Fluffy’s New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year! Are you setting new goals for yourself this year? If so, your kitty will be right there at your feet (or on your sofa) as you strive to make your goals. As it turns out, your furball may also have some resolutions of her own. A Brandon, FL vet lists some of them below.

Catch The Red Dot

Kitties may be adorable and cuddly, but they are actually fierce predators in the wild, and are more or less hardwired to pounce on things. However, that little red dot has been eluding Fluffy for years. Maybe 2019 will finally be the year she catches her mysterious prey!

Relax

We’re pretty sure your feline pal won’t have a hard time achieving this goal. Cats sleep, on average, about 14 hours a day. (We’re not sure why kitties are so tired, but that’s beside the point.) Help your drowsy pet meet this resolution by offering her lots of comfy beds and napping spots.

Gain Complete Control Of Humans

Does your kitty have you trained to pet or feed her on demand? Do you delay getting up when your cat is on your lap, to avoid disturbing her? These are a few signs that your kitty has you wrapped around her paws. Don’t worry, though: even if Fluffy does achieve world domination, she’ll still only request beds, attention, toys, treats, and tuna fish.

Explore!

Kitties are very adventurous, but they are really much safer living indoors. Of course, staying inside won’t curb your cat’s taste for adventure. Fluffy will spend some of 2019 exploring closets, boxes, and various nooks and crannies in your home.

Work On Computer Skills

Cats seem to be drawn to computers, though they usually utilize them as beds. Fluffy also has a habit of walking across her humans’ keyboards. Who knows? Your kitty may be trying to figure out how to order cat furniture!

Supervise The Humans

Our feline friends are very curious, and perhaps a bit nosy. Cats like to pay close attention to their owners. Your cute pet may even follow you around from room to room! Get your furball a cat tower or window seat, so she can get a better view.
