Cats are designed to be active in short bursts so incorporating playtime into their normal daily routine is a really great way to keep your cat fit and healthy, or encourage them to lose weight if they are overweight (a common problem in adult, indoor cats).

Most cats love toys they can chase, hit and pounce on and this can be done on even the smallest budget with a rolled up piece of paper, or a toy attached to a piece of string which you can drag across the floor. Scratching posts, cat towers, cardboard boxes and tunnels to run through will also keep your cat active, toned and prevent boredom setting in. Providing scratching equipment means your cat will also be less likely to damage your furniture and carpets, as well as keeping their nails a healthy length.
