New Year’s Resolutions for Cats

January 1, 2017

Happy New Year! On this special day, many people are making resolutions for the coming year. Cats, however, are traditionally unimpressed by holidays: your kitty will probably just continue with her regularly-scheduled naps during today’s celebrations. If Fluffy was able to set goals, what do you think she would pick? In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, you’ll read some great possibilities.

Sleep Through 2017

There’s no denying the fact that cats are, well, extremely sleepy. Your drowsy feline pal may very well attempt to sleep through the majority of the year, waking up only for food and the occasional play session.

Catch That Red Dot

Kitties may be adorable, charismatic little pets, but Fluffy is really a predator at heart. If you’ve ever used a laser pointer to play with your feline pal, you’ve probably giggled at her hilarious attempts to catch that elusive spot of light. (Note: never shine the light directly into your cat’s eyes.)

Improve Fur Placement Techniques

Do you sometimes find yourself brushing cat fur off your clothes and furniture? Have you ever noticed that Fluffy always manages to leave fur on the things that will show it the most? This may not be a coincidence!

Gain Complete Control Of The Humans

We domesticated cats a very long time ago, perhaps as far back as 12,000 years ago. According to the official story of our friendship with kitties, we made friends with Fluffy after realizing what a great little hunter she was. However, it’s also entirely possible that a cute little furball just walked right into someone’s house and meowed for dinner. Cats have since trained us to feed, cuddle, and play with them on demand. Your furry pal may aim for complete domination!

Avoid The Vet

We know, coming to visit us probably isn’t Fluffy’s favorite ways to spend an afternoon. Your feline friend may bolt for her favorite hiding spot as soon as she sees her carrier, and may even meow in protest during the car ride. However, proper veterinary care is crucial to your kitty’s health and well-being! Make an appointment today!

Please call us here at Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, for all your cat’s veterinary care needs. We will provide your pet with excellent care in 2017 and beyond!
