Help Your Cat Lose Weight

If your cat is beginning to get a little too heavy, help your feline lose that weight this year. 

Get started by talking to your veterinarian. Your veterinarian will advise you on how much to feed your cat. 

Be sure to stick to those portion sizes at each meal. Pretty soon, your cat will reach a healthier weight. 

You could also try increasing your cat’s physical activity level. This will help your cat burn more calories and lose more weight.  

Change Up the Exercise Routine

Exercise is extremely important for your furry friend. Here’s why:

  • It will prevent boredom that leads to behavioral problems.
  • Regular activity will keep excess pounds at bay.
  • Exercise can trim down overweight cats.
  • Physical activity contributes to a healthy heart, lungs, bones, and muscles. 

If your cat’s exercise routine has fallen into a rut, your kitty might lose interest and stop engaging in those activities.  And that can lead to all sorts of problems. 

So, your New Year’s resolutions for cats should include finding new activities for your furry friend. You both will have a blast in the process!

Here are a few ideas:

  • Replace your cat’s old, boring toys with new, exciting toys.
  • Train your cat to walk on a leash in your backyard.
  • Get a cat tree and set it up by a window. 

Take Better Care of Your Cat’s Coat

If you’ve been overlooking the importance of grooming, you can change that this year. Regular grooming sessions will decrease the amount of cat fur you find all over the place. It will also make your cat’s coat look shiny and beautiful.   

The frequency of those grooming sessions depends on your cat’s coat. Do some research to find out what your particular cat requires.

Get Prepared

You never know what’s in store. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared. When preparing your family for disasters, be sure to include your cat in those plans

Determine ahead of time where to take your cat if an emergency forces your family to evacuate. You could choose a pet-friendly hotel, boarding facility, or a friend’s home. It’s smart to come up with multiple options so that you aren’t relying on just one.    

You should also create a disaster kit for your furball. The kit needs to contain cat food, water bottles, cat bowls, and any medicine your pet is taking. 

Spend More Time with Your Fur Baby

We understand that life is busy. Unfortunately, an overbooked calendar can get in the way of spending precious time with your feline. 

No matter how busy you get, prioritize spending time with your cat each day. Your little fur ball needs this bonding time with you.   

Now that you’ve read this blog post, you can decide which of the New Year’s resolutions for cats you will work on. We wish you the best as you strive to meet your cat care goals!
