4 Ways to Keep Your Cat Healthy and Happy

Compensation was provided for this post by Purina via studioD. All opinions are 100% my own.

I was on the phone yesterday afternoon and Adventure Kitty was meowing loudly. The person on the other line asked what was wrong. Nothing was wrong; Adventure Kitty had just been loudly communicating with me. We'd all been out of the house all day yesterday and Adventure Kitty missed us. She wanted me to pet her and cuddle on her, talk to her, and sit with her on the couch. Katie's cat, Adventure Kitty has a connection with ALL of us. She is part of the family, leading a happy and healthy lifestyle in every room of our house. And that is why we serve her Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend. 


Keep your cat healthy and happy

Adventure Kitty needs LOTS of loving. I bet your kitty at home loves you too! She is very attached to us and we are attached to her too. In the morning she wakes up Katie and then goes into Matthew's room and climbs in his bed. Then she runs down the hall, jingling her tags, until Xaver and I get up. She then settles down on the couch after nibbling on some of her new favorite food, Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend Chicken & Rice Formula.  The Shredded Blend is a combination of kibble for crunching and little meaty pieces. The texture provides a more authentic dining experience for cats and our Adventure Kitty found the aroma irresistible. She enjoyed the food from the moment we opened the bag!


Keeping your cat healthy and happy is easy if you start here:

  • Feed her a healthy food like Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend. More than 21,000 cat owners have left positive customer reviews about Purina Pro Plan Shredded Blend, mentioning that their cats love the taste, ingredients and look of the food. Feed kitty a ½-cup serving to keep her look fit and trim.
  • Help her stay active. Use toys, play with your cat, or install a cat condo where she can play and exercise.
  • Help kitty feel loved by including her in family time. Adventure Kitty watches TV with us and hangs out in my craft room while I work. Set up a space for kitty to lay in each room so she knows where she can be part of the action but stay out of the way of foot traffic.


  • Give kitty the experience of being outside in a safe way. Indoor kitties sometimes yearn to go outdoors. Keep them safe by making that outdoor experience a smart one. I'll share more about that coming up!

We got Adventure Kitty two years ago as a kitten too small to eat food on her own. We rescued her and bottle fed her, nursed her to health, and treated her like a family member. She stays inside most of the time because we have a lot of predators in the desert behind our house and we live on a high traffic street. She yearns to be outside some days!


How to let your kitty experience the outdoors safely

Katie is especially worried about Adventure Kitty going outside. She got her name from being extremely adventurous as a kitten, when she'd run off into the grass in the yard and explore every corner of our patio. Being raised inside, we're really concerned about her being in the yard unsupervised, but we wanted to let her enjoy the outdoors. Here are some ways to safely let your kitty enjoy the outdoors and fresh air:


Open a window with a screen and let the kitty sit in the windowsill. This is one of Adventure Kitty's favorite activities in the afternoons. She watches the kids get off the school bus, cat chatters to the pigeons on our roof, and sniffs the air as the ice cream truck rolls by.

Open a sliding glass door partially. We open our heavy slider about two inches so Adventure Kitty can sniff around without physically being outside.

Bring kitty outside while being supervised. We open the slider and let Adventure Kitty venture onto the patio when we're outside petting the dogs or enjoying the cool evening breeze.

Open the windows and curtains to create a “sunny patch”. In the morning, the sun shines in the back slider at just the right angle that it hits the couch and the carpet, creating warm sunny patches. Adventure Kitty loves to lie in these! Place a blanket on the sunny patch to encourage the kitty to lay there and soak up the rays!


Always supervise your kitty when outside so she can't slip out of your sight.
