07 Feb Best Products to Keep Your Active Cat Happy
While most cats like to lounge around all day, there are some feline friends that can be very active. In order to keep your active cat happy, check out some of these awesome products.
If your cat gets bored easily and really loves food, then you can keep it motivated by using treat-based puzzles. This way, you can keep your cat entertained for hours, depending on the complexity of the puzzle. Usually, food puzzles have sphere-shaped places where you can put in treats that can only be accessed only after getting the right combination. It is great at keeping your feline’s curiosity and creativity at high peaks.
There are even more complex toys that are made of various parts that stimulate the natural hunting instinct of your animal.
Automatic devices encourage cats to use their hunting prowess to catch moving objects. Some are shaped like a box with various holes from where an object pops out at various intervals. Some have colored LED lighting, make chirping noises, or mouse squeaks to attract the cat’s attention. No matter the shape, your pet will see something moving and making noises and will think of it as a prey that can pounced and chased. Whether it comes in the shape of a ball or a mouse, it will surely entertain your cat and keep it active for hours, or until the battery runs out.
There are many types of scratching furniture designed for cats. Cats need scratching to stretch their muscles and sharpen their claws, plus they feel better when clawing away for minutes on end.
There are three main types of cat furniture: scratching posts, scratching bench, and cat trees.
Cat trees are the most stimulating for your purring friend, as they combine scratching posts, a jungle gym, holes for hiding, and other features depending on the model. Cats like to hide into various spaces and pounce, as well as climb, so the more levels you cat tree has and hiding spots, the more it will keep your active cat happy.
Lasers are an easy and cheap way to keep your cat’s adrenaline up for a lot of time. The red dot emitted by the LED laser will instantly attract the attention of your cat and it will trick it to keep trying to catch the “prey” and chase it all over the floor. The best thing is there is no way the cat can get injured, and you can use it outside in the grass, or indoors as well. LED lasers are easy to carry in your pocket, requiring significantly less pace than a cat tree.
There are even automatic cat lasers that have a timer where the cat plays for 15 minutes, but then it stops for half an hour to not overexert your kitten.
To keep your active cat happy, consider investing in some of these products mentioned above.
