Resolution: Pet Fitness?
Maxwell: Don't mind me, I'm just doing a bit of stretching before my Paw-lates class.
Maxwell, is that your New Year's Resolution? Paws up, dood!
Seriously, pet fitness is not necessarily a laughing matter, considering that a few years ago, a study was published that stated obesity in cats had increased by 90%.
You can help your cat become more physically fit by encouraging him to increase his activity. The above link and this one here provide you with helpful tips you can use to encourage your cat to move a bit more.
How about a new year's resolution for us cat owners? Commit to more playtime each week. Not only is physical activity healthful, it provides your pet with much needed socialization and enrichment time. The benefits may even include less mischief around your home!
