Did you know that there’s a special day coming up for Fluffy? The 8th is International Cat Day! Of course, if you tell your cat about this, she’ll probably just yawn and blink at you, then go back to her regularly scheduled naps. Then again, your furry friend may actually make an effort to celebrate her special day. A local San Antonio, TX vet lists a few of the things on your kitty’s agenda in this article.
Pounce (at least once)
Kitties are very, very good at getting us to pamper them. It’s probably safe to say that many of you would find at least a few cat toys under your sofa if you moved it. Get Fluffy a new toy to bat around!
Our feline overlords are very opinionated. It may be a good thing that they can’t actually express themselves verbally. Regardless, your furry little buddy may give you an earful … especially if you’re late with her dinner.
Show Affection …
Cats aren’t the easiest animals to understand. They can be cuddly one minute and playful the next, only to get angry at you … and then hop into your lap for a snooze. That said, Fluffy does have some pretty adorable ways of showing her love. Don’t be surprised if you get some affectionate purrs and kitty headbutts!
… Or Not
On the other end of the spectrum, Fluffy may take the opportunity to unleash all of that kitty angst. She may bat at your ankles, refuse to come when called, or smack something off your countertop or coffee table. She may also decide to attack your shoe, or leave a hairball in the middle of the floor.
Being adorable is pretty exhausting. Fluffy may appreciate a new bed for all of those naps!
No matter what day it is, Fluffy will strive to keep up with her beauty ritual. Give your feline pal a hand with this by gently brushing her.
Enjoy A Special Treat
You can’t expect Fluffy to celebrate National Cat Day without a special meal. Your kitty can have some canned tuna in water, or perhaps some deli meat. Boneless, plain chicken, fish, or beef is also fine.
