Who says you can’t teach a cat tricks? Teach using treats. The engagement is what it is all about. Get creative and engage your cat with learning.
Call their name and treat them when they come as a reward. Take it up a notch and hide, then call their name. Reward!
Food search! In nature, the behavior that occupies the majority of cats’ time is searching for food. Indoor cats have this same instinctual urge. If it’s possible in your home, hide little bits of food all around the house so your cat can do the normal feline “work” of finding food. It’s an enjoyable activity that gives your cat something interesting to do and satisfies that particular aspect of a cat’s nature.
Provide cat furniture for climbing and adventure! You can buy ready-made cat trees and other furniture that range in cost from cheap to expensive. Some cats are just as happy with cardboard boxes to investigate and play in. There are a ton of ideas online with instructions for making your own cat furniture; simply do a search for “how to make cat furniture” or check out Pinterest.
Grow wheat grass for your cat to munch on. You can purchase pet wheat-grass kits either online or at pet supply stores.
