Transitioning your cat inside


Transitioning your cat inside

My name is Dr. Jenise Daigle. I am one of the veterinary dermatologists here at Central Texas Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital. Check out today's Studio 512 Pet Tip.

One popular myth about cats is they're happiest having the freedom to go outside. That is far from the truth. Being an indoor cat can be safer and extend the life of your feline friend. Here's how to transition your outdoor cat to an indoor one. Be entertaining and play games. Balled up paper and laser pointers. These are classic games cats love. They especially enjoy it if you play with them. Create kitty hideaways. Your kitty has his favorite hiding spaces outside. You can offer some indoors. Boxes work great. So do paper bags.

Get a bird feeder. Cats who like to go outside are often hunting wildlife, so create opportunities for your cat to fulfill that hunting instinct without killing baby birds. A bird feeder outside a window where your cat has a safe perch, gives them the chance to enjoy watching the birds and keep the bird safe. When accidents do happen, CTVSEH is there for you. Their specialists and doctors offer a range of in-depth surgical procedures, testing equipment and diagnostic capabilities.

We are proud to team up with Studio 512 to bring you this important pet tip to keep your four-legged friend happy and healthy.
