If you have a cat in your life, there’s a high chance that you want to give them everything they could possibly want or need in life. After all, they’re probably the most adorable little fluff-ball you’ve ever come across, and most cats give their owners more than they could ever put into words. They become your best friend, they become your companion, and they seem to know exactly how you’re feeling. So, why not give your cat a little treat? It’s super easy to make your very own cat spa at home, which means that your cat can head on over whenever they fancy pampering themselves.
Create a play area
Although cats spend a huge amount of their time wandering around outside or lazing in the sun, they also love to get their hearts pumping and their minds whirring. Yes, cats love to play when they want to, which is why a play area is the perfect addition to your cat spa. You can fill this play area with different levels to climb on, toys, and more. It’s important to spend this quality time with your cat, to ensure that your bond only gets stronger as time goes on.
Build a brush station
While cats love a good scratch or two from their owners, they are also pretty independent. Because of this, it might be an idea to create a brushing station for your cat, so that they can make their way over for a brush every so often. To do this, all you need to do is attach small brushes to a small piece of wood. Then, just leave it somewhere around the cat spa, and show your cat how it’s used. Hopefully, they should then be able to treat themselves every time they feel like a good ol’ scratch.
Build a scratching post
There’s just something about a scratching post that cats absolutely love. Whether they just stretch up the post or whether they do use it to give their claws a good file down, there’s no doubt about the fact that it’s an important addition to a cat spa. It’s incredibly easy to make your own scratching post, as you just need a thick piece of wood that you can then wrap with rope. Some cats prefer vertical posts, while others like horizontal, so it’s down to you to figure out which one works best for your kitty cat.
Embrace the catnip
Although it’s fair to say that you shouldn’t treat your cat to catnip all of the time, a little treat here and there will definitely enhance their experience in the cat spa. One of the best ways to embrace the catnip is to fill a sock with catnip, and then tie up the end so that it doesn’t come loose. Your cat will probably lose their mind as soon as they smell the good stuff, and associate the cat spa with good times. This will see them come back time and time again.
