Sometimes in the course of our work, we meet a cat parent who claims their cat isn’t very playful. But then when we care for that kitty, we find that they actually do enjoy play. (Not every time—sometimes the cat truly isn’t interested in play, and that’s fine.) But we find that many kitties can be enticed to play, with the right methods.
Playtime is a very important aspect of keeping cats happy and healthy. However, not every cat parent instinctively knows how to get their cat to play. It’s mostly a matter of figuring out what sort of prey instinct your cat has, and bringing it out. Here are some tips:
Once you figure out how to get your cat’s prey instinct to kick in, tons of fun are sure to follow! Be sure to let Fluffy catch the prey once in a while; otherwise it can seem futile to them and they will lose interest. Always praise them when they catch it, so they know you are impressed with their prowess. Happy playing!
