Festive Feline Fun for the Holidays

Dec 17, 2015 03:32AM ● Published by Family Features

Your feline family members give their companionship and (sometimes begrudging) affection all year long. So when the holidays roll around, it’s time to give a little of that love in return by bestowing gifts and including them in the fun.

Wrap it up
Some reports suggest that pet owners spend more than $5 billion each holiday season on their pets, with gifts ranging from costumes to gifts and treats. In fact, more than 80 percent of cat owners gift their cats during the holidays, spending as much as $50 million on goodies, such as special treats.

After convincing your furry friend to leave the fun of the wrapping paper behind, you can make playtime irresistible by providing a fun, bobble toy that dispenses treats. The TEMPTATIONS SNACKY MOUSE™ Toy releases cat treats as your cat plays with it, wrapping playtime and treat time up in a tidy little bow.

Along for the ride
If you’ll be traveling for the holidays, consider bringing kitty along. Be sure all shots are up to date and you have a clean bill of health from a veterinarian before your trip. A well-ventilated carrier is a smart bet for keeping your cat contained in a safe place during the journey, and it will provide a familiar “home base” when you arrive at your destination.

Travel with ample food, treats and water, and don’t forget to provide regular access to a litter box (check your local pet store for travel and throw-away options). If your cat is prone to stress, there are numerous pheromone therapy options available, and some familiar toys and blankets from home can help provide comfort, too.

#SaySorry (not sorry)
Even as they feel guilty doing it, many cat owners celebrate by dressing up their pets in seasonal costumes and snapping pictures to share with friends. To help them forgive and forget, TEMPTATIONS™ Cat Treats invites you to #SaySorry to your cat for the elf costumes and Christmas sweaters you subject them to. Witness the perfect way to say sorry via this YouTube video from Temptations: youtube.com/watch?v=wMH4xmOeKxc.

After dressing your cats in their holiday finest, make good with your furry friend with the irresistible flavor and unique dual texture of TEMPTATIONS Cat Treats that deliver a crunchy outside and soft, meaty inside with every bite. The treats are available in a wide variety of flavor combinations that will satisfy the most finicky of felines.

When a cat is part of the family, adding them to the holiday fun is simply the only choice. Find more ideas for a cat-worthy Christmas at temptationstreats.com or facebook.com/Temptations.
