Keep your pets entertained!

It is important to take the time to interact with them as a means of providing physical activity and to keep them happy and healthy.

Encourage your cat to exercise

As cats age, they become less active than before. Thus, encourage your cat to exercise to maintain healthy body weight, stimulate their mind, and keep reflexes sharp.

give your cat its own space

Give your independent cat its own space

Cats are independent creatures. So whilst they need our care and attention, they also highly value their own space.

Read your cat’s body language

Read your cat’s body language

If your cat’s ears are facing forward and their eyes are round or squinting, they are likely to be calm and content. If they rub their head or tail against you, it’s a sign that they feel close to you, so you’d be welcome to return their affection.

Prevent or alleviate stress in cats

Ease a cat’s stress and anxiety by minimising their exposure to unpleasant circumstances.

How much exercise does a puppy need?

As a start point, however, consider your dog’s size and breed type. Smaller dogs tend to mature to adulthood at between 6 and 12 months old and therefore are able to tolerate increased levels of exercise at an earlier age.

Healthy portions are smaller than you think

Many pet owners think their cat needs more food than it really does. This means that many cats are overfed; not only can this cause weight gain, but may lead to other health issues.

Choose dog breeds that are good with children

It is a good idea to consider the general temperament of a breed, as well as its size and energy levels. If you have children with allergies you may also be looking for a hypo-allergenic breed.
