“There’s no downside to play,” says Jackson Galaxy from Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell. “Consistency is key. Do it every day.” For highly effective playtime with your cat, “you have to tap into what makes a cat tick,” he says. “That’s the trick.”
Cats were put on the planet to hunt and kill. Interactive toys that mimic prey like mice, bugs and birds will delight your kitty during playtime. Reward your cat with a meat treat once they catch their “prey,” which also signals playtime is over, Galaxy suggests. Ideally, you should aim for 10-15 minutes of play a few times a day to keep your cat’s muscles toned and his mind alert.
