In this busy day and age most people struggle to find time to do everything they want, and quite often spending time with the family cat is sacrificed for other things, such as TV and work. This is not only bad for your owner-cat relationship but also for your health and the health of your cat as pet owners who frequent with their pets are generally more healthy than non pet owners.
There are however some simple games that you can play with your cat that are fun for both of you, and do not require too much of your time.
3 Fun Games To Play With Your Cat
1) Cat's love to chase things, we all know this and know that they can not help themselves. Using either a torch or preferably a laser pointer, start waving the light in front of your cat and watch them chase after it. You can run the light in circles, across the room, up the walls and the cats just love it. Whenever i pick up the laser pointer they get really excited and start purring, it's great fun and lets you bond with your cat.
2) Another chasing game that gives you some exercise as well is to get a piece of string and move along with one end trailing behind you on the ground. Most cat's can not resist the urge to chase it and enjoy being able to pounce on it.
3) One game that younger cats enjoy is what i like to call hide and seek. Basically you hide behind something, get their attention, then duck back down and hide again. It's a bit like peek-a-boo with a small child but some cats enjoy it just as much.
