Cats’ preference for routine

Do you ever notice how your feline friend seems to thrive on routine? Cats are creatures of habit, and they feel most comfortable when their environment is predictable and consistent. From meal times to play sessions, cats prefer to have a set schedule that they can rely on. One reason for this preference for routine is that cats are territorial animals. They like to know what to expect in their territory, and a consistent routine helps them feel secure in their surroundings. By sticking to a schedule, you can help reduce your cat’s stress and anxiety levels, leading to a happier and healthier pet. So, next time you feel like mixing things up for your cat, remember that they may actually prefer the comfort of a familiar routine. Stick to a schedule that works for both of you, and watch your cat thrive in their predictable environment.
