I have a cat

Your cat means everything to you and you want to do all you can to make sure she’s contented.

Tips for a happy cat

Your cat means the world to you and you’ll obviously want her to be happy. So why not let her do the kinds of things she was made for: like climbing, jumping and, of course, hunting – even though it might just be for a make-believe mouse. A cat needs lots of space, especially if she cannot go outside. So make sure she has a good place – preferably as high as possible – from where she can survey her territory.

You want it to go well with your cat

Your cat means everything to you and you want to do all you can to make sure she’s contented. It’s why you'll always look for the optimum solution if you are going on holiday or are planning a weekend away. And did you know that we could help if she needs a trim or suddenly starts behaving strangely? Check out our offering here.

What if you're no longer there to care for your cat?

Within the framework of our “When you’re no longer there” arrangement, the DOA will assume responsibility for your cat if you die. This will give you the peace of mind that your feline companion will be in good hands, which in itself is very reassuring. It’s easy to register for the arrangement; simply complete the form and return it to us.

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 a cat has nothing to do she’ll make her 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. She’ll 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 as she goes.
