8 Ways To Spoil Fluffy For International Cat Day

August 1 2021

There’s a very important day coming up. International Cat Day is August 8th! Our feline friends have charmed people from every country, culture, and walk of life. Kitties live on every continent, with the exception of Antarctica, which they have actually visited. Fluffy definitely deserves a bit of special recognition! A local Crown Point, IN vet offers some tips on how to get that little motor going below.


Kitties are absolutely adorable when they are hard at play. Get Fluffy some new toys to bat under the couch! You can go for something classic, like a catnip mouse. Or, try something a bit more modern, like a remote-controlled toy.


Did you know that you can download games for your furry buddy to play on your phone or tablet? Who knows? Fluffy may really enjoy ‘catching’ digital mice. (Results may vary.)


Our feline pals can be a bit finicky, but even the pickiest of them usually have a few favorites. Tuna in water is always popular with Fluffy and her pals. You can also give your kitty some yummy store-bought treats, or perhaps a little shredded deli meat.


One of the best things about cats? They’re absolutely hilarious to watch. Giving your furball some catnip may be just as entertaining for you as it is for her!


Who says cats always have expensive tastes? Your furball may be purrfectly thrilled with an empty shoebox!


Our feline companions are very, very sleepy. Fluffy spends the vast majority of her time snoozing, napping, or resting. One surefire way to please your drowsy pet? Get her a new bed!

Kitty Purrniture

Kitties aren’t exactly shy about ‘borrowing’ our beds, sofas, but they really do appreciate having some things that were made just to suit them. Get Fluffy a window seat, kitty tent, or perhaps even a cat tower. If you’re working with a tight budget, look up DIY options.


Fluffy may be trying hard to convince you that she’s a cold, aloof killer, but she really can be quite affectionate. Pay some extra attention to your feline buddy! If your kitty isn’t much for snuggles, just talk to her and play with her. She’ll still appreciate the attention.
