September is Happy Cat Month, and Paws shares 10 reasons why my cats are happy all year-long.

  1. We have lots of TLC, so much so that our mummy stays up an hour or so after work – some a 13 hour plus day –  to play with us.
  2. We have lots of toys to play with and even each other.
  3. We get canned food twice a day. Thanks Mummy. We like that.
  4. We are happy that we are all spay/neutered. Thank goodness we don’t have to deal with all those ‘heat’ swings. We feel good all the time,and there’s a whole bunch of illness we won’t get.
  5. We visit the vet at least once a year – sometimes more if we are sick. Mommy says she takes better care of us than herself, and that’s true.
  6. Mommy buys Feliway so we keep calm and don’t chase the oldest cat so much. He really is a scardy cat, and is fun to chase.
  7. We get to go outside, but only on supervised visits, so mummy knows we are safe and out of harms way.
  8. Mummy spreads out the TLC so we each get lap time, sometimes all 5 together.
  9. We have lots of places to snuggle up for a nap, some in the sunshine, some hidden from the other cats.
  10. We have the best life. Our mummy makes sure we do!
