Cute Ways to Keep Your Cat Entertained
April 15, 2021

Are you constantly plucking your cat off of bookshelves, or fishing her toys out from under the couch? Kitties are very playful, which makes them very fun and entertaining little pets. Of course, you can’t spend all your time playing with your feline friend, so you’ll need to provide her with ways to amuse herself. A Kerrville, TX vet lists some cute ones below.


T  oys

No surprises here: the best way to keep Fluffy amused is to offer her lots of fun toys. Keep in mind that cats all have their own preferences here. Some like wand toys, while others prefer catnip mice or laser pointers. Pay attention to what your furry friend plays with the most.


Modern Gadgets

Fluffy must have made friends in the retail and technology sectors, as there are plenty of fun modern options for kitty entertainment. You can get things like remote-controlled mice, mechanical swimming fish, or automated laser pointers. Your furball may also enjoy playing games on your tablet, or watching cat TV!


Window Seat

Cats are predators by nature, and they are fascinated by the small animals they would hunt in the wild. Make sure Fluffy has at least one good window seat to look out of. For extra purrs, choose one that offers a view of birds and squirrels. Or, better yet, put a birdhouse up in her line of sight.


Boxes

Fluffy just can’t resist the opportunity to hop into and explore a new box. Offer her fresh ones to play in sometimes. Paper bags will also entice your frisky little pet.


Kitty Furniture

You don’t have to break the bank buying pet furniture. However, Fluffy should have a few fun pieces, such as a scratcher or cat tower. Move these things around regularly to keep things fun and fresh for your kitty.


Plants

We recommend keeping cats indoors, but Fluffy can still enjoy a taste of nature. Set out some pet-safe plants for her to nibble on and hide behind. Check the ASPCA site here for suggestions. You can even grow cat grass seeds in a storage tote and make your furball her own little lawn.


You

Of course, Fluffy’s favorite form of entertainment is you. Pay lots of attention to your kitty and keep that motor going!
