Benefits of Interactive Toys for your Cat
Why are interactive toys good for your cat? Because your furry friend needs exercise! The life of your cat might seem like an absolute dream, lounging around and sleeping approximately 12 to 16 hours a day, but they do need exercise to stay healthy (particularly indoor cats). According to APOP (Association for Pet Obesity Prevention) 58% of pet cats are overweight, which can lead to an array of health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, some cancers and high blood pressure. Motivating a cat to get active can be a tricky task, but interactive toys are an excellent way to stimulate their natural instincts.
Your fluffy little kitten may look super cute, but don't be fooled as they are a well adapted carnivorous predator with instincts to hunt. Without the appropriate outlet for them to hunt they can either become lazy or turn your furniture (or other valued items) into their prey. Interactive toys such as a teaser wand with colourful natural feathers will catch your cat's attention and stimulate their natural hunting instincts. Not only will this promote healthy exercise, but will also allow them to release aggression reducing potential behavioural problems and anxiety.
Perhaps one of the best reasons interactive toys are great for your cat? Because it increases the bond between you and your furry friend. They get to exercise while they play with you, creating a connection between you and your kitten. Toys help to create and fun and safe environment for your pet, and encourages your cat's physical and mental well-being.
