New Year’s Resolutions for Lazy Cats

Happy New Year! Are you making resolutions this year? If so, your cat will probably just yawn and blink if you try to tell her about them. Actually, your pet will probably sleep through most of 2018. That said, even the laziest felines may have some goals for the new year. Here, a Coon Rapids, MN vet lists some resolutions for cats that can’t be bothered to do much.

It’s not hard to figure out what Fluffy’s number one goal will be: get as much rest as possible. However, most kitties sleep about 14 hours on average., cats can sleep up to 20 hours a day! Your pet may very well try to beat her napping record in the new year. Fluffy may also vow to experiment with new napping spots in 2018.

Cats can be quite cuddly little furballs. Fluffy is adorable when she meows to be picked up, follows her humans around, or weaves between her human pals’ legs. However, for lazy cats, the best way to show love is to just curl up on their owners’ lap and purr. This also allows Fluffy to combine giving affection with her favorite pastime: sleeping.

While unmotivated kitties may not have much interest in catching mice or climbing bookcases, they may still have some desire to get in shape. Fluffy may vow to stretch a bit more this year. She may even try sleeping in some different configurations.

While cats don’t actually run on solar power, they certainly do like to soak up some rays. Fluffy will attempt to recharge her batteries by snoozing in her favorite sunbeam.

Pounce. At least once.
Even the laziest cat still has occasional bursts of friskiness. Your furball will at some point motivate herself long enough to make at least one valiant attempt at pouncing on a toy.

Did you know that birdwatching is one of Fluffy’s favorite activities? Make your lazy pet a comfy window seat, so she can relax and watch local wildlife.

Ignore People
Does your kitty come when you call her? Or does she completely ignore your summons? Fluffy just may be too busy doing nothing to bother answering you when you call.
