Playing with your cat

Thursday, October 4, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Believe it or not, indoor cats love to play. Playing is not only healthy for them, but it gives them a chance to bring our the hunter inside of them.  Cats are far sighted animals who really don’t see that well close up. They can detect movement from over 120 feet away, even in very dim light. Their ability to hear is way beyond humans and even dogs.  So how do you play with your cat? One of the best games involves waving feather wand toys or other cat toys that require your cat to leap in the air and try to capture the flying object in her front paws. Select a safe, spacious area of your home so that your cat does not fly into any furniture. My younger cat Millie plays with her feather toy every night. I also bought her a new toy and attached it to the end of the stick making it much longer and giving her the ability the leap high in the air. She loves it, it’s great exercise and keeps her healthy and happy.

Remember, your pets count!
