10 things your pet loves

Cats and dogs are just like people. Just like us, they love good food, napping or being active and we all turn our noses at stale meals, dull days and cold beds. But they also get super happy with the following things!

Dog hobbies

1. Build sleeping nests

Do you ever wonder why your dog does 20 laps before he lies down in his bed? He first flattens the ground and spreads his scent. Not only does the spot smell like him now, because of all that twisting, it also has the ideal temperature and shape for his body.

2. Watch TV

Dogs love to watch TV! They cannot see the images themselves well, but the light, sound and movement stimuli provide a mental stimulus for your dog. It would even temporarily prevent boredom.

3. Listen to music

Dogs are fascinated by sound and music also seems to influence their emotions. Dogs can become calm from classical music and restless from heavy metal. They respond best to music with a voice.

4. A private dinner

Eating alone is heaven for dogs. They prefer to be left completely alone while eating. It really is a private moment for them.

5. Being near you

Does your dog ever sit uncomfortably close to you or on your feet? By sitting so close to you, they show other dogs that they have claimed this human and spread their scent on the owner.

Do cats have hobbies too? zzzzz.....yes!

Cat Hobbies

1. Sleep

Cats sleep about 12 to 16 hours a day. Being nocturnal by nature, they will do this during the day for the most part.

2. Wash and be washed

Paws, back, butt and back to the paws; washing keeps your cat's coat and skin clean and healthy. In addition, it spreads important oils over the hair and your cat is relaxed.

3. Sharpen the nails on a scratching post

Scratching is also a way of marking territory thanks to the scent glands found in cat's paws. In addition, cats can stretch themselves with a long scratching post!

4. Birdwatching

Cats love to peer out the window for hours at all the exciting fluttering and chirping. No backyard or front yard? On YouTube you will find videos with fluttering garden birds, especially for cats.

5. Observation points

Your cat is descended from a feral cat. The African Wildcat, the ancestor of the domestic cat, likes to peek out from trees for its prey or territory. Your house tiger also loves to look down on its terrain from a great height. Scratching castles, the stairs and cupboards are wonderful places.
