If you love your kitty and want to stay on their good side, listen up!

These tips and tricks will keep them happy, engaged, and making biscuits at your house until the end of time.

Put a box on your desk if you work remotely from home.

Give your fur babe a designated place to chill out, because there is a 1000% chance that your moggy will casually drag their toe beans across the keyboard and stare daggers into your heart while you try to earn more Amazon cardboard box money.

At least this way, your desk kitty will be neatly organized and out of your way…if only for a second. And every second counts, right?

Share some paws-itive vibes to connect on a deeper level.

Cats are tactile creatures and they love to feel things in their paws. Usually, it’s something breakable they’re about to swat off a table, but if they get touchy-grabby with you and it’s not dinner time, they’re just showing you some affection.

Use it as an opportunity to remind them how much you love and adore them!

Get a pheromone diffuser to boost feelings of inner peace.

Cats are just like us – they can get anxious and stressed out when their world flips upside down. If you catch them bouncing off the walls more than usual, treat them to a pheromone diffuser to give them a sense of safety, security, and belonging.

It produces vapors that are similar to their facial pheromones, which they usually release by rubbing their cheeks on you, the furniture, and everything else they typically claim as theirs.

Glow up those fluffy cheeks!

Cats are notorious clean freaks, and they’ll go to great lengths to groom every part of their body, including the bits we dare not look at.

While you won’t win any brownie points by drawing them a warm bath, they’ll definitely show some gratitude if you treat them to a relaxing facial.

Build a climbing gym so they can look down and judge gaze lovingly at you.

When you dedicate a space for your little tiger to reach the high heavens, they’ll expend their excess energy there instead of on your bookshelf, curtains, or the top of your head. Your future self’s hairline will thank you for it!

Grow your own weed.

Don’t worry – oat grass is legal in all 50 states and it won’t send your tabby into a wackadoo frenzy!

What it will do is aid your cat’s digestive system. It acts as a laxative, which can help move those pesky hairballs out the tail end more quickly.

Meditate together to build a rock solid relationship.

Spending quality time together, contemplating whatever, is a great way to bond with your cat’s higher self. It forces both of you to just relax and let go.

Just breathe in and out to the rhythm of the purrs, and you’ll both be zenned out in no time.

Splurge on wet cat food.

In the wild cats would get all their hydration from their prey. While dry kibble is convenient, it doesn’t have the moisture content they need to thrive.

Cats can get a bit finicky with the water bowl, so do yourself a favor and give them wet mushy things to eat. Seriously, they need this to survive, and they’ll love you twice as much if you get the reeeeally good stuff!

Empower them to brush their own fur.

Got an old hairbrush? Zip-tie it to the leg of a chair! But don’t let El Gato get too used to doing this, or they might start to ponder your actual usefulness in their lives.
