8 Fun Games Cats Love to Play
Anyone who has ever watched a funny cat video knows that kitties like to play. Cat games include batting at mirrors, tussling with dogs, and knocking stuff off shelves. Feline friskiness isn’t just hilarious to watch, it provides mental and physical benefits for your kitty too.
“There’s evidence that when cats have more mental stimulation, they’re actually sick less,” says Lisa Radosta, a board-certified veterinary behaviorist at Florida Veterinary Behavior Service and a host for Vet Scoop. “So providing toys and an environment that encourages exploration is a great way to let your cat entertain himself. But it’s also good to play with your cat. It makes you both happier and strengthens your bond.”
