One of the easiest ways to keep your cat happy, other than food and love: Is to provide cat enclosures for them, so they can be closer to nature and have lots of fresh air available. It's true that most cats are intelligent enough to stay out of harm's way when their outdoors and don't represent any danger to anyone: But it's important to remember that when you let your cat roam freely on their own, they're going to be susceptible to fights, traffic, other people taking them (including animal control). |
There are so many designs on the market that it's easy to find one that will integrate into your property and flow with the rest of your outdoor decor. Cat enclosures aren't something you have to purchase every few years, such as collars or a leash: If you purchase an enclosure made of high quality galvanized steel, or stainless steel, they will last you forever and can be used for every cat you own.
Customizable cat enclosures will usually come with a variety of perch designs and placements, to keep your kitty happy. If you plan on being away at work, or elsewhere, make sure they have a covered area to protect them from the rain and wind. On the same note; an automatic watering device is a great way to make sure your cat will never be without water, if you ever find yourself running late and can't get home right away.
More than one cat?
Most cats will get along great together, but before placing more than one cat alone in cat enclosures, make sure they do in fact enjoy being together. An enclosure can make a cat very happy, but not if they don't like the company they're with. You'll find most enclosures come in easy-to-assemble kits, but you can also hire a handyman to put them together if you're not comfortable.
