Maintaining Your Cats Weight

Some cats eat much more than others do.

Do not leave the cat food out for your cat all day long if he seems to be putting on too much weight. Set up a schedule for your cat. Leave the cat food out for thirty minutes in the morning and again in the afternoon.

Some cats exercise a lot and others rather rest most of the day. My cats love to run up and down my steps. I keep my litter boxes in my basement. They get exercise when they have to use their litter box.

Keep a toy box out with a lot of different cat toys in it. You will be amazed at how many times you notice him picking out his favorite toy out of the box. Once in a while he will play with something completely different. Buy a circle toy with a mouse or a ball in it. My cats get a lot of exercise by batting the mouse or ball around.

Play games with your cat. Throw a ball and he will chase after it. Buy a laser  light and watch him chase and try to catch the light.I bought a remote control mouse and my cat would run after it. Buy a stick with feathers on the end and he will jump up and down trying to catch the feathers.

A lot of cats are night time eaters. Take their food away completely at night. Eating at night with no exercise until morning will really put on the extra pounds.

If nothing seems to help your cat loose weight buy a weight maintenance cat food. You can buy it at a pet store or from your vet.

A cat that is too heavy can develop many health problems. Being overweight can led to a premature death. Hope your cat maintains a healthy weight and stays fit and trim.

Purina PP Protein Shrimp Cat Snack

I was provided Purina Pro Plan Shrimp Cat Snack to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first gave the Purina shrimp cat snacks to Kohl and Garfunkel and they looked at me like please give me some more shrimp cat snacks. Conrad woke up from a cat nap and ate up three pieces of the Purina Shrimp Cat Snacks while I had my back turned from him for a few seconds.

Maggie and her sister seemed to be delighted with their Purina midday shrimp cat snack. I laid out some pieces for Onyx to eat while I gave my cats fresh water to drink. I went back to were I had placed the snacks for Onyx and they were all gone. My cats had a purrfect afternoon cat snack.

I gave all of my cats next door some Purina Pro Plan Protein Shrimp Cat Snacks from Chewy.Com. Russ, Cali, Mr. Gray and Faith met me at the door so they got served first. Faith is a slow eater so Mr.Gray got plenty of Purina cat snacks. I put some in Bella’s cat bed and she ate up every single morsel of her snacks. Nicole, Peter, Hilford and Sherlock are very shy but they came out to enjoy the tasty Purina PP Protein Cat Snacks from Chewy.Com. Addi still lets her now two year old kittens eat their fair share of snacks before she will eat any herself but she could not resist 100 %  after she ate one piece she needed two more right now and no later.

I gave my cats in the other house some Merrick cat treats again the next morning.

Anxiety and Your Cat

My cats get overly anxious when I go on a vacation. My cats may stop eating for awhile or throw up what they have eaten. I put my suitcase out where my cats can look at it several days before I leave on my vacation. My cats can get used to the fact slowly by seeing my suitcase sitting out that I will be leaving soon. Cats do not like any changes whatsoever in their daily routine. I leave some of my clothing sitting out so my cats can curl up in it. Cats feel more at ease when they have something with your scent on it to sleep on or smell.

img_20150815_130542

By having a new kitten in the household your older cats will become anxious to begin with. Make sure you spend a lot of time with your older cats so they do not fell left out or think that you do not love them anymore. Give your cat some special cat treats or tuna canned in water and that will make them feel extra special.

20151112_121252

I have someone check on my cats everyday when I am on a vacation. My cats are given fresh water everyday for optimal health. Their food dishes are kept full and their litter boxes are cleaned out everyday. My cats have nice clean towels to sleep on while I am gone or my bed or heated cat beds.

IMG_1618

Cats like to play with catnip filled mice and other cat toys while you are gone as this helps them relax. My cats like to bird watch through my picture window. Put something out to help your cat occupy his day while you are gone on your vacation. I have plenty of cat toys in my cats open toy box for them to choose from so they will not get bored while I am gone.

What Does A Cat Owner Want For Christmas

A cat owner always wants the best quality items possible for their feline friends.

I would like a new heated cat bed for my cats so they can enjoy the cold winter nights in complete and total comfort. Chewy.Com has a large selection of fine heated cat beds to choose from. They have heated beds for your indoor and outdoor cats.

Conrad in a heated bed

My cats like their Litter Maid self cleaning litter box. After a long day at work you don’t want to scoop away at cleaning your cats litter box. The Litter Maid self cleaning litter box does all of the cleaning for you so you can have a nice and relaxing evening.

Cat Litter

I like stainless steel water and food dishes as they are easier to clean and do not break if you happen to drop them. Plastic dishes and water bowls become brittle with time. Plastic bowls stain easily and look unappealing .

My cats like to eat more cat treats as the weather gets colder. Chewy.Com has huge selection of fine quality cat treats that are made in the USA to choose from.

My felines like to play with catnip filled cat toys. They like catnip filled toy mice, balls, snails, balls on strings and pretty much any cat toy that is filled with catnip.

A gift certificate from a pet store is an excellent item for you to give to any kind of pet owner. They can pick out what they are in need of for their pet at this particular moment in time.

A cat owner would like some Udderly Smooth Hand Cream from UdderlySmooth.com to keep their hands nice and silky smooth after they clean up after their cats.

udderly cream

A cat owner always is in need of good quality cat litter and cat food. I like to make sure all of my cats food is made in the USA or Canada.

I hope this post helps you choose the perfect gift for all of your friends that have a feline or two in their household.
