Cats make the best snuggle buddies, but there are so many more activities you and your pet can both enjoy (besides cuddling up and taking a cat-nap together). Need some ideas? Great! Let’s take a look at 7 cat-friendly activities so you can spoil your best friend even more than you already have.
1) Teach Your Cat to Walk on a Leash
For cats that crave the outdoors, you can train them how to walk on a leash. Look for cat-friendly harnesses and start exploring.
The SurferCat Luxury brand is one of the favorites among cat explorers! Your kitty’s safety and security are important to keep in mind when exploring. Using a cat GPS tracking device is a great security measure to take in order to keep them safe.
2) Book a Vacation at a Cat-friendly Hotel
This is a “purrfect” excuse for a weekend getaway! Make sure to call the hotel and research their website for information regarding their pet policy.
