4 Fun Ways to Say Happy Thanksgiving to Your Cat
Thanksgiving season is a time to take stock of all the wonderful things in our lives we have to be thankful for, and of course our cats are always high on that list. Our furry friends add so much joy and excitement to our lives, it’s only right that we find a creative way to show our appreciation on this day of thanks.
4 WAYS TO TREAT YOUR CAT FOR THANKSGIVING
1. COOK A THANKSGIVING DINNER FOR YOUR CAT
Why should humans get all the good food? Say Happy Thanksgiving to your cat with a delicious, healthy meal! Traditional Thanksgiving foods could make your cat sick, so make sure you know which human foods are safe for cats, then get creative with adding something special to your cat’s holiday diet.
A homecooked meal of cooked turkey, plain pumpkin puree and rice should do just the trick. Not the chef type? Use a simple Thanksgiving-themed mold or cookie cutter to turn your cat’s favorite wet food into a festive treat.
2. DIY THANKSGIVING-THEMED CAT TOYS
Crafty cat lovers: gift your cat a DIY Thanksgiving-themed cat toy, like a roast turkey or a maple leaf. Or, even better, get creative with your own ideas! A classic turkey made with felt and craft-store feathers is a great place to start or even a wishbone kicker toy. For added fun, fill felt toys with some catnip and dangle a string from the end for interactive play!
3. REDUCE HOLIDAY STRESS FOR YOUR CAT
Even outgoing, social cats can get stressed out by a lot of new people wandering in and out of their “territory” during Thanksgiving and other holiday parties. Keep your cat feeling comfortable by providing a safe place for them to escape to during get-togethers—anything from a room with a closed door and a “KEEP OUT” sign to a cat cave bed perched in a high spot where your cat can watch the action from afar.
Make sure your cat doesn’t have to navigate crowds to get to the litter box or fresh food and water. It’s also important to ensure your cat isn’t able to sneak out any doors when guests arrive. If you plan on traveling with your cat this holiday, there are several travel tips you can follow to ensure your trip isn’t stressful.
4. GIVE YOUR CAT SOME EXTRA LOVE
Thanksgiving can be a busy time for many households. But ensuring your cat feels safe, comfortable and loved should always be a priority. Keep the litter box nice and clean with a high-performance litter, like World’s Best Cat Litter™, that naturally traps odors and clumps tight for quick cleanup during this busy time.
Take a few moments to snuggle together and give your fur baby plenty of pets, playtime and even some grooming, so they look and feel their best for the holidays!
Cats bring joy to our lives year-round. Now is the time to show our gratitude. You’ll be rewarded by a happy, healthy cat—and that’s something to be thankful for! Make your one-on-one time even more special with our Spotify playlist tribute to cat love.
