I receive hints that it’s time when she comes around and sits on top of the sofa or starts to go places that she shouldn’t like behind the  TV or behind my audio equipment. I know that I have to stop what I’m doing to play with her for about 15 minutes. Playing provides valuable exercise for your cat.  If you have a kitten, keep dangerous items like plastic bags, string or small ingestibles away. This is the time to teach your kitten that your hands are not toys. your kitten should not try to “attack” your hands every time you reach out to stroke him.  Playing with your cat is a great way to help him maintain a healthy weight, it ‘s also a positive way for your cat to release negative energy and it strengthens the bond between the both of you. Keep a wide range of cat toys available. My cat loves wand and stick toys. She even takes out the one that she wants to play with. Mice with catnip in them are also good as well as items that make some kind of noise. Whatever toy you choose, your cat will certainly appreciate the play time!
