between you. Plus, they’re fun for both you and your kitty!

Veterinary Care

While indoor cats may not need to see us as often as outdoor kitties, they do still need regular veterinary care to stay healthy. Fluffy should be microchipped, spayed or neutered, and kept current on vaccinations and parasite control. Follow your vet’s recommendations for appointments.

Places To Explore

Our feline pals love to investigate things, especially small spaces. Keep things fun and fresh for Fluffy by offering her pet tents and tipis. Cardboard boxes and paper bags are also very popular with kitties!

Purrniture

Offer Fluffy some pieces of furniture that encourages her to jump and climb. Cat towers are great for this! Your furball may also enjoy a fun cat activity center or pet tunnels. Scratching posts and beds are also musts.

Catproofing

Never underestimate Fluffy’s ability to get into trouble. Take steps to make your home safe for your frisky pet. Remove or secure potential hazards, such as toxic plants, chemicals, small or sharp objects, plastic bags and wrappers, wires and cords, and medicine. Ask your vet for more information.

Comforts

Keep your kitty’s comfort in mind. If you’ll be gone all day, turn a light on, and leave a TV or radio playing for her. Make sure to leave your climate control running as well.

Purrs and Cuddles

Spend time with your kitty every day. Fluffy needs to feel loved to really be happy. Time spent with cats is never wasted.
