Get an Automatic Cat Feeder

It is hard to stick to your scheduled feeding times when you have to put in lots of overtime.  An easy way to overcome this little issue and to ensure that your cat’s nutritional needs are taken care off is by investing in an automatic cat feeder.  Wet food feeders are brilliant because it keeps the food fresh, keeps insects and pests out of your cat’s food and you can set these feeders to automatically provide your cat with food at the usual feeding time.  With a good quality cat feeder, you never have to worry about coming home late from work or about leaving early.  The feeder will ensure that your cat’s basic needs are taken care off.

Get an Auto Waterer

Your cat should always have a supply of fresh water.  Invest in an auto waterer and put it far from your cat’s food.  Cats generally don’t like drinking water when it is close to food which results in dehydration and kidney problems.

Invest In a Cat Jungle Gym

Cats love to climb, scratch their nails and take long naps.  A cat jungle gym is the best Christmas gift for your pet because these gyms offer lots of climbing, crawling and hiding space, includes scratch poles and is often fashioned with all sorts of cat toys.  A cat jungle gym will keep your cat off your furniture and will keep him content and busy while you are gone.

Give Your Cat Something to Do

Your cat is bound to make a mess of your home if he gets too bored.  Leave something fresh for your cat to do, see or inspect every day.  A new cat toy, a strange harmless insect, a cardboard box… these are all great ideas that need to be alternated daily in order to keep your cat busy.

Invest In a Camera

A camera can be handy if you are not planning on going home at all.  With a cloud-based camera placed in your cat’s favorite spots you can check in regularly to see if your cat is still doing ok.
