A bored cat is not a happy cat. Making sure your furry friend is mentally stimulated and engaged through cat play will make them happier and is likely to bring you more peace too, especially if your cat is showing destructive behaviours like shredding your curtains or digging up your potted plants.
However, as much as we value having them in our lives, it’s easy to take our pets for granted. Your senior cat, on the other hand, appreciates every single thing you’ve ever done. Why not return the favor?
