There are a few things in this world that cats like more than a fresh meal.
In this video, we will discover the top 12 things cats love.

#1. Scratching!
We have all seen how our furniture looks like after a cat gets to it with their claws. Scratching is one of the instinctual behaviors that your cat does for fun, to sharpen their claws, and to mark their territory within the home. If this behavior is becoming a problem, we recommend that you place some scratching posts around for them, especially near their favorite scratch spots. Playing with them during the day to release their energy might also help reduce this behavior.

#2. Sunbathing!
Does your cat have a favorite spot on the windowsill? Basking in the sun during the day is a favorite pastime of kitty cats. This is because cats like temperatures of 20 degrees higher than humans ideal temperature. They seek out heat and when they find it, they like to nap in that spot. This could be by any heat source, such as a portable heater, a computer, or on top of a heating vent.
#3. Observing!
Cats can spend countless hours staring out a window and watching the world go by. They are fascinated with objects that get blown around by the wind, insects, people, and birds. If you have an indoor cat and they are alone, definitely open up your blinds and give them a spot on the windowsill so that they can be entertained.

#4. High Spots!
Cats love to sleep in high places as this protects them from getting ambushed unexpectedly. They also love to view the world and everything that goes on around them from these high spots. Consider purchasing a cat patio with multiple levels so that they can climb, or try purchasing multi-level cat towers, climbing nets, and high shelving to let them explore this desire.

#5. Having Their Butt Scratched
Has your cat ever walked up to you, turned around, and presented their tail end? Good! This area right above the tail is where a cat cannot use its paws or tongue to scratch.
Some cats love to back up against a dangling hand if they want a good scratch.

#6. Sleeping!
Cats sleep 15-16 hours on average in a day! When they are sleeping, avoid bothering them, as this will ensure that you dont stress them out or harm their wellbeing. If your cat is just a kitten, definitely make sure that they get undisturbed sleep.

#7. Running water
Cats love drinking water from running faucets.
This is because your cat might instinctively be suspicious of stagnant water, realizing that still water isn't always safe as bacteria and microbes grow exponentially in them.
The running water from the tap also probably tastes better because it's cooler and oxygenated.
Fortunately, there are lots of drinking fountainsdesigned for catsto provide fresh, cool, and running water for your pet.

#8. Hunting!
You wont find any cat that doesnt get the urge to hunt. For most cats, this is going to be in the middle of your night, and while this is unfortunate, dont discourage it. Do not yell at them, or look on in revulsion when they bring you their prized catch, as this innate need helps them survive. Stalking prey is thrilling to them and it would be a shame to try and prevent it.

#9. Being Petted!
Cats love affection despite being pretty independent. Generally, they will ask to be petted, so do not force it. Cats can be sensitive to touch, so if they growl, hiss, bat at you, or do a tail flick, stop immediately.

#10. Play Time!
Cats will play with toys, with you, or with objects that intrigue them like bottle tabs, crinkly bags, and straws or string. Dont just rely on toys to ensure their happiness though, it is better to spend time with them if you can.

#11. Food!
Cats adore food. They will eat fresh food that is newly opened. But they wont touch it after that. Cats need to eat daily, but not in the same way as dogs do. If your cat is picking at their food, they are telling you they dont like it because it may be stale.
To keep your cat healthy, regularly change up their diet and incorporate small, healthy treats every once in a while. This ensures that they feel loved and cared for.

#12. Spending Time with Family.
While cats are considered independent and are often left alone, they do enjoy spending time with their family. Cats will greet you at the door when you arrive, cuddle with you before bedtime, and lick you to show their affection.

Now that you know what your cat loves the most, make sure to make time to incorporate them into their daily lives. They will thank you for it and be healthier for it.
