Respect Your Cat Day

Did you know that March 28th is Respect Your Cat Day? (We know, Fluffy thinks every day is Respect Your Cat Day.) Our feline overlords are rather small, but they have very big characters, and are actually the unofficial heads of many households. But how do you show respect to a cat? A Hamilton County, IN vet offers some tips below.

Good Basics

First things first: kitties deserve to feel happy, healthy, and safe. Provide your furball with good food, a clean litterbox, and fun toys. Regular veterinary care is also very important! Most of our feline patients should come in about once a year. Ask your vet to recommend an appointment schedule.

Relinquish Bed Space

Have you ever found yourself squished on the side of the bed, while your feline pal sprawls out in the middle? This is one way you can show respect to your kitty.

Cater To Kitty’s Whims

Fluffy can be rather finicky. She may meow to demand her dinner, only to turn that adorable nose up at what you put on her plate. The next time your pet complains, be sure to immediately replace Her Furry Majesty’s food with something more to her liking.

Offer Napping Spots

Make sure that your cat always has appropriate napping spots, and comfy places to leave fur on. Some good options are couches, laps, and baskets of fresh laundry. If your furry buddy decides to sleep on your computer, book, or magazine, just leave her be until she is ready to move.

Photograph Wisely

Our feline friends are very photogenic, but they also have a knack for looking rather silly on camera. Be sure to only take pictures of your kitty when she looks dignified and slightly superior. And don’t even think about taking photos of your cat while she’s wet!

Fair Warning

One cute habit cats have is to curl up on our laps. This is in part Fluffy’s way of snuggling up with us, and in part her way of using you as furniture. Be sure to stay seated until your feline buddy has finished her nap!


Another way to show your cat respect is to offer her presents. Toys, beds, and cans of tuna are always good choices.
