🔺Fun activities to do with indoors with high energy cats
Indoor activities for high-energy cats can help keep them mentally and physically stimulated. Here are some fun ideas:
1. **Interactive Toys:** Invest in interactive toys like feather wands, laser pointers, or puzzle feeders. These toys engage your cat’s hunting instincts and provide mental stimulation.
2. **Chase and Pounce:** Use a feather toy or a string with a small toy attached and mimic prey movements for your cat to chase and pounce on.
3. **Hide and Seek:** Hide treats or pieces of kibble around the house for your cat to find. This engages their sense of smell and provides a scavenger hunt experience.
4. **Cat Trees and Climbing Structures:** Cats love to climb and explore. A cat tree or shelves mounted on the wall can provide exercise and a new perspective on their environment.
5. **Interactive Laser Play:** Safely use a laser pointer for your cat to chase. Always end the game with a tangible toy or treat so your cat feels like they “caught” something.
6. **Paper Bags and Boxes:** Cats often enjoy playing in and exploring paper bags and cardboard boxes. Cut holes in boxes to create a kitty maze.
7. **Feather Teasers:** Feather toys or toys with dangling feathers can captivate your cat’s attention and encourage them to jump and swat.
8. **Catnip Play:** Many cats are sensitive to catnip. Use catnip-filled toys or sprinkle a bit on scratchers to entice play.
9. **Interactive Cat Apps:** Some smartphone apps are designed for cats with moving objects or critters on the screen that your cat can “hunt.”
10. **Treat Puzzles:** Use treat-dispensing toys or puzzle feeders to make your cat work for their food. It’s mentally stimulating and can slow down their eating.
11. **Bubbles:** Blow cat-safe bubbles for your cat to chase. Ensure the bubbles are non-toxic and suitable for pets.

12. **Music and Nature Sounds:** Play calming music or nature sounds to create a soothing atmosphere for your cat. Some cats enjoy watching “bird videos” designed for cats on a TV or tablet.
Remember to supervise playtime and provide a variety of activities to keep your cat engaged and happy. Always prioritize your cat’s safety and avoid small objects that could be swallowed or pose a choking hazard.
