How to Create a Cat-Friendly Home


Creating a cat-friendly home can enhance your cat's happiness and health. Let's explore how!

Scratching Posts

Offer scratching posts or boards. They satisfy your cat's natural urge to scratch and protect your furniture.

High Perches

Cats love high spots. Provide cat trees, shelves, or window perches for safe climbing and viewing.


Create quiet, cozy spots for your cat to retreat. A cat bed in a secluded area works well.

Interactive Toys

Stimulate your cat's hunting instincts with interactive toys. Rotate them regularly to maintain interest.

Safe Plants

Many houseplants are toxic to cats. Ensure all plants in your home are cat-friendly.

Litter Box Placement

Keep litter boxes in a quiet, accessible area. Ideally, you should have one more litter box than the number of cats.

Food and Water Stations

Position food and water stations away from noisy appliances. Cats prefer their water source separate from their food.


With these tips, you can create a home that caters to your cat's needs, ensuring their comfort, engagement, and safety.
