The other night husband and I were watching a TV show called “My cat from hell” and got very impressed by a stray cat that learned to sit on command in a very short period of time. There and then I decided that our cats should know how to do that.
Our cats are so dog-like already (beg for treats, drink from the toilet bowl, play catch, greet you with loud meows when coming home and so on). There were no instant results here, but we’ll keep working on it. Cats sleep an average 16 hours a day and when they don’t, you got to make sure they get enough exercise. They chase each other around the house, usually as soon as we go to bed at 10pm.
I play with my cats every day, no matter how pressed on time I am. Even if it’s just 5 minutes. Everyone has 5 minutes to dedicate for some play time. When you look at what cats do in the wild, it is obvious why they need to play. Play releases anxiety and boredom, creates a good feeling and bonding, as well as gives them healthy dose of exercise.
Your cat deserves it, right?
