Fluffy’s Thanksgiving Agenda

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just around the corner! As you start preparing for the autumn holiday, your kitty may also have some plans of her own. Read on as a local Indianapolis, IN vet lists a few things that Fluffy may do on Thanksgiving Day.

Steal Chairs

Cats love to seek out warm spots to sleep in. Fluffy figured out long ago that a recently-vacated chair can make a nice, cozy napping spot. One scene we suspect will be repeated many times over on Thanksgiving Day: a guest will stand up to get something, and an opportunistic furball will immediately hop into the recently-vacated chair.


While some cats turn their cute little noses up at people food, others will be extremely interested in that holiday dinner. If you want to give your furry friend a special treat, offer her some cooked, plain turkey with the bones, fat, and skin removed. Chicken, beef, and fish are also fine. Fluffy may also enjoy a can of plain tuna in water, or perhaps some cat milk.

Lap Hop

Isn’t it interesting how cats are just the perfect size to curl up on our laps? While not all kitties are lap cats, many of them absolutely love snuggling up with their human pals. It’s probably safe to say that quite a few felines will move from lap to lap as the day progresses!


On the other end of the spectrum, we have scaredy-cats. Some kitties are quite shy, and will bolt for their favorite hiding spot as soon as the doorbell rings! If your furball is nervous around company, put her in a quiet back room with food, bedding, and toys, and just let her sleep peacefully until everyone is gone.

Nap On Coats

If you plan to have your guests put their coats and purses in a spare bedroom, you may want to keep the door to that room closed. Otherwise, there’s a good chance that you’ll find Fluffy curled up on someone’s jacket!

Public Grooming

Kitties certainly aren’t shy about going through their beauty rituals in public. We’re pretty sure that some of our feline pals will sit down in the middle of a room full of guests and nonchalantly start grooming themselves.
