Lots and Lots of Cat Naps!

catnapIt happens everyday. At about 10:00am both of my cats are through for the day. At least for now. They curl up in their favorite spots on the bed or in their cat beds¬†and sleep through the day. Cats sure know how to sleep! Although the amount of time varies from cat to cat they spend an average of 13 to 16 hours a day curled up, fast asleep. Did you know that only the bat and the opossum sleep more? We really don’t know why cats sleep so much but they come from a long line of hunters and preditors. They are most active at dawn and at dusk. This is when their prey is most active. My cats are up at the crack of dawn looking out the window making noises to attract the birds. At night, my younger cat Millie, needs to play. I have to play with her favorite cat toy until she tires out. Usually, I tire out before she does!! So don’t worry if you see your cat sleeping during the day. As long as she is alert when she’s up, she eats her cat food normally and uses her litter box regularly she is a perfectly healthy, normal pet.

Should You Walk Your Cat On A Leash?

catleashA cat’s life is safer when they live indoors. Lots of people would like to give their cat some fresh air and would like to take them for a walk on a leash. There are leashes for cats available that are different from a typical dog leash. It is possible to train a cat to walk on a leash. Use a harness instead of a cat collar and get a leash that is four to six feet long. The first thing that you must do is get your cat used to the harness. If she resists, don’t force her. Leave the harness around for a few days where she can smell it. When she’s ready, let your cat drag the leash but keep an eye on her. Then hold the leash and follow her for short indoor walks. Eventually, you can try to take her outside. Make sure that you praise her, pet her and give her a cat treat when she goes where you want. Never pull.

In my opinion, if your cat won’t walk on a leash, don’t force her. Indoor cats are not used to being on a leash or being outdoors. An ideal situation is a screened in porch. Make sure she has plenty of cat toys to play with. ¬†This way your cat can get the feeling that they’re outside without really being out. They can rome around on their own and will still remain safe.
