8 Adorable Ways to Make Your Kitty Purr on National Cat Day

Did you know that October 29th is National Cat Day? While our feline friends certainly deserve to be loved and pampered every day, this is a great time to show Fluffy some extra TLC. Here, a Carmel, IN vet lists some great ways to pamper your cat on her special day.

Catnip Bubbles

Catnip has long been Fluffy’s favorite plant. Your kitty will no doubt be thrilled with a catnip mouse or even a small fresh plant. You can also offer your furball some catnip bubbles.


Did you know that you can download apps just for Fluffy to play with on your phone or tablet? Let your furball try her paw at catching digital fish or mice. (Note: results may vary.)

Robotic Mice

Classic fuzzy mice will always be popular with our furry overlords, but if you really want to pamper your pet, get her a robotic mouse. These cute modern toys respond to your cat’s movements, providing her with both entertainment and mental stimulation.

Mechanical Fish

As we all know, cats are intrigued by fish. Why not get Fluffy a small mechanical fish that floats in water?

Window Seat

Your pampered pet is a fierce predator by nature. Even if Fluffy wouldn’t know what to do with a live bird, she’ll still enjoy watching birds and squirrels. Get her a comfy window seat with a good view. You’ll get bonus purrs for putting a birdfeeder up in the yard.

Vertical Space

Cats can’t see very much from ground level. This is one reason they tend to really like high vantage points. Get Fluffy some wall-mounted furniture. Or, go the DIY route and make her a catwalk or some kitty shelves.

Kitty Enclosure

If you have a porch or patio that looks out onto your back yard, consider making Fluffy a little enclosure, so she can get some fresh air and sunshine without being exposed to the dangers posed by cars, predators, or other hazards.


Our feline pals love being pampered, but they don’t necessarily have very expensive taste. A plain cardboard box may be a little slice of heaven for your kitty! You can even make Fluffy a box castle, complete with towers and turrets.
