Respect Your Cat Day

This post is also available in : French German Italian

Today is Respect Your Cat Day. We asked our humans, what this meant for them.
Respect your cat is….

  • treating him like a cat
  • taking good care of his health
  • meeting his specific needs
  • giving him good quality food
  • providing him a clean litter box (several in multicat houses), enough toys, and enough room to live
  • catifying your house
  • taking time to play with him
  • petting him every day
  • trying to think like a cat to make him happy

Do you have other ideas ? What are your top 3 items on that list ?

Our friends from Pawesome Cats asked the same question to several people, click here to read the answers !

    I asked mom and she said: 1. treating us like cats (I disagree – she occasionally tries to dress us up); 2. playing with us everyday (again I must disagree – when I want to play fetch at midnight she refuses!); and 3. petting us everyday – I definitely agree – she actually loves on us too much!!!

      Well, it’s a little bit direct, but what is important is the result, right ? Purrs

    We like: treating him like a cat, meeting his specific needs and
    trying to think like a cat to make him happy.
    They are all good points though 🙂

    I like that the first item on your list is “treating him like a cat”. I don’t like it when people consistently treat their pets like little humans or playthings.. A little fun is fine, but animals are happiest when they are treated respectfully, as animals.
    All the other items on your list are excellent too.

  7. Little Binky and Granny

    Those are very respectable tips, Zorro and Pixie. Granny would like to add just two more, act and react like a cat…Grandpaw says she is good in that 😀 Pawkisses for a respectable day 🙂 <3 <3

    I asked Calico Lucy what I could do to respect her and on her list were:
    1. Feed me exactly at 5 pm… none of this 5:05 or 5:10 nonsense
    2. Let me knead your bare skin as often and as vigorously as I choose and
    3. Don’t get all het up when I am on top of the gecko tank, or by your china tea kettle typewriter — if you don’t want it broken, don’t make it accessible!
    I loved your list!
