It’s true that I was a reluctant cat owner, and now I can’t get enough of her. My friends laugh at how obsessed I am with her, but she keeps me warm all winter! And we’re having renovations done right now, so I’m temporarily in a makeshift basement office. (not fun) Well Juniper is always down here with me! In fact, in most of my video calls for work, my co-workers can see her in the background – perched on a giant blue bean bag chair. She makes me happy. She makes me laugh.
I used to think she loved my loft office, because she was always up there with me when I was working. Now I realize what she loves is me, because when I’m in the basement, she is too. It makes me realize that it doesn’t have to be hard to please your cat. They like comfy things and food things and being left alone things and ear scratching things too.
1 – Give your cat GREAT, mess-free food. It’s as simple as that! For Juniper, that’s Meow Mix Simple Servings from Target.
Simple Servings is a new, single serving of delicious wet cat food in a convenient, mess-free cup. They come in single-serve portions so there are no leftovers. They’re easy-to-open and easy-to-serve without the need for forks and spoons!
Juniper loves that they contain pieces of real seafood or poultry in a savory sauce or gravy. Simple Servings are available in a variety of flavors at Target: Tuna & Salmon, Seafood Variety, and Chicken & Turkey (Junie’s favorite!). There’s no mess, no leftovers, and no fuss. Just open and serve the cup – it’s that simple! And even a choosy cat loves Meow Mix Simple Servings.
2 – Spend your quiet times with your cat. They love their peace and quiet, don’t they? One way to really bond with your cat and show her love is to make your time together enjoyable and relaxing. Gentle pets, resting, etc.
3 – Give your cat lots of affection, scratching posts, and comfy places to sleep. As for comfy places to sleep, that could be a number of places. My cat prefers the inside of a kid trampoline, or on a giant, soft bean bag chair. Or even in my lap!
4 – Give your cat lots of treats!
5 – Make an easy DIY cat toy! When I was cleaning out Scarlet and Des’ old costume bin last week, I found a few feather/feather boas from old Halloween costumes. The cat went crazy for them! So I found an old cheap magic wand, some string, scissors, and a tiny bell toy and went right to work to make a feather cat toy!
- First, gather a stick or “magic wand”, scissors, twine or good string, and the desired toys!
- Next make a tight tie around the base of the feathers, and include a little bell if you have one! (we have tons)
- Then, cut a good length of strength and tie a knot around the wand/stick. Wrap it around a few times to secure the knot.
- Trim off excess string, and enjoy!
