As the new year approaches, many of us humans like to make resolutions to better ourselves in some way. But what about our feline companions? They can always use a little improvement too, right?
So, without further ado, here are some new year's resolutions you can make for your cat:
Find a toy that appeals to their natural hunting instincts - even the chunkiest of house kitties have them! If your cat likes to chase and run down their "prey," try the Mouse Hunt Cat Toy - an RC mouse toy you can control directly from your phone!
If your cat likes to chase birds, try a feather wand that simulates the flight of birds and the rustle of feathers, too. Cats that prefer more landlocked prey might prefer a lightweight ball they can easily bat around the floor, or a "crinkly" toy that imitates the sound of prey scuttling through the undergrowth!
One way to achieve this is to slowly (and safely) teach your cat to walk on a harness - getting outside and walking is a great way to meet new people!

Be a little more tidy:
Make a resolution to keep your cat's supplies organized - and to give them regular grooming sessions to keep the shedding under control.
If your cat doesn't like brushes, try incorporating grooming into quality petting time with a grooming glove, which fits over your hand and has soft bristles that will catch all the cat hair. When you pet your cat with the glove, it feels like petting (and maybe even a little kitty massage) but grooms your cat at the same time.
Plus, it’s a great way to bond with your favorite feline! And, regular brushing can help reduce the amount of fur your cat licks off during grooming - and thus reduce hairballs, too. And if all else fails, just remember that a little cat hair never hurt anyone (except for maybe your allergies).
So there you have it, a list of new year's resolutions you can make for your feline friend. Who knows, maybe your cat will even stick to them. But let's be real, it's a cat we're talking about here. We'll just have to wait and see. Happy new year to all the cats (and their humans) out there!
