5 Tips on Living in an Apartment with Cats

A cat’s comfort does not only depend on proper nutrition and grooming. Let’s say a cat is well-fed, healthy, well-groomed, and always has a clean litter box. But what does she lack for complete feline happiness? Imagine a cat’s day in the wild. Having slept on a tree or in a secluded nest, the cat washes, drinks water from a stream or licks the dew from the leaves, and starts hunting. Around you can hear the chirping of birds, the rustling of rodents in the grass, and the cat, with its characteristic predatory passion, track down the prey, watch it, and makes a dash at the right moment. And now the victim is in the mouth of the cat-hunter. Next, of course, you need to sleep and bask in the sun. And after rest, it can chew grass, play or look for a pair for procreation. And all this against the background of danger, because there are always enemies nearby – much larger predators that can attack and, without hesitation, tear to shreds.

But what happens when your pet wakes up in the morning. The food is already in the bowl, the fur is well-groomed, the tray is clean, and there is not enough space! So the unfortunate animal sits at the window all day, listening to the sounds of the street. And sometimes it will sweep through the apartment with a candy wrapper in its teeth. That’s all the joy. So, it is precisely in filling the cat’s life with interesting activities, tasks, and various pleasures that the improvement of the cat’s quality of life consists.

What Can You Do for Your Pet?

Well, first, plant some cat grass. This can be a special mix purchased from a pet store or regular oats for sprouting. The cat will gladly nibble the grass. In addition to the fact that the pet really likes the process of eating grass, it is also beneficial for its digestion and for cleansing the body.

Secondly, you can buy it at a pet store or make a house for cats yourself. It is better that the house is located higher. You can also add several benches and a claw point. Cats love these “things” very much and never ignore them.

Thirdly, it is imperative to play with cats, and the more often the better. After an active game, the cat always remains very happy. After all, it satisfied her hunting instincts and still caught this nimble toy!

Fourthly, it is necessary to provide access to high shelves and cabinets. The cat feels comfortable when the whole room is in front of it at a glance. At the height, cats have a very good rest morally and sleep well. By the way, if the cat really wants to go into the closet, you should think about it, maybe it is not going to mess with it, maybe it just found a safe place to sleep there. In that case, why not let it sleep and rest there.

Fifth, it is desirable to have a few closed doors as possible. Cats just can’t stand it. After all, they must control their entire territory. If, nevertheless, there is a need to close the doors, then there is such an option as a cat door. Nowadays, almost every door store sells these fixtures. You can also make a cat’s door with your own hands.

Here are some simple tips to help your cat become a happier, contented, and fulfilling pet. This means that the quality of life of your beloved furry friend will also increase, which is very important in the conditions of living in a closed space of a city apartment.
