Why Play With Your Cat?
Far from being "aloof," your cat actually craves attention
from you! Playing is a natural feline behavior, and interacting with your cats through play makes them very happy.
Playing with cats is also healthy for humans
: studies have shown that interacting with an animal reduces stress and increases happiness. You probably already know that from your own experience!
But you should never use your bare hands
to dangle in front of your cats; you don't want to train them to attack people's hands! Always use toys specifically designed to be safe for playtime with kitty.
And just like us, cats have varying personalites, so different cats like different kinds of toys. Some like dangly toys on strings, others like the "red dot" of a laser pointer toy. Your cat may even want to play fetch with you. All the toys on this page are cat-approved and provide a great way for you to interact with your feline companions!
Ain't life with cats great?!
