Video: 10 Games For Your Cat
Games can teach your cat useful commands and fun tricks. Games will help you build strong relationships with each other and will also help your cat interact better with other pets.
Cats are usually very inventive when it comes to play, but sometimes their creativity needs some extra stimulation.
1. Table tennis without a table. The table tennis ball can be used for a variety of games. These balls make a funny sound when they hit hard surfaces, they are lightweight and won't hurt your cat or damage your furniture. If you have a long hallway, roll the ball along it while watching your cat try to catch it. If you don't have a hallway, roll the ball in the bathroom or any uncarpeted room in the house that has room to move.
2. Ball and labyrinth. Place a ping pong ball or other suitable size ball in the compartment of an egg carton, preferably one to two dozen eggs. Roll the ball from one cell to another, watching as your cat tries to get it from there.
3. Playing with a paper bag. Take the paper bag you usually wrap your purchases in and place it on the floor by clicking it. When your cat climbs inside and settles down, click on the bag to keep the cat interested in it. You can roll a paper ball into the bag and watch the cat trying to get it out of there.
4. Playing with a laser flashlight (pointer). Take a laser flashlight (pointer) and drive it with the light along the wall quickly and randomly. Watch your cat try to catch the sunbeam. It is better to dim the light in the room so that the light from the flashlight is more visible. Be careful not to direct the flashlight into the cat's eyes.
5. Work and play. When cleaning, tie a ribbon around your ankle. Your cat will chase the ribbon as you walk around the house. Be careful not to step on or fall on the cat accidentally.
6. Games with boxes. Tie together several different sized cardboard boxes that are large enough to fit your cat and turn around. Make holes on the top and sides between the boxes, as if constructing transitions between them through which the cat can move from one box to another. Throw a table tennis ball into one of the boxes while watching the cat try to catch up with it.
7. Ribbon and rug. Pull the tape under the rug so that the rather long end protrudes from the other end of the rug. Pull the tape towards you while watching the cat hunt for it.
8. Search for treasures. Purchase a special cat puzzle toy from the store. Place your favorite treat inside and watch the cat try to get it. You can make such a toy yourself from old gloves by hiding the treat in one of your fingers and tying them together. You can hide this toy in the house while watching the cat look for it.

9. Cat and mouse. Buy a wind-up children's toy in the shape of a mouse or a rat in the store and let it "run" on the floor, watching the cat hunt for it.
10. Fishing. One of your cat's favorite toys will be a "fishing rod" toy, which you can make yourself from a stick, fishing line and bait, as which you can use both small toys and the cat's favorite treats. You can control the bait with a fishing rod without even getting up from the chair, and your cat will try to catch it.
