Last week we covered enrichment for dogs, but what about our feline friends? Keep your cat safe and happy by making life in your home both comfortable and interesting. Even if you don’t think your cat seems bored, it’s important to keep them stimulated. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Cats love to explore. For a free or low cost option, try providing a cardboard box, paper shopping bags, or even a slowly dripping water tap for them to investigate.
Another form of free entertainment is the great outdoors! Position bird and squirrel feeders outside windows where your cat can observe the commotion throughout the day.
Provide a variety of toys for your cat. Some cats prefer toys they can throw around themselves, while others prefer toys that require guardian participation. To keep your cat from getting bored, introduce new toys periodically and rotate between their old toys. An old toy can seem new again when they haven’t seen it in a while! Check out some exciting new toys available online from the Wisconsin Humane Society’s retail shop. All proceeds from their store benefit the animals!
