2020 Resolutions for Frisky Cats

Happy New Year! Are you starting 2020 with a kitty at your side or on your lap? Fluffy may have slept through last night’s festivities, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have plans for the new year. Here, a Carolina Forest, SC vet lists some things on your playful pet’s agenda for the coming year.

Catch That Red Dot

Whoever first discovered that cats can’t resist chasing the dot from a laser pointer probably deserves an award. This knowledge has provided thousands—if not millions—of kitties and their humans with countless hours of entertainment. Fluffy may never catch her elusive prey, but she’ll have fun trying!

Work On Combo Moves

If your feline friend has purrfected her pounce already, she may move on to more complicated kitty moves. For example, Fluffy may want to master that tricky butt wiggle/run/jump/roll meow combo.

Help Around The House

Kitties are very considerate little furballs. Fluffy may try to lend a helping paw with things like changing the sheets and wrapping gifts.

Get The Human To Play

Does your furry pal sometimes hide behind a door and then run out at you as you walk past? Does she bat at your shoelaces, or paw at cords on your clothing? This may be Fluffy’s way of trying to get you to play with her. Indulge these cute kitty playtime requests!

Explore All The Things

Any time you bring home a new box, or open a suitcase to pack or unpack it, there’s a good chance that Fluffy will hop right in. Your feline buddy also won’t hesitate to explore any cupboards or closets you open, especially ones you usually keep shut.

Play With Something That Isn’t A Toy

As the saying says, there’s no accounting for taste. Fluffy may ignore her new catnip mouse, and bat a bottlecap around instead. Just don’t let her play with anything that isn’t safe.

Recharge

Fluffy can actually expend quite a bit of energy very quickly when hunting or playing. It’s safe to say that your frisky furball will spend a lot of time recharging her ‘catteries’ in 2020. Offer her lots of comfy beds, and let her snooze on your lap sometimes.
