Everything about cats
Did you know...that after bringing your cat home for the first time it’s best to expand your his or her new domain gradually, room by room?
At DOA, every cat with an owner supports a cat without one.
Because every person and animal is different, we have something for everyone.
We’ve been Amsterdam’s go-to animal friend since 1901.
Have fun playing with your cat!
Did you know that three-quarters of Amsterdam’s indoor cats are bored? So much so sometimes that it can make them lethargic and even sick. A cat that isn’t allowed to hunt (enough) has to be stimulated through other means. Otherwise, that boredom will rise to the surface and result in a lot of mischief. If cats have nothing to do, they will make their own fun, like hanging from the curtains, for example!
A cat that gets to go out regularly will have few worries about a lack of stimulation. He or she will see, hear and smell plenty of new things. A cat that spends all day inside, on the other hand, will need other distractions. And you can help in this respect. Set aside a few minutes, twice a day, to play with your cat. Find out what she likes and change her toys on a regular basis. Conceal some catnip in the room and open a window to allow new smells in. Put some shelves up in the room so that your cat can climb across it, enjoying the view from different angles.
