Did you know that National Pet Day is April 11th? This is a great time to show your furry friend some extra TLC! After all, pets are truly wonderful friends and companions, who enrich our lives in many ways. We all know one way to brighten up a pet’s day: treats! But what else can you do to make your furry best friend feel loved?
Activating your kitty’s purr can be quite easy. Offer Fluffy a new bed, or a piece of cat furniture. If you are operating on a tight budget, look online for great DIY ideas. There are some really cute options for upcycling clothes, furniture, and other items into things for your feline buddy. You can also offer your furball a small pot of catnip or cat grass, or make her a little window shelf. For some cats, an empty cardboard box will do just fine!
Want to get that cute tail wagging? Picking up a few new playthings for your canine pal is one great way to do that! You can also buy or make Fido a new doghouse, or get him a kiddie pool to splash around in. A new bed is another good option. If your pooch is a senior, consider getting him doggy stairs, or perhaps a gentle pet massage.
If you have a hedgehog, ferret, or another exotic pet, you’ll want to do some research to determine what would be the best option. Toys, of course, are always a good bet. If your tiny pal lives in a tank or cage, consider getting your pet some new digs. Your little buddy may also appreciate a new hidey-hole. Ask your vet for specific recommendations.
Is your furry friend overdue for veterinary care? If so, this is a great reminder to make an appointment. No matter what type of animal companion you have, your little (or not so little) buddy will benefit from proper veterinary care. Another thing that is suitable for all our animal friends? Love! Spend time with your pet. This is also a great opportunity to take some cute pictures of your animal companion.
