Why You Need Cat Toys?
Pet health is about more than diet and vet care - cat play is vital, and is one of the most important aspects of owning either a kitten or cat. You should play with your cat every day, if possible, and most vets and studies, including one from the PDSA* recommend two sessions of around 15-20 minutes play as a minimum. 1) It keeps your cat healthy
It may sound obvious, but if your cat is inactive it will gain weight and become unhealthy. Just like in humans. Play not only encourages your cat to move, and not just lie around and sleep, but it also stimulates their senses and improves their mood. 2) It creates a better bond
Cats that are played with tend to be more attached to their owners, and will therefore be more rewarding pets. If you don’t interact with your feline on a regular basis, they will lose interest in you, or simply view you as a provider of food. 3) It socializes cats cat play
Cat play not only exercises cats, it can also help to make them better behaved. A bored cat will explore on their own; it ll climb curtains, scratch sofas, and knock items off shelves. If you don t play with your cat they will make their own fun, and will exercise curiosity, so if you re concerned about your furniture and the general appearance of your home, socializing a cat through play is essential. 4) Play comforts cats
Life changes - it’s inevitable. Cats are creatures of habit, and when change happens (even if it’s temporary, like when you rearrange the furniture in a room for a couple of days), they get stressed out. Play can create a routine to help them cope with change, or it can distract them and make them feel more comfortable, helping them to overcome temporary stress that arises from change. If your cat is shy or hiding for some reason, a familiar toy can bring them out again, or allow you to get close enough to pick them up or comfort them.
