Do you have a bored kitty that wishes they had more fun and excitement in their life? If so, we’re sure you would love to know how to keep your cat entertained while you’re at work or busy.
That’s why we’ve got your back with some paw-some ideas to beat the kitty blues!
Cats are prey-driven. Anyone who’s ever watched one knows how they love to stalk and pounce to their heart’s content.
If they’re allowed outside, some rambunctious cats may even try to chase after rabbits, birds, squirrels, and more!
With this in mind, if you have a purely indoor kitty, try to utilize this strong prey instinct to amuse and engage them.
After all, knowing what motivates them will enable you to keep your cat feline fine!
To get you started, we came up with two critters that will tantalize and tease!
Toys don’t have to cost a penny. Inanimate objects found around the house can look like animals to your cat. Snake-type shapes are perfect. Try string, ribbons of material, broken packing strapping, belts, or old ties. Wiggle them around. Your kitty will do anything to catch them.
If you have a tablet, most of them have virtual fish pond apps that display fish moving around on the screen – drives ‘em nuts! You can also buy toy fish that flip-flop around in a bowl of water and mechanical fish toys that jiggle around the floor when you turn them on. You’ll get a kick out of seeing your cat hunt down these fake fish!
