To know a cat is to know purr joy—that’s why we are so excited that December is National Cat Lovers Month! Whether you have a cat in your life or just appreciate how meowvelous cats are, there are many excellent ways to celebrate.
Consider Adopting A Cat
Cats are one of the most popular pets for a reason. They are great companions and form unique bonds with humans. Unfortunately, cat overpopulation remains an issue, so if you are looking to add a cat to your family, consider adopting one from a shelter.
Volunteer at a Shelter & Raise Awareness
Not ready to be a paw-rent? Reach out to your local shelter to see if they need volunteers! You’ll be able to play an active role in helping kitties find their furever homes. If you are unable to volunteer, you can still help by sharing the shelter’s adoptable cats on social media.
Find Your Cat’s Favorite Cat-ivity
All cats are different, which means every cat enjoys different activities. Spend extra time with your cat or purchase new cat toys to see how they like to play! Do they enjoy catnip? Catnip-filled toys? Window perches? Cat videos on YouTube? Bird music? The paw-sibilities are endless.
Capture Some Meow-mories
Take photos of your cat! Capture some memories with your cat by taking selfies or have them strut their catitude by setting up a photo shoot. Share the photos on social media with #NationalCatLoversMonth for all cat lovers to admire or keep them for you and your family by putting them into a collage or scrapbook.
Spend Time Pampurring Your Cat
Spend time giving your cat some extra TLC. Extra time petting or brushing your cat will help boost your bond and your cat will truly feel the love this Cat Lovers Month!
Schedule A Wellness Appointment
One of the best ways to show your love for your cat this month is to make sure they are in good health! If your cat is due for a wellness appointment, it’s time to give Gateway Pet Hospital a call at 925-230-3451.
We hope all the cat lovers out there embrace this special month!
