Helping cats loose weight and keep it off is challenging. Most pet parents humanize their companions, which also means, they mistakenly equate food for love. Do not replace playtime and quality bonding with food and excessive treats.
Both overfeeding and excess treating are huge contributing factors to the problem of overweight and obese pets, but there are other reasons why owners struggle to help their cats lose pounds.
1. Not accounting for all calories fed each day.
2. Nor curbing free feeding.
3.Not following appropriate measurement recommendations.
4. Not considering age.
5. Not accounting for health issues.
When we introduce the empty boxes to our domesticated cats, they first carefully investigate the object. They are completely familiar with every square inch of their domain, so when something new enters, they are obviously curious. Once their curiosity is satisfied, the instinct kicks in an they hop
Some also note that the security of a box could mimic the snuggly warmth a kitten feels while cuddling their mother and littermates. as a result it is possible that while box sitting, a cat's body releases endorphins that cause pleasure and reduce stress.
Although it would seem that cats would only like boxes that provide complete concealment. they enjoy time spent in boxes of any size, and even in representations of boxes.
Cardboard boxes are the most popular and ready available types of boxes that cats like. Cardboard might effectively retain the cat's body heat, creating a cozy environment.
Another thing to consider is what kind of boxes you are offering your cat. Giving your cat boxes is a great way to provide an enriching environment. Cat trees with high-up boxes and elevated hidey holes are felines favorites, while some cats refer hideaways closer to the ground. Experiment to see what your cat prefers.
