Creating The Ultimate Catio
Another fantastic option for indoor cats is a catio. This pet game is an enclosed outdoor area for your cat to spend time in. They can be safe and outside at the same time. They’ll be able to see what is happening outdoors and get some fresh air too.
You can include many fun activities into a catio, including shelves that they can climb, hammocks to sit in, and even some grassy areas. You could also plant some cat-friendly plants like catnip for them to munch on when they are out there.
Since your cat is indoors, they won’t be able to chase real-life mice and other creatures. To let them have a bit of fun, buy a wind-up or battery operated toy. They look like small rodents, and your cat can chase them around the house.
For these toys, it is best to use them on the floor, and your cat will have a great time pouncing and working on their stalking skills. These toys have erratic movements, so they’ll be very stimulated and entertained when playing with this toy.
Another indoor pet that needs a lot of stimulation and fun activities is a parrot. They are amazing creatures, and they need to be looked after. One important thing is to let them stretch their wings outside of their cage occasionally.
This indoor pet game will keep them a lot happier and very entertained. When you let them out, make sure that the room is secure, and none of your other pets are in the place. Also, ensure that your windows are closed so that you prevent any flight risk.
When they are in their cage, they need many things to entertain them. Make sure you have lots of interesting toys hanging inside that they can play with and chew on. You could even get a foraging tree for your parrot for much excitement.
Another great toy to hang in their cage is a mirror; it will almost create the illusion of them having a friend in there with them. Pet stores have a wide variety of toys to keep your flying friend entertained, even when they are in their cage.
Last but not least, when you aren’t going to be at home and won’t be able to talk to your bird, you should leave a radio or television. This background noise will keep them company and entertained when you aren’t at home.
You might think it’s a good idea to put on the nature channel, but predator sounds might scare your parrot. Stick to the news or a sitcom channel with lots of human noises that will keep your parrot occupied until you get home.
Our pets are like part of the family, and we want to ensure that they are always happy, healthy, and of course – entertained. There are so many fantastic options to make this happen, and some of them don’t cost you anything at all.
Pets love having our attention and care. When you play with them indoors, make it count, and make it an experience that you both enjoy. Taking the time to do an activity with them will make your day so much better and theirs.
