#Infographic: Keeping your indoor cat happy!

Hi everyone,

This is another great infographic produced by the team at terrys fabrics:

Many cats love to stay indoors and are never happier than when padding around the house. Yet sometimes your cat may become less content, which can be distressing both for you and your pet.

When a cat isn’t 100% happy they can show it in a number of ways. For example, your cat may become ill or simply more lethargic than usual.

It perhaps doesn’t surprise many of you that your cat likes to be in control! And when they don’t feel in control in their environment this can lead to unhappiness. One simple way you can keep your cat comfortable in its environment is by keeping to a routine in your interactions with them. This can be by feeding them at the same time each day and even by trying to play with them at the same time. I imagine for many of us that’s as soon as we come home from work!

Cats also need to be their senses stimulated to keep them happy. While I’m sure many of you will already use catnip, there are also a number of other herbs that could provide a little interest and variation for your cat. For those of you whose cat isn’t partial to catnip, cat thyme may prove a useful substitute.

Enriching your cat’s life with toys is also a fun way to keep them happy. Unfortunately this can get expensive as cats tend to grow bored of toys pretty quickly, so why not try an enrich their lives by making some easy to make toys and puzzles? This is a great, cheap, way of adding variation to your cat’s day to day life.

  1. Jamima is an indoor cat. Even though I’ve replaced my couch I’ve not been able to throw out the old one because Jamima likes to hide inside the lining underneath it. When it’s hot/cold/noisy, that is her Happy-Place!

  2. I have two brother cats indoors since June 2015. Once about five months ago they started fighting and lasted a few days, they are at it again and it has been over a week. I have tried everything. The smaller of the two is stressed and growls when cornered and stays up in my closet until he needs his box or wet food. What do I do now? I have had many cats but these two are different.
