Celebrating National Pet Month With Fluffy

May 1 2022

May is National Pet Month! While we think our feline friends should be celebrated all year, this is a good time to show Fluffy some extra TLC. A local vet offers some suggestions on how to do that in this article from Armitage Animal Hospital, your Newmarket, ON animal clinic.

New Beds

If there’s one thing that’s bound to please your feline overlord, it’s another napping spot. You can pick up a store-bought bed almost anywhere. You can also make your own. There are lots of ideas online. This can be a purrfect project for kids!

Preventative Health Plan

Cats need proper veterinary care to thrive, just like any other pet. If Fluffy hasn’t been to the vet for a while, make that appointment now. You may also want to consider looking into a preventative health plan. These may actually save you money in the long run, as you can spread much of the cost of your furry pal’s appointments out into equal payments. There are different tiers available, so you can choose a plan that’s right for you. In any case, it won’t hurt to learn more!

Photo Session

You can never have too many cute photos of your furry little buddy. Snap some pictures of Fluffy being her adorable self, and share them on social media. 

Kitty Garden

We recommend keeping kitties inside. They’re much safer staying indoors! However, that doesn’t necessarily mean Fluffy can’t enjoy a taste of nature. Set out some pet-safe plants for her to nibble on. Spider plants and Boston ferns are both good options, but you can find many more at the ASPCA site here. You can also try planting cat grass in an old litterbox. Fluffy may really enjoy having her own little lawn to look adorable on!


Want to really get that little motor going? Get Fluffy a new toy, and indulge her in a fun play session. It will be great for your feline pal to stay in shape and unleash her inner lioness a bit. This is also a pretty cute way to bond with Fluffy and spend some time with her. After playtime, offer lap space for kitty cuddle time.
