Our pets are a huge part of our lives and I’m a strong believer that cats and dogs can make great companions and be an essential part of your family. Today I’m talking all about my boy, Remi and sharing tips to keep your cat happy and healthy. This post is sponsored by Single Edition Media on behalf of Ceva Cat.
Remi is a wonderful cat and we’ve had him for about 4 years now. He was a barn cat at birth and his love for the outdoors never did stop, so now he is an indoor and outdoor cat. Spending part of his time outdoors means that he comes into contact with things like fleas and ticks, which I’ll discuss further here.
Tips to keep your cat happy and healthy
Let’s first discuss the topic of happiness in your cat. While cats are wonderful animals, they can get stressed or feel unsafe and start expressing bad behavior. We started noticing some issues with Remi spraying a couple of years ago. We soon figured out that it was because he was happiest being outside during the warm months of the year and he would spray when we wouldn’t let him back out.
Now we use a Feliway® Diffuser to help him feel more comfortable and happy when he’s inside the house. It’s easy to use and is not a drug so it’s safe for him. The Feliway® Diffuser mimics the pheromone that felines produce naturally and has helped to eliminate Remi’s urine spraying habit.
Feliway® Spray can be used directly on your cat’s things or things that they like to scratch or spray. Feliway® Wipes are also helpful if you travel with your cat, or for when you’ve got to crate him to go to the vet. You can get Feliway® products through your veterinarian.

Now let’s the health of cats for a moment. Even if your cat doesn’t go outside like our Remi does, parasites like fleas, ticks and lice can still find their way to your cat through other things that are living and breathing. For instance, our dogs could be carriers that bring these things into the house.
At any rate, there are great products on the market, such as Catego™, that you can apply to your cat’s skin which will help to kill fleas. Catego™ is fast acting, killing fleas within 6 hours and kills ticks through contact as well. It’s easy to apply through the patented applicator on the tube and is a very powerful way to control fleas and ticks. You can grab Catego™ at your veterinarian’s office or through my affilate link on Amazon. It will be available at PetSmart stores soon too!
Another tip fort keeping your cat happy is to provide him with food that’s good fro him and some fun toys to keep him active and playful. Of course, a lot of love and cuddles certainly go a long way too and cats thrive on attention. When your cat is purring and rubbing its head on you, it means they’re happy and they likely love you to pieces!
If you’re lucky, you could end up with a hopelessly devoted cat who loves to cuddle and you could even end up with a cat as unique as Remi, who is best friends with the dogs!
