Just like people, cats need regular physical activity to maintain their health. By chasing after toys and each other, cats get the much-needed exercise that can help them to live longer and more fulfilling lives
Of course, the ultimate goal of cats getting regular exercise through play is that they will be more physically fit and will have fewer health problems as they age
Cats are intelligent creatures, adapting to their environment. In the wild, they're both predator and prey, but at home, they establish routines for a comfortable life.
You’ve probably heard that cats always land on their feet. And that’s mostly true. The height of the fall and a cat’s physical health are both a factor
When we play with our cats, they begin to see us as a part of their “litter.” Regular play reinforces this bond and deepens our relationship with our cats
Animals are prone to many of the same emotions that we are, like stress and boredom. If you’re bored from sitting around the house all day, your cat might be too
Play is beneficial for cats with behavior issues like aggression. It redirects their energy to appropriate outlets, such as toys and scratchers, instead of harmful behaviors towards their owners or furniture.
A cat who doesn’t get regular play will often become depressed and begin to sleep more and more throughout the day. Cats should sleep around 12 to 16 hours per day
Playtime with your cat is essential, especially if she's the only pet. It provides mental and physical stimulation, mimicking interactions with other cats and promoting activity and sociability.
At the end of the day, play time should be fun for both cat and owner. It can be so entertaining to watch your cat’s eyes light up at the sight of his favorite wand toy
By using your imagination and keeping it fresh, you’ll find so many ways to keep yourself and your cat entertained.
