Keeping an Indoor Kitty Content

Keeping an Indoor Kitty Content

Do you keep your feline pal indoors? If so, that’s great! Cats are really both safer and healthier inside. However, you will need to make sure that your kitty is getting enough exercise and stimulation. Fluffy can get bored and restless with nothing to do! In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local vet discusses keeping an indoor cat happy.

Basics

Regardless of whether Fluffy goes outside or not, she has a few basic needs. Make sure your pet is eating good, nutritious food, and keep her litterbox clean. Proper veterinary care is also a must.

Vertical Space

Kitties like to climb to high vantage points, so they can get a good view of their kingdoms. Offer Fluffy some vertical space. Cat towers are great for this! You can also get your kitty some wall-mounted pet furniture.

Window Seat

Just looking out a window with a good view can provide your kitty with hours of entertainment, especially if Fluffy has a good view that includes birds and squirrels. Offer your furball a comfy window seat.

Playtime

Take a few minutes a day to play with Fluffy, even if it just means holding a laser pointer so she can chase that little red dot. This will be good for your cat, both mentally and physically. Plus, this is a great way to relax after a long day!

Kitty Comforts

Small touches can go a long way towards keeping your cat happy and healthy. If you won’t be home before dark, turn a light and a radio on before you leave, so Fluffy isn’t sitting alone in a dark, quiet house. If it’s hot or cold out, keep your climate control running as well.

Toys And Stimulation

Even if your furball absolutely adores birdwatching, she’ll still need some other entertainment. Make sure Fluffy has lots of fun toys. Cats all have their own preferences, so offer your kitty a variety, and see what she likes best.

Purrs

The best way to keep your kitty purring? Pay lots of attention to her! Talk to her, pet her, and let her snuggle up with you. This will all help Fluffy feel loved, safe, and content.
