It is okay
if your cat is always sleeping. Most cats spend their daytime
sleeping. They reserve their energy for night-time playing and
hunting. Since you must sleep at night, you should make your cat play
during the day too. The playing activity will make your cat tired,
and both of you can sleep without any disturbance.
for health issues
if your energetic cat suddenly seems to be uninterested in playing
games, and does not look towards toys, take it to the veterinarian.
There could be health issues involved in making the cat lethargic.
If your cat loves to stay indoors, it is your responsibility to give
it exercise. Your job is to stimulate it so that the cat exercises.
To do this, you have to change the immediate environment.
the correct toy
find toys which your cat likes. This is tricky as each cat has a
unique taste and all are picky. It is not sufficient to have a house
filled with cat toys. Your cat would like a particular toy and
exclude all others. To understand what to buy, carefully observe your
kitty. If it is unmoved by a mechanical mouse but jumps up when it
sees a dangling toy, you know what to buy. Do not hesitate to buy a
few kinds of toys to find out the kind of toys it likes best.
It is not
enough to buy your cat toys. You must play with it too. This is
critical to make your lazy cat an active animal. The toys are fun,
but your cat will be joyous if you play with it. Buy a laser pointer
and switch it on to activate the natural prey instincts of your cat.
A wand toy is also a good buy in this regard. Hide the toy sometimes
to encourage your cat to search and hunt. Give a treat at the end. It
will make the cat feel that he has hunted down the prey. Buy a few
battery operated toys; these are excellent if your kitty loves to
pounce on things. Some battery toys can be set with a timer so that
they become active even when you are not at home. You can give food
puzzles to your cat so that the kitty's meal times are not only
delicious but adventurous too.
premium quality food for your cat. Giving it cheaper food mean it
does not get all the nutrients needed to be active and healthy. Speak
to the veterinarian about your kitty's particular dietary
requirements. Get suggestions on what type of food would be the best
for your cat. Remember to give your furball enough water as
dehydration leads to lethargy.
