Quality time with your cat is very important in order to strengthen the bond between you two. Here are some simple cat games you can try. These games are interactive and it will surely stimulate their senses so that they will not become sad due to boredom.
Yes, cats are actually capable of solving puzzles. These animals are known for their intelligence and quick wit. They also have a habit of mimicking human beings. You can create a simple puzzle for your cat to solve while you are away for school or work. You will need an old shoebox or any box of some sort. Take a cutter or a knife (be careful when handling this!) and then cut varying holes into the box lid. Then, fill the box with some of your cat’s favorite toys, a dash of catnip, and some very delicious treats. Seal the box and then let your cat enjoy the game as she tries to figure out a way to extract her favorite food and toys.
Feather With String
This is one of the easiest yet most effective toys you can give to your cat. You can simply purchase this toy at any pet store but it is just as easy to make your own. All you need is a stick or want, some string, and a feather. Tie the string to the feather. You can use multiple ones if you like. Tie the other end of the string to the wand and then you are all set. You can make your cat chase the feathered end. You can even add some bells or any other accessory that creates sound to the feather portion.
Yes, you read that right. The habit of fetching is not exclusive to dogs. Some intelligent breeds of cats enjoy playing fetch with their owners. You just have to teach them the concept but once they understand it, there is nothing that is stopping them from playing fetch with you all day long. You can also add a sprinkling over a toy of your choice and then use that to play fetch with your pet. He will surely love chasing after it and then delivering it back to you. Your cat will be more likely to participate in fetch in the future if you reward his behavior of bringing back the toy with praises and yummy treats.
