Cute Ways To Pamper Your Cat For Happy Cat Month
September 1, 2023

September is Happy Cat Month! Cats are really remarkable little furballs. Fluffy is an extremely capable hunter, but she’s also very, very good at wrapping her humans around her paws and getting us to pamper her. As it turns out, keeping your pet happy is also good for you. Our feline pals are great for lifting our spirits and making us smile! A local Potomac, MD vet lists some simple ways to get that little motor going in this article.

Catnip Bubbles

Fluffy is super cute and lots of fun to watch when she’s enjoying some of her favorite plant. However, you can now give your furry friend catnip in bubble form. (We probably don’t have to tell you how adorable this is to watch.)


One cute quirk that almost all of our feline pals have in common is a box obsession. It doesn’t seem to matter how big the box is: Fluffy will happily hop into ones that are too big or too small for her. If you have kids, having them make your feline overlord a box castle can be a great rainy-day project.


Comfortable beds are definitely one of those small luxuries that can make a huge difference. Fluffy can spend a whopping 20 hours a day snoozing. (We’re not convinced being adorable is quite that exhausting, but that’s another topic.) Buy or make your kitty a new bed.


Playing is fun for Fluffy, but it’s important for more than simple entertainment reasons. Kitties need stimulation and mental enrichment just as much as they need the exercise. It’s important for your furball to be able to unleash her inner panther. (Or leopard, or jaguar, depending on her coat color.) Take time to play with your fuzzy little friend.


Did you know that you can download games for Fluffy to play on a phone or tablet? Many kitties really enjoy playing with digital mice or moths. This is a good way to get some extra mileage out of an old phone or tablet.

Window Seat

Cats are much safer staying inside. However, they do enjoy looking out windows, and watching birds, squirrels, and whatever else is around. Make Fluffy a comfy spot for sunbathing and spying on local wildlife.
