When cats feel happy: how to please your pet

Cats generally have a reputation for being cute but demanding creatures who like to show their independent spirit. In fact, it all depends on the character of the pet and the characteristics of the breed. Siamese cats, for example, are very jealous, and Bengal cats do not like to be held and have adopted many habits from their wild ancestors. But sphynxes, Thai and purebred cats adore their owners. They are usually tame, calm, obedient, and not picky about food.

It's easy to please your pet because cats can sense human emotions and are very grateful. Read the OBOZREVATEL article about simple ways to make a cat happy.

Basic needs

Experts recommend choosing a diet based on many factors:

  • age
  • weight
  • activity
  • preferences
  • health status.

Sweets, spicy, overly salty, and fried foods can lead to a number of diseases. The list of foods that are strictly forbidden for cats includes tomatoes, onions, garlic, and dishes with spices. They overload the gastrointestinal tract.

Veterinarians say that raw fish should not be given to cats, at least on a regular basis. There are several reasons for this. Raw fish can contain parasites that can infect a pet. In addition, its frequent consumption will lead to kidney problems and urolithiasis.

60% of the cat's diet should be meat products. You can also cook broths and a variety of cereals that contain meat and stewed vegetables.

By the way, the most common mistake is to feed cats both food and homemade food. This way, the pet seems to be happy, and you can save your budget by buying food not on a daily basis. Veterinarians warn that this is not the way to go. You should choose one diet for your cat: either natural products or store-bought food. Mixing will lead to serious health problems. A cat's diet should be balanced and nutritious.

Emotional component

Cats quickly become attached to their owners and can be happy only when they feel safe. It is important that the animal trusts you. So, show care and affection to your cat more often. However, don't be too annoying: if the cat clearly shows that it doesn't want affection right now, don't insist. Cats can take offense. Of course, you don't have to beat the cat or physically punish it. If the cat has done harm, a slightly raised tone will be enough.

Comfort and coziness

Cats love to sleep, so to be happy, they need a cozy place to rest. It can be a special bed, rug, pillow, or even the owner's bed. Cats often choose unexpected places: the sink, bathtub, floor, window sill, or space under the bed. The main thing is that the animal is calm, safe, and cozy.

Interesting toys

Cats, especially in childhood and young adulthood, are very curious and playful animals. To keep your cat from getting bored, buy some interesting toys for it. There are many options: from balls and mice to laser pointers.
