Cat Boredom and Exercise Solutions

Is your cat a little chonky? You keep your cat indoors so they are safe but they are not getting the daily exercise that they need to stay healthy? Why not consider an excercise wheel specifically for your cat?.

Cat Exercise Wheel!

I am sure there are quite a few difference varieties of cat exercise wheels. These look fantastic and would be a great product to keep your cat active and happy.

Cat Exercise Wheel

The most important thing you can do to prevent boredom in your cat is to make sure their environment is stimulating. This means an environment with things to do – windows to look out of, things to watch, places to climb and safe toys to play with. Climbing posts, scratching posts, cat grass, windows perches, window beds, and a view of birds or squirrels to watch are all great ways to enrich your cats life and prevent boredom. In nature cats would use their energy to hunt. That hunting requires short bursts of energy then they’d spend the rest of the time sleeping and grooming. Without the need to hunt prey they need other outlets for that pent up energy. It’s good for cats to get some sort of workout and changing it up to keep them interested is important.

adaptil diffuser

Adaptil Diffuser

The Adaptil diffuser can help your dog to deal with new or stressful situations. This can be anything from trips to the vets or a new home environment. Dogs exhibit certain behaviour such as barking, whining, toileting inside and shying away from contact.

Whilst a certain amount of apprehension is normal during a stressful environment, extreme anxiety can have a negative effect on your dog. Moving house or a fear of fireworks and thunder can lead to a dog with fearful aggression or anxiety. Adaptil uses a synthetic form of the Dog Appeasing Pheromone, which has a calming affect on dogs.
