Cats aren't known for their sense of adventure. By nature they are sleepers. They can doze for up to 18 hours a day. But regular activity and adventure is a must to keep your cats happy and healthy.
But just how do you do that? Getting a cat moving can be a monumental task, even on the best days. My cats love to lounge, and they do it remarkably well, as do most cats.
June 15th is National "Take Your Cat On An Adventure" Day. You don't have to go far or plan anything grand to provide adventure for your cat. It can be something as simple as purchasing a new toy and having fun for a few hours. You know how cats just love anything new!
How can you provide adventure for your cat on June 15th? It's easy. Here are a few simple and inexpensive ways to give your cat the adventure of his or her life.
1. Buy a new toy and enjoy some one-on-one play time with your cat.
Don't just place the toy in front of your cat. Grab it and give it a throw across the room or tease him with it.
We recently purchased this cat tunnel at our local dollar store, and our cat Sam loves it! He'll hide in it, sleep in it, and run through it.
If you have an indoor cat, buy a collar and a lead and get moving with him or her! It'll be fun for both of you. If your cat is an indoor/outdoor cat, accompany him while he's outside. Let him take the lead and you follow along for fun.
Our cat Jade loves the great outdoors. She loves to try to sneak out to have some tree climbing fun with Harper.
3. Open up a window and bring the outdoors in.
We have a lot of trees around our house, and the creatures living in them provide hours of entertainment for our cats. From birds to squirrels to bugs, our cats love sitting in the window and enjoying the views.
Just like people, cats need proper fuel for their adventures. Purina Pro Plan has a formula that's right for your cat and his dietary and nutritional needs. Take the pet quiz to find the formula that's ideal for your cat.
When I took the pet quiz, I received an email with details of the recommended formula and how it will be beneficial to my cats. When you complete the quiz, you'll receive a $5 coupon to apply towards the purchase of the Purina Pro Plan that's recommended for your cat.
