Sparkles, champagne, and celebrations – there are plenty of ways we bring in the New Year and say goodbye to the past. Every January we work hard to commit to resolutions we’ve set for ourselves. Why shouldn’t our furry friends join us in self-improvement and new adventures? Your kitten may have plenty of goals of their own! Check out these 6 New Year’s resolutions for your cat and let us know what your best friend will be working on this year in the comments.
1. Make time for play
Playtime helps reduce stress and keeps you and your pet entertained. Your cat may be a jumper and prefer to climb high up on towers to play with their toys–or maybe she’s content just rolling around on the ground with you. Plenty of time for play also improves the bond between you and your kitty.
2. Try a new toy
There are a variety of cats toys available to keep your kitty entertained and bring out their inner lion. Try some new cat toys, whether they’re a crumpled piece of paper or some fancy new cat furniture. Chances are your cat was happy with every toy they may have received this holiday season. It can also give you a chance to stretch your inner arts and crafts guru and create a toy designed perfectly for your cat.
3. Set aside some “me” time
Find a nice windowsill or couch and just relax. There’s nothing quite like people-watching out the window while snuggling on your favorite pillow.
4. Spend some quality time with loved ones
Unplug and settle down for some quality snuggle time. Does your cat prefer hiding under the covers or acting as your personal blanket?
5. Maintain a healthy weight
Consult your veterinarian about the ideal weight for your breed. Start the year off right with an active lifestyle and healthy diet. There’s nothing like chasing around your favorite cat toy to shed those unwanted pounds.
6. Establish a better relationship with your veterinarian
Your veterinarian is a great resource for any questions you may have about your pet’s health. A great relationship with your veterinarian can help you stay on top of your pet’s health throughout their life. Consult your veterinarian with any questions you may have about your pet’s health and schedule their yearly checkup.
