How To Keep Your Senior Cat Active

October 11/2018 is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day.  

Keeping a senior cat active is not always easy. My three 14 year old cats love to sleep.  I make sure they get exercise each day by introducing new toys and games.  

Mookie loves to play in tunnels and his triangle toy.

The boys decided that the scratching post is more fun when it’s tipped over.

Turn treat time into a game too.  Instead of putting the treats on the floor, throw a piece across the room to get the cats running.  My cats love this game.

No matter what your cats like to play with, take time each day to make sure they are getting both physical and mental exercise.
