- Increased Exercise Through Daily Play Sessions
In addition to managing calorie intake and providing adequate nourishment, exercise is essential for your cat to maintain a healthy weight. There are numerous alternatives for increasing cat exercise, even if they do not go outside.
Exercising your cat’s prey drive through interactive play is an important aspect of their growth and dramatically improves their quality of life. It’s also a great method to get your kitties moving.
Scheduled playtimes take place within the same hour or two every day and provide structure and consistency for your cat. It is a good idea to keep a variety of interactive toys on hand at all times, with some stored specifically for play sessions.
Having two or three wands or mice on string toys that are only available at these times will keep them interesting and exciting. These are excellent for simulating prey and can improve your cat’s natural drives.
