6 Cute Ways to Keep Your Cat Purring in 2018

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe, but we are leaving 2017 behind and moving on into 2018. For the next few days, you may be hearing and reading quite a few predictions for the new year. We’ll leave most of these forecasts to others, but we can offer a few guesses on what will keep Fluffy’s little motor going in the coming months. In this article, a Moorpark, CA vet lists some great ways to keep your pet content this year.

Kitty Garden

Cats are both safer and healthier living indoors, so we always advise keeping kitties inside. However, there’s no reason that Fluffy can’t enjoy a taste of nature. Set out some pet-safe plants for your furball to nibble on and hide behind. (Tip: check the ASPCA site for suggestions.)


Cats are absolutely adorable when they are feeling frisky. It’s hard not to smile when Fluffy is pouncing on a fuzzy mouse toy, or chasing that pesky dot from a laser pointer. Offer your playful pet plenty of fun toys, and take time to play with her every day.


It’s probably safe to say that Fluffy will sleep through a good chunk of the new year. Kitties certainly are drowsy! Make sure that your furry pal has lots of comfy beds to choose from.


Does your pet have some kitty furniture, such as a cat tower or pet tent? If not, get your feline friend a few things of her own this year. Cat towers are great, as they offer your furball a spot to nap and relax, a manicure station, and a jungle gym, all in one. Fluffy may also appreciate a pet tent or tipi.

Window Seat

Birdwatching is very popular with cats. Make sure Fluffy has at least one comfy window seat with a good view. Your pet may spend hours just sunbathing and watching local wildlife!


Cats are very emotional, and are happiest when they feel loved. Pay lots of attention to your feline buddy in the coming months. Pet your cat, talk to her, and play with her daily. The more you interact with your kitty, the more interactive she’ll become!
