How To Achieve The Impossible: A Happy Cat


Cats get a bad rep. They are known for their temperamental moods, and I don’t think many cat owners could deny that. Clawing, scratching, hissing, and other such behaviors seem integral to the very nature of being a cat. Is it possible for your feline friend to be happy? Well, you could never know that for sure without actually being able to talk with your pet, but there are certainly things you can do around your household to help improve your cat’s life and make them a little less temperamental in terms of their mood. Here are some tips and tricks to help you achieve the impossible and make your cat happy.

Speak the language.
Again, you’re never going to be able to speak cat. You might be a cat fanatic (you might be in-cat-uated with them), but that doesn’t mean you can actually communicate with them fully. You can, however, pick up on their vibe. Certain meows do definitely indicate certain things amongst all cats on a universal level. Short meows are a friendly greeting, whereas low and growling meows are a sign that your cat is unhappy; they might be hungry or tired. Again, this is something you can probably pick up on after knowing your cat for a while because moods are certainly easy to distinguish.

Keep them healthy.
Another thing you need to pick up on with your cat is their health. If they seem restless then, if you can, you could give them some time outside. If this is not possible, make sure you have toys and areas in the home where they can race around and expend some of that energy. You want your cat to stay as physically active as possible because this is just as important to them as it is to humans. You want them to remain strong, but you also want them to remain mentally healthy and happy; exercise is the key to this.

It’s also important that you keep a watchful eye over your cat whenever you can and notice warning signs such as excessive scratching or perhaps that he or she is shaking its head a lot. These could be an indication of fleas, and that’s something you’d want to sort out quickly. You might also want to look into options in terms of an emergency vet in your local area. You want to know what your plan of action would be if there was an accident or sudden, unexpected sickness befell your feline companion. The last thing you’d need to be doing in an emergency is scrambling to find out where you need to go.

Love and affection.
Believe it or not, cats do sometimes want love and affection. Don’t be afraid to invite your cat in for a snuggle with your on the sofa or in bed from time to time because you might just find that they gladly oblige and actually want to cuddle up to you. It’s a win-win situation; you get a soft and fluffy thing to stroke and they get a comfy human bed.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
