Keeping Your Kitty Entertained

Is your cat sleeping right now? There’s a good chance that the answer to that question is yes. Kitties are quite drowsy, and can sleep up to 20 hours a day! However, even the sleepiest of our feline friends can’t spend all of her time dozing. In order to keep your pet happy and healthy, you’ll need to make sure she has suitable entertainment options to keep her occupied when she’s actually awake. Read on as a Moore, OK vet discusses keeping your kitty amused.

Toys

First and foremost, make sure that your feline buddy has plenty of fun toys to play with and push under the couch. Cats all have their own personal tastes, so experiment a bit to find out if your pet prefers plastic balls, catnip mice, or squeaky toys. To keep things fun and interesting for your kitty, change her toys out regularly. We also recommend playing with your cat regularly. This will be good for both of you!

DVDS

Did you know that you can order DVDs made just for kitties? Some cats are truly captivated by watching programs about birds and squirrels!

Cat Furniture

Get your pet some furniture that encourages her to stay active. Cat towers are great for this, as they offer kitties a napping spot, jungle gym, and scratching post. They also give cats the perfect place to sit and watch their human buddies. Many kitties also love playing in simple paper bags or cardboard boxes.

Window Seat

Although your housecat may never catch a single mouse or bird in her life, she’ll still be interested in watching local wildlife. Give your kitty access to a window with a good view, so she can sit and watch birds and squirrels. (Tip: you get bonus purrs if you put a comfy cat bed in your pet’s window seat.)

Kitty Garden

While we recommend that cats live indoors, there’s no reason you can’t give your kitty a taste of nature. Set out some pet-safe plants for your feline friend to nibble on and hide behind. Catnip is of course a great choice, but you can find many other nontoxic plants listed at the ASCPA website.
