Cute Ways to Entertain Your Cat

Did you know that kitties can—and do—get bored? Although Fluffy spends a rather excessive amount of time napping, she can’t spend all her time dreaming about chasing mice. In fact, making sure your pet is getting enough enrichment and entertainment is very important! If your cat doesn’t have any ways to amuse herself, she’ll get restless and unhappy. A local Green Bay, WI vet discusses entertaining your feline pal in this article.

Toys

First and foremost, offer your cat lots of fun playthings to pounce on and attack. Kitties all have their own unique tastes, of course. Some like catnip mice, while others prefer crinkly toys or glittery balls. Offer Fluffy a variety and see what she likes best. It’s also important to rotate your pet’s toys regularly.

Window View

Birdwatching ranks pretty high on Fluffy’s list of things to do. If you can, make your kitty a comfy window seat in a spot with a good view.

Plants

Fluffy loves sniffing green plants and nibbling on the leaves. She also enjoys hiding behind plants and perhaps pretending she’s a lion in the jungle. Set out some pet-safe plants for your kitty. Some good options are Spider plants, Boston ferns, and Rubber trees. You’ll find many more great choices at the ASPCA website here.

Purrniture

Kitties are very curious, if not downright nosy. Fluffy will enjoy having nooks and crannies to explore. Set out cardboard boxes and paper grocery bags for her, and offer her newspaper tunnels and pet tents to investigate.

Catio

Do you have a spare room, sunroom, or enclosed patio? Make it a catio by putting your feline friend’s toys, furniture, and garden in it. Instant purr!

Playtime

While toys are very important, you should also take time to play with your furry pal every day. This will be fun for both of you. After all, there are few things that are more adorable than a frisky feline hard at play!

Cat TV

Did you know that you can find programs made just for Fluffy? Your pet may actually take quite an interest in watching documentaries about birds, mice, and other small animals. (Then again, she may not even notice the entertainment selection. With cats, you really never know.)
