The month of September is Happy Healthy Cat Month. This is the time to celebrate the lives of cats and remind cat owners to take steps to ensure their cats are happy and healthy. Happy Healthy Cat Month was created by the CATalyst Council. They aim to help educate and spread awareness about the health, well-being and significance of cats. The CATalyst Council wants to perpetuate the image of cats as caring and affectionate and in need of the same level of attention and affection as dogs. The Council works to ensure cat owners provide their cats with quality veterinary care and preventative medicine. 

How to Celebrate Happy Healthy Cat Month

Can you remember the last time you took your cat to the vet? If your cat hasn’t been sick or in need of emergency care, it might be a while since they’ve been to the vet. If it’s been at least 6 months since the last time they’ve seen a veterinarian it’s time to schedule a check-up. Healthy cats are happy cats.

Happy Healthy Cat Month isn’t just about making sure your cat goes to the vet. It’s also important to take a look at the other factors that affect your cat’s health. Make sure you’re feeding your cat high-quality and nutritious food. Overall, spend some quality time with your cat. Cats love to play and receive human affection. Use Happy Healthy Cat Month as an opportunity to bond with your cat and make sure they’re getting the attention they need. Additionally, cats are social animals. If you have the resources, consider adopting another kitty for your cat to interact with when you’re not home. If it’s not the right time to add a new member to your family, a fun, new toy for your cat works great too.
