Ինչպես ձեր տունը դարձնել զվարճալի և հաճելի վայր ձեր կատվի համար
Your home is a safe haven for your cat. Like any family member, she needs a healthy environment that will allow her to grow, play and, most importantly, thrive. Creating a supportive environment for an older pet can help increase its activity and mental stimulation, as well as reduce the risk of possible behavioral problems. How can you arrange a place for a cat in a house or room? Read our tips.
Give your cat the necessary (vertical) space. This will give her more room to move and climb in general, as well as being the perfect place to place accessories such as a cat tree, which will give your older cat plenty of places to hide, lie down or sit.
Add a scratching post to your list. Scratching posts allow the cat to let off steam. In addition, they will extend the life of your furniture! Make sure your older cat’s scratching post is stable and made from materials that are not harmful to animals, such as wood, sisal rope, or rough cloth. Place her next to a window, her sleeping area, or another place she loves and can afford to be a cat.
Join the chase. How to play with a cat? They love to chase and hunt. Therefore, if there is only one pet in your family, it is especially important that you participate in games and activities that will give her the opportunity to hunt and move around. In fact, research shows that the most popular cat toys are those that involve human interaction.
Be a good companion. Because cats are social animals, it’s important to provide your senior pet with plenty of companionship and mental stimulation. Gentle strokes, caresses, grooming and play are all welcome. If your cat spends most of the day alone, you can take another cat into the house to fill in the gaps in communication. However, you should always consult with your veterinarian before making such a decision.
