Your Cat's Toys
If cats could write wish lists, I wonder what they would put on it. Miss Kitty's list would definitely not be surprising to me. I would venture to say, some of our fur-friends would undoubtely include things like a giant bed...endless treats...or a devoted servant 24/7.
It's pretty safe to say that high on their list would be toys that they love. And surprisingly, finding that toy can be harder than you think. Each pet have their on likes, just as humans. If your pet totally ignore a toy, you've just purchased something wrong. There's no telling with cats. Sometimes they love to play and enteract with their parents, and at other times they simply can't be bothered.
One thing is for sure: when your cat's in the mood to play, nothing stands in her way. She'll jump up on top of the television...
push the newspaper out of your hands or even lay across the computer keyboard or, your work to get your attention, letting you know she's ready. Does this happen to you... yeah, they can be pushy little scamps, right?
Cats sometimes need a little encouragement to start playing (especially older cats) but they definitely need exercise to stay fit and healthy. Cats who don't get enough activity frequently becomes obese, which can lead to a host of health problems, even a shorter life.
Fortunately, engaging your cat doesn't have to be difficult. Most love to chase mice and small balls around the house. Even a simple string or swatting toys can hold interest for a time. They might lose interest quickly if the toy just sits around. It's a good idea to play with her several times to keep her active and trim.
Anyone who's spent a boatload of money on a disinterested cat can tell you that the hardest part about playing with her is finding a toy that she really likes.
If you are like me, you try hard to hole their attention.
Missy Kitty likes the lazar a lot. I grow tired holding it, whereas she can go for hours seemingly. I've shown you one other toy she favors...the nipped mouse, Here
I also homemake from yarn, little red balls leaving a short string on them for grasping and batting; the plastic cap from a milk jug, large rubber bands, and the ponytail thingy from my stash.These items holds her attention better that any of the toys in her toy box.
Most toys are boring for cats because they only do two things. Before you know it...she has lost interest again...how frustrating!
So, instead of buying what's hot on the market, especially if she's hard to please, try the simple inexpensive ones and introduce them to her. Too, your playing, showing interest... raises their interest, and that two dollar toy becomes a hit!
