Cats are notoriously big sleepers, but don’t let that fool you.
That innate predatory instinct never leaves them, and as natural athletes they always have plenty of energy to burn through.
Keeping cats energetic by maximising stimulation – especially while indoors – is vital for their development and well-being.
Their ancestors roamed the wild hunting for prey. If your feline friend is stuck inside roaming the living room with nothing to do, it won’t be long before they’re climbing the walls. Metaphorically, we hope.
Regular exercise is a great way of keeping our wannabe hunters healthy and happy. And what better way of exercising than through playtime?
Play sessions are fun, encourage mobility, and help prevent boredom and depression. And let’s face it, playtime isn’t just fun for our cats.
Nutrition plays an incredibly important role in keeping energy levels up, too.
Cats are obligate carnivores. Simply put: they are meat-eaters, and get a lot of their nutritional requirements from the meat they eat.
The proteins, vitamins and minerals that are found in animal meat enable cats to thrive. It is a biological necessity for them.
However, for your cat’s health to truly flourish, and with it their mood, food should always be naturally sourced.
Ideally, their food should contain real animal meat, natural ingredients and zero artificial preservatives.
A mealtime menu combining these, and you’re guaranteed to have one happy cat.
