A daily frolic for your feline friends reaps healthy rewards.
Fetch,chase and catch all sounda like games you would play with a puppy.But your kitten needs an exercise routine too.These games can help you begin a lifetime of healthy fun for you and your fuzzy feline.
Without your encouragement,your kitten can become bored and stop taking the initiative to play as they grow older.And contrary to popular belief,cats don't necessarily get all the exercise they need playing by themselves.
your cats may need a little push,depending on their age and breed.For example a Siamese kitten may play non-stop,while a Persian may prefer a quiet nap in the windowsill.
Just as humans,exercise for cats is an important step toward good health and a balanced life.After all,regular exercise helps prevent obesity,improves your felines physical condition,teaches social skills and helps prevent bad behvior.

Puff looked like a wonderful cat, Lavina. When I had cats, we would use the paper bag and drive them wild...they never liked cat nip so we never spent the money to get one of those mice toys, but out last cat loved shoe laces (he would go flip flopping holding onto the whole shoe to get that shoelace).
