Tips for Cat Owners:
The best way to make sure your cat is ready for apartment living is to make sure that they are strictly indoor pets. The most content apartment cats have been kept indoors since they were kittens. However, if your cat is used to coming and going, it’s important to bring elements of the outdoors into your apartment for a smooth transition. Grow cat grass indoors in planters so that your feline friend can still graze.
Cats are curious creatures. If left without entertainment or something to actively engage with, it’s possible that your cat will end up scratching furniture or damaging other belongings. Investing in a cat tree (aka: a kitty condo) can keep your pet entertained and have something to climb on without destroying your furniture. Cat trees come in a variety of sizes and are easily customizable. Keep the cat tree near a window so your kitty can see what’s going on outside. When you are home, be intentional about taking the time to play with your cat every day. There are all kinds of toys that will pique your cat’s interest and get them in the mood for playtime. Be sure to keep a bundle of different cat toys on hand!
When considering litter box options, we recommend using a covered litter box to give your cat some privacy and reduce messes. If you want ultimate convenience and easy clean up, there are even covered self-cleaning litter box. Make sure the litter box is located in a somewhat secluded location so your kitty feels comfortable using it.
Tips for Dog Owners:
The most obvious hurdle when living in an apartment is that you’re not likely to have a private, fenced yard and a doggy door so that your pup can run outside for a potty break. Pet owners at our Sunrise, FL apartments must be more deliberate and creative when it comes to potty breaks. The first trick is to keep your dog on a regular schedule. Try to feed and walk your dog at the same time(s) every day. This will regulate your dog’s digestive system. Keep a puppy pad or a “potty lawn” assessible to your dog at all times in case you’re not around to take it outside.
Another reason why you should regularly schedule walks is to make sure your dog is getting the exercise it needs. While the required amount of exercise depends on the breed and size of your dog, the general recommendation is 3 to 5 walks per day. A convenient feature of our Sunrise, FL apartments is our on-site pet park. This fenced green area is the perfect place for your pup to run and play off-leash! If you don’t have the time to take your pup on walks, you can use dog walking services like Wag! or Rover to ensure your dog is getting the attention it deserves.
