6 Things Cats Love

Cats make great pets – they are unique animals with amazing personalities. Getting to know your cat can be a whirlwind journey – it can be tricky trying to figure out what they like and dislike. However, here are 6 things that all cats love. 

1. Cats Love Food

Not surprisingly, top of the list is food! Cats, like their humans, love meal time. They love tucking into a bowl of fresh food after a long day of… being a cat. Typically, cats like both wet and dry food. The important thing to remember is that it is fresh and full of nutrients. We recommend reading the labels of all foods before you serve them to your kitty.

2. Cats Love Running Water

If you have a cat, you’ll know they love drinking fresh, running water. Once given the opportunity to put their snout under a tap, they are there, lapping it all up. This is a great habit as drinking water is incredibly important for a cat’s health.

The Catit 2.0 flower fountain encourages your cat to drink more water, allowing them access to filtered, running water. The flow of the fountain draws their attention immediately and it can be changed to 3 different settings; a gentle flow, a bubbling top or calm streams.

3. Cats Love Naps

If there’s one thing we know for certain about cats, it’s that they love to sleep. In fact, the average cat spends about two-thirds of their life asleep!! As a newborn they sleep 24/7  and after that they can sleep for 16 – 20 hours a day. They love to snooze and who can blame them?

4. Cats Love Playing

During the (few) hours that they’re not asleep, cats love to play. They have lots of energy and they definitely love to use it. There are lots of cat toys that can keep them entertained. Balls with feathers, scratching posts and squeaky toys seem to do the trick.

5. Cats Love Being Groomed

Cats love grooming. They groom themselves about 20% of the time and do so for many reasons. Grooming relaxes a cat, keeps them clean, keeps their skin and coat healthy and it cools them off during warm weather. Sometimes, cats love when their humans groom them too. But, this depends on the cat.  If you’re cat likes to be groomed, then it is a great way to interact and bond with your furry friend.

6. Cats Love You

What cats love above all else is you, yes you. They need love, care and attention and love to get it from their humans. Although they are discreet in their show of affection, if you look closely, the signs are there. Meowing and purring at you are signs of affection. When they lick you they are showing you they love you and they sleep next to you, revealing their comfort in your presence.
