Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? Don’t forget to pick up something for Fluffy! Your feline buddy is an important part of the family. Read on as a Castle Hills, TX veterinarian lists some holiday gifts for cats.
Toys aren’t just fun for Fluffy. They also benefit her both physically and mentally. While fuzzy mice and squeaky bird toys will always be cute, you may be surprised at how many modern kitty playthings there are. You can get your furball catnip bubbles, mechanical ‘swimming’ fish, robotic mice, or remote-controlled snakes.
If there’s one thing all of our furry patients have in common, it’s a love for snacks. Fluffy can have some plain, canned tuna or chicken in water. Unseasoned, cooked, boneless meat, fish, or poultry is also fine.
As far as Fluffy is concerned, one simply cannot have too many beds. Get your drowsy pet a cozy new bed.
Cat furniture is always an excellent kitty gift. If you don’t have a big budget for pet presents, go the DIY route and make something. You’ll find all sorts of great ideas online.
Birdwatching is very popular with our feline friends. Get Fluffy a comfy window seat, so she can relax and watch birds and squirrels.
Did you know that you can now get DVDs made just for kitties? Fluffy may really enjoy watching programs about birds and squirrels. (Then again, she may just yawn and curl up for a nap. You never know with cats.)
Why not get your cat a little pot of catnip? Fluffy may also enjoy some wheat grass. For extra purrs, plant some wheat grass seeds in a plastic storage tote, and grow your feline pal her own little lawn to look adorable on.
Don’t forget about Fluffy’s box obsession! When everyone has finished opening their presents, offer your furball some of the empty boxes. Your frisky pet may have a blast jumping from box to box!
Always keep Fluffy’s safety in mind. The holidays can present some specific dangers to kitties. Ribbons; tinsel; ornament hooks; pine needles; light strands; and candles are just a few seasonal hazards for people owned by cats to be aware of. Ask your vet for more information.
Happy Holidays! Please contact us, your Castle Hills, TX vet clinic, for all your pet’s veterinary care needs.
