Let's Play!

An excerpt from Cat vs. Cat: Keeping Peace When You Have More Than One Cat

When you think of the benefits of daily play, compare it to an exercise regimen that you might have. If you engage in an activity only sporadically, it doesn't benefit you as much as if you did the proper amount on a regular basis. Doctors repeatedly advise us to do a little something every day. The same applies to your cats. Ideally, you should try to do two 15-minute interactive play sessions every day with your cats. Your kitties will love it.

Let's get started:

Playtime with pizzazz
Don't forget the sound effects
The successful pounce and capture
Wind the action down gradually
Don't send mixed messages to your cat
Play tips for timid cats
Playtime reminders
