Things Cats Are Thankful For

November 15, 2021

Thanksgiving is just a few weeks off. While we are definitely anticipating some delicious home-cooked food, we also think it’s important to honor the meaning of the holiday: gratitude. We’re definitely grateful for our feline friends! Fluffy is also quite appreciative of the love and care we offer … even if she does have an odd way of showing it. A Rockwall, TX vet lists some things kitties are grateful for below.


Our feline pals are definitely very tired! As far as Fluffy is concerned, you can never have too many comfy beds to choose from. Your drowsy little pet will probably rotate from spot to spot for those 32 daily naps, before cuddling up with you at night. Make sure your kitty always has plenty of options.


Cats like to seek out warm, cozy places to sleep in. This is why you may find your furry buddy snoozing in your laundry from time to time. Fluffy also sometimes likes to crawl under blankets. Of course, your kitty will also enjoy being able to bask in the sun. Put a few beds or comfy chairs in spots that get sun. Instant purr!


Kitties are much better off as indoor pets. However, Fluffy will still enjoy watching birds and squirrels. Comfy window seats would definitely make this list!

Laser Pointers

Some of our furry friends are very, very obsessed with catching that elusive red dot. If your kitty likes playing with a laser pointer, keep one near your chair, and use it as you’re watching TV.


Our feline buddies have a very curious—and entertaining—relationship with this member of the mint family. Giving Fluffy some fresh ‘nip can be just as fun for you as it is for her!


One of Fluffy’s cuter quirks is her obsession with boxes. If you put an empty box—or paper bag—down on the floor, your curious pet will probably immediately hop into it. This is a good reminder to be grateful for the little things in life!

Lap Space

While not all kitties are lap cats, many of them really do enjoy snuggling up with their humans. If your furball likes to doze off on you, indulge her. Purring cats are definitely something to be grateful for!

Happy Thanksgiving! As your local Rockwall, TX animal clinic, we’re very thankful for all of you! Call us anytime!
