If the Cat’s Not Happy, Nobody’s Happy: 10 Tips for Keeping Kitty Happy!

Every cat owner knows who really rules the roost. Keeping your cat happy is a sure way to keep everyone on good terms. Try these 10 ways to keep your feline family member purring.

Separate Dishes
1-18
Give your kitty separate spots for drinking and eating. She prefers fresh water in a separate location. Refill water once a day or more.


Free Feeding on Dry Food
2-19
Cats prefer munching leisurely throughout the day over sitting down to two or three big meals. Leave out a bowl of dry food so she can eat as she pleases.


Offer Wet Food
3-18
For dedicated meal times, serve up a bowl of wet cat food. The moisture in the food supplies her with water she needs to reduce her risk of urinary tract infections.


Use Large Litter Pans
4-13
Give your cat plenty of open space to do her business. A large, shallow pan also makes it easier to clean the dirty litter. Avoid covered pans, which cut space and may not appeal to your cat.


Choose Litter Carefully
5-9
Fill that large pan with unscented clay litter. Give the litter box a home that’s convenient yet private.
