New Year’s Resolutions Inspired By Cats

January 1, 2019

Happy New Year! As we bid farewell to 2018 and say hello to 2019, many of us are setting personal goals. As it turns out, our feline pals can be quite helpful with this! In this article from Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas, a local veterinarian lists some great resolutions we can borrow from our feline friends.

Get Lots of Rest

It probably won’t be much of a surprise to see that getting lots of sleep makes the top of the list here. Actually, Fluffy will probably sleep through a good amount of 2019!

Speak Your Mind

Kitties are small, but they have very distinctive purrsonalities. Whether your furball is timid and shy or bold and friendly, your pet will find a way to clearly communicate what she likes and dislikes. (Boxes: yes. Belly rubs: no.)

Be Yourself

Your kitty isn’t worried about whether she looks silly when she naps in pretzel-like positions, or does that hilarious butt-wiggle kitties do before they pounce. Don’t be afraid to be yourself!

Form Good Grooming Habits

Cats can spend hour each day carefully grooming themselves, and making sure that their coats are soft and clean. While your personal routine doesn’t have to take that long, it is worth the effort to make sure you look your best.

Soak Up Some Sun

Have you ever found your feline buddy sprawled out in a sunbeam? We’re guessing the answer to that question is yes. Kitties love sunbathing! Get outdoors this year. (One recommendation that isn’t from Fluffy: don’t forget the sunscreen.)


While batting at a catnip mouse probably isn’t your idea of a good time, it’s important to do things that you enjoy. Have some fun in 2019!


Fluffy’s idea of exploring may mean checking out that box you brought home or exploring a closet that’s usually closed. You can venture a bit further than that, so why not go somewhere new this year?

Show Your Love

Kitties can be heartmeltingly adorable, and they are at their cutest when they are snuggled up with us, purring. Show your loved ones that you care for them!

Happy New Year from all of us here at Arapahoe Animal Hospital, your Boulder, CO vet, serving Louisville and surrounding areas. We look forward to offering your cat great veterinary care in 2019 and beyond.
