May is National Pet Month! If you have a pet, you know how much joy they bring to your life. In fact, they’re part of your family! After a long day at work or school, they are there to cheer us up no matter what. As a pet-friendly apartment community in Charlottesville, Arden Place understands the importance of your pets and welcomes them with open arms! With that said, we’ve come up with some ways that you can celebrate your pet during National Pet Month.

Buy a New Toy

It’s no secret that pets love to play! So, whether you have a cat, dog, hamster, or bunny, get their favorite toy as a gift! Then, spend 30 minutes or so playing with them. This is a great way to give them some extra love.

Make or Buy their Favorite Treat

Does your pet have a favorite treat? Be sure to spoil them with their favorite goodies this month! Whether you make them a special treat or buy it from your local pet store, they’ll enjoy it. Check out Pinterest for treat recipes!

Relax Together

Maybe your furry friend wants to cuddle! With that said, kick back and relax on the couch with your pet for some much-needed relaxation. They’ll love getting cozy and spending time with you!

Spend Some Time Outdoors

It’s important to allow your pet to spend some time outdoors! Take them for a walk, let them out on your patio or balcony, or bring them to a local park. This benefits them and allows you to enjoy some time outside as well.

Play a Brain Game

It’s important, especially for animals like dogs and cats, to have mental stimulation as well as physical stimulation. With that said, there are plenty of games that make them think a little bit! While it’s not physical exercise, games that provide mental stimulation can often make them just as tired. Look online to find some activities that would work for your pet and give it a try!

From dogs and cats to birds and bunnies, no matter what pet you have, it’s time to celebrate them! During National Pet Month, try a few of these activities with your pet. They bring so much happiness and joy to our lives every day, and now it’s time to show our appreciation to them!
