Every September cat lovers around the world come together to celebrate a special occasion, Happy Cat Month! This month-long celebration is dedicated to recognising and promoting the well-being, health and happiness of our cats.
Happy cat month, which originated in the United States, was established with a noble purpose: to raise awareness about the welfare of cats and to promote their physical and emotional well-being. Cats are known for their independent and mysterious nature but they also thrive on love, attention and proper care. This month provides a perfect opportunity for cat owners to focus on the happiness and contentment of their feline companions.
Here are some key aspects to consider during Happy Cat Month:
- A healthy cat is a happy cat. Schedule a visit at your vets for a wellness check, vaccinations and any necessary preventative care. Regular vet visits are essential for early detention of potential health issues.
- Provide your cat with a balanced and nutritious diet. High quality cat food, appropriate portion control and fresh water are vital for their overall health and happiness.
