Cat Owners: Surprises Are Always Good

Boredom is a serious threat to life satisfaction. When you’re bored you simply feel as if life is a chore and any potential enjoyment in your day is sapped and sucked away. For cats, it’s much the same. They may seem as if they love to lounge around doing nothing but eventually they will will need to blow off some steam. Dogs seem to have a lot of energy throughout the day which makes them more of a handful but more predictable. You never quite know when your cat wants to play.

They only use their energy in small bursts. They don’t go running, instead, they tend to chase after objects that look like small prey. Small toy mice are a great fun way to get your cat to chase and run around. They will get to use their hind legs for sprinting and pouncing, helping their hip joints to stay strong and healthy.

There are plenty of proper cat toy options out there,  many are very cheap and will get your lazy cat to run around like a predator in its own paradise.
