5 ways to spoil your cat by creating a sanctuary at home

5 ways to spoil your cat by creating a sanctuary at home

For most of us, homes aren’t just a place we stay; they are a sanctuary and a safe place from the chaos of the outside world. 

But what about your feline friend?

Shouldn’t they have their haven, too?


Here are five exciting ways to turn your place into a paradise for your whiskered friend.

Designate a Cozy Corner:

Every cat needs a personal space they can claim as their own. A spot with a cozy stay in your home where your feline can retreat when they need some alone time would be the best gift for your cat. This comfy corner provides security and warmth, offering your cat a private place to rest and recharge. Providing a vertical space such as a cat cave, shelf, or even a cat bed helps to create an enriching environment for your cat, keeping your furry friend cozy year-round.

Tip: If other pets, like a dog, exist, try placing the vertical space where only your cat can access it. Also, ensure the space is away from loud noises, allowing your cat to relax without disturbance. 

Provide Interactive Toys:

Does your furry friend tend to use your furniture as a scratching post and sneak into the kitchen for treats? Your cat may be bored and lack stimulation. Cats are brilliant creatures that need to be entertained and active. So, invest in interactive toys such as rattle balls or puzzle feeders to stimulate your cat's natural hunting instincts and provide enrichment. If you are wondering which toys to give your pet, felt toys are the best choice for indoor cats, offering safety and fun. Remember to watch playtime to ensure safety and let your pet’s fun begin!

Tip: Cats become accustomed to toys after three brief play sessions. To keep your feline friend engaged, rotate between toys, changing the color or structure of the toys to help maintain your cat's interest over time.

Avail Window Seat:

Cats are explorers, always curious about the outside world beyond their usual confines. Give your pet a taste of the outside world with a window seat. For the ultimate comfort, consider a window-mounted perch. Whether it's a cozy hammock, plush shelf, or funky bubble pod, your cat will love lounging while taking in the sights and sounds of the outdoors. Historically, keeping cats indoors all the time was not feasible. However, modern society has made keeping feline inside possible, but cats’ basic behaviors and needs haven’t changed. 

Tip: Ensure the window seat is securely mounted to prevent accidents or injuries while your cat enjoys their perch. Position the window seat in a sunny spot to provide warmth and a gentle breeze for your cat.

Accommodate Elevated Heights: 

Cats are natural climbers drawn to heights to evade predators and gain a hunting advantage. Mimicking their wild instincts, domestic cats often seek elevated spots like shelves or perches for security and comfort. Introducing kitty shelving or cat trees into the areas where your family spends the most time, you create designated spaces for your cat to retreat to when they need a break from house guests, kids, or other pets. These elevated perches give your cat a bird's-eye view of their surroundings so they don't feel vulnerable to ambushes from behind. 

Tips: The elevated structures are placed firmly against the wall or floor to prevent accidents and household hazards while cats explore the climb. Adding climbing options like partitions and scratching posts keeps them engaged and interested. 

Equip Ideal Sense of Smell:

Cats are the ultimate scent detectives with a sense of smell 15 times more potent than humans. This heightened ability isn't just about finding food; it's their built-in alarm system, alerting them to potential dangers. Hence, avoiding products that might mess with their scent signals is best. Skip the scented litter and resist the urge to scrub down areas your cat has lovingly marked with their unique fragrance. Take note of where your cat rubs their face, side, or tail, and try to minimize cleaning these spots to preserve their scent markings.

Tip: Cats have a strong dislike for specific smells, particularly citrus. Refrain from using scented air fresheners and carpet cleaners in their spaces to ensure a more comfortable and pleasant environment for your feline companion.


By implementing these tips and incorporating cat-friendly products into your home, you can create a sanctuary that prioritizes your cat's comfort, well-being, and instincts. A peaceful setting improves your cat's quality of life and strengthens the bond between you and your beloved pet.
