Cats are smart and feel things, so they can have a long list of things they like (and maybe just as long a list of things they don't like!) Most of the time, the things your cat loves are the same things you love, like fresh, tasty food, long naps in cosy places, and lots of fun things to do.
Cats adore sleeping. Cats sleep 12–16 hours a day! Cats sleep all day—and who can blame them? Everyone enjoys a lengthy, pleasant slumber.Kittens and seniors sleep more than teenage cats. If you think your cat is sleeping too much or too little, ask your vet what's normal for his breed, age, activity level, and size.
Cleans them. Grooming helps cats clean their fur and hides them from predators. How? Licking their fur removes odours.They stay healthy. Grooming spreads a cat's natural oils, keeping her coat healthy, lustrous, and moistened.
Dinnertime isn't the time to eat rotten food. Cats too. Besides tasting awful, rotting food can grow mould or host pathogens like Salmonella and Staphylococcus.Check wet and dry food expiration dates before feeding your cat. This ensures you feed her fresh, nutritious, and safe food.
Cats will drink from running faucets anytime they can. There are many cat-specific drinking fountains, so kitties always have fresh, refreshing water.Some cat breeds enjoy water play. If your cat loves to splash, fill the bathtub or kiddie pool with a few inches of water during playtime. This will help her exercise and cool off on hot days.
Cats scrape and claw to sharpen their claws. They also love it.Scratching relaxes and rejuvenates cats. It's like a long stretch for sore muscles. A cat can wake up quickly by scratching on a cat tree or post.
Cats play all their lives. Cats play with anything from lint to fancy cat toys, but it's important for their health and development. Playtime keeps them active, engaged, and happy while reminding them of hunting in the wild.
Windowsill cats are frequent. Why? It's great for birdwatching! Some cats spend hours watching birds, either because they're prey or because the movement fascinates them.If your cat likes to wrap up in windows and has light fur, protect her skin from the sun.
Cats need human affection, care, and companionship, despite their solitary reputation. Cats express their affection differently than humans.Purring, bunting, sleeping on you, meowing, licking, and even placing her butt in your face are signals your cat loves you. Indeed.
