Keeping your cat happy like Dr. Jonny
Love and attention, baby - we need it just as much as the next species. But we also like to live a little, so play with us. Toys are great. Some suggestions:
Your kitty will spend most of its time sleeping. But when he is awake and in a playful mood be sure to provide plenty of interesting toys to keep him or her occupied.
- The most popular toy for cats are those that have a wand or stick of some sort, with something dangling from the end, such as a string or a feather. You can make a toy like that yourself and have a lot of fun with your cat.
- Cat toys with an erratic movement are often a big hit with cats, too. This behavior is actually instinctual. It gets their attention because it is similar to the movements made by their prey in the wild.
- Most cats love to stick their paw inside something to try and get the object out, although they generally just spend a lot of time swatting at it. Balls that go around a track can keep a cat busy for minutes (which is a long time for a cat).
