One of the most common reasons for behavior problems in cats is boredom. Most of us keep our kitties indoors-only, providing our them with food, shelter, medical care and of course, lots of love. Perfect, right? Well, not if you’re a cat, genetically programmed to spend time everyday hunting for your food.
Enter environmental enrichment. Your cat will benefit hugely from having to work for his food, at least a little. This is what this Cat Treat Maze by Catit offers.
If your cat has no weight issues, just toss in a few treats and let Kitty figure out how to fish them out. If your cat is overweight and you’re trying to limit the amount of food consumed, it’s best to use some of the food allotted for him for the day. Kibble works perfectly for that end. If you’re feeding wet food only, consult your veterinarian about which treats to provide Kitty with, and how much of them you can give.
One thing is for sure, having to “hunt” for food or treats will keep your cat busy and happy!
