Fluffy’s Cutest Resolutions

Happy New Year! Are you ringing in the new year with a new kitty? One of the few bright sides of the coronavirus pandemic has been seeing people rush out to adopt new pets. We love seeing animals get loving forever homes! Here, a local Chesapeake, VA veterinarian lists some things your new feline pal may have planned for 2021.


Cats may look like innocent little balls of fur, but they’re actually quite efficient hunters by nature. Fluffy will carve out some time from her busy napping schedule to work on her pounces and kicks. She may even try to get that adorable wiggle/run/pounce/roll combination. Help your tiny lion make this goal by getting her lots of fun toys and taking time to play with her daily.


Did you know that our feline pals can sleep up to 20 hours a day? (We aren’t entirely sure that Fluffy actually needs that much rest, but that’s another topic.) Make sure your cute pet has lots of comfy napping spots to choose from. Store-bought kitty beds are of course purrfect, but your cat will also happily get comfortable on a soft folded blanket.

Greater Flexibility

Fluffy is very lithe and flexible. She can also balance quite gracefully on fences, branches, and, of course, sofa backs. Your furball may want to become even more flexible this year. Don’t be surprised if you find your kitty snoozing in a position that would likely cause you to pull a muscle or crack your back!

Train The Humans

Kitties are very, very good at meowpulation. Many of our feline patients have their humans trained to feed them, pet them, and pick them up on demand! Indulge Fluffy’s adorable requests for attention and playtime. However, don’t let those cute meows convince you to overfeed your pet.

Catch The Red Dot

It’s always fun watching cats hard at play. Fluffy takes her ‘hunting’ sessions very seriously! And while she may never catch that elusive spot of light from the laser pointer, she’ll certainly have fun trying. 


Cats are very grateful for the love and care we give them. Fluffy may spend a chunk of 2021 in your lap, just enjoying feeling safe and loved. 

As your Chesapeake, VA veterinary clinic, we look forward to providing your feline buddy with great veterinary care in 2021 and beyond. Call us anytime!
