Ever wondered what’s on your cat’s mind during the holiday season? Well, let me tell you, our feline friends are all in for some Christmas cheer!
Imagine this: the tree goes up, lights twinkling, decorations everywhere, and all the treats your cat could dream of. During the Christmas season, cats seem to be living their best lives.
Now, let’s be real, cats might not fully grasp the whole Santa and tree concept, but they sure know how to make the most of it.
Christmas Tree As A Kitty Playground
Your precious Christmas tree essentially becomes your cat’s personal gym and playground. Ornaments transform into their toys, and your Christmas decor becomes an exciting “jungle” for your cats to explore and hunt in.
Sure, you might have to retrieve ornaments from the floor daily, but it’s a blast watching your kitty have so much fun.
Christmas Decorations: A Hanging Haven
Ah, the allure of hanging ornaments – it’s pure heaven for your cat. The moment you set up your Christmas tree, your cat, no matter how laid-back it usually is, becomes a holiday enthusiast.
Your home becomes a feline Christmas playground, with playful batting of baubles, ornament paw-punching, feline football with the fallen ones, and let’s not forget the feline version of a tree-climbing competition!
Yes, your cat is on a mission – whether to break its climbing record or to knock down as many ornaments as its paw can reach. Sometimes, hopefully, not too often, our cats find the ultimate thrill in toppling the entire tree.
Did Someone Say Boxes?
Oh, boy! Christmas means presents, presents mean boxes, and one thing’s for sure: cats adore boxes!
Cats find everything about boxes fascinating – hiding, napping, playing, and more! So, it’s no surprise that all those boxes left behind after your family unwraps their gifts are the real treasures for your cat.
A Christmas Present For Your Cat
In addition to all those gift boxes, consider getting your beloved pet a special present.
Just like any family member, your cat deserves a gift under the tree too. From scratching posts to comfy beds and string toys, there are plenty of great options.
Treat Yourself, But Treat Your Cat Too
The sound of a treat wrapper rustling will have your cat sprinting towards you, and during the holidays, it can become an everyday occurrence. However, watch out for that holiday weight gain; we don’t want our cats putting on extra pounds.
Remember: moderation is key. Treat your cat, but be smart about it.
Extra Cuddles And Attention
Amidst all the holiday hustle and bustle, don’t forget to shower your furry friend with some extra love this Christmas. Typically, the overall mood during the Christmas holidays is relaxed and festive.
We’re all a bit more laid-back, enjoying our time off work, and our cats can sense it. Make sure to snuggle your cat a little more, set aside some extra time for games and naps, and give those head rubs and kisses.
