Every now and then your cat will start zooming around your home. It doesn’t matter what time of day it is. There are still times when you want to make sure your cat gets plenty of activity.
Make Mealtime Fun
One idea is to make mealtime more fun. Your cat will probably enjoy hunting even if it has small meals throughout the day dispensed from an automated feeder. Instead of relying on one central location for your cat’s feeder, hide small bowls of food throughout your home. This is much more complicated to do if you live in an apartment, though. You can also use puzzle feeders to turn mealtime into a game, especially if you have other pets who like to steal food from your cat.
Play Games for Treats
Likewise, play games to make your cats earn treats. Hide and seek is a fun way to get your cat more active. As with food, turn treat time into another game and get them to play with their toys.
Dogs get walked and that provides a form of exercise for them. Cats need to be exercised too, though! Balls, strings, and catnip toys can all be a way to exercise your cat. You never know what your cat is in the mood to play with, maybe bottle caps, bits of paper, and even a pen that is left on the ground!
