How to help a cat lose weight?

A sedentary lifestyle rewards extra pounds not only us, but also our pets. Just imagine: in the wild, wild cats get their food daily, travel several kilometers, compete with their brethren. Of course, domestic cats are far from such leisure activities: ready-made food is always available in a bowl, and a soft bed is too attractive. The lack of physical activity in combination with an unbalanced diet inevitably leads to overweight, the danger of which should not be underestimated. Serious problems with the digestive, cardiovascular system and musculoskeletal system are just a few of the consequences of being overweight. Therefore, no matter how cute your replenished pet may seem, nobody has canceled the care of his health. So, we take the situation into our own hands!

Making a dog lose weight is much easier than making a cat. You can increase the duration of daily walks, start jogging together, often go on outdoor activities, etc. etc., however, no cat will appreciate such a leisure. But cat games are always welcome!

A balanced diet and active games are the most effective prevention of obesity. Therefore, having decided on the line of feed, go to the formation of active leisure of the pet. To help you – a huge number of special toys for cats, which are full of all modern pet stores. Choose those that make your lounger move more.

– Laser pointer or other toys with a laser beam. A rare cat does not want to catch up with the coveted red dot. Thanks to such toys, you will make your pet sweat properly, and with minimal energy costs for yourself.

– Clockwork toys. Various mechanical toys are also a great option. All you have to do is start them periodically. And then observe how a joyful pet rush after them. Among the most popular mechanical toys are feather wobblers and vibrating mice with catnip Petstages.

– Electronic toys. The true know-how of our time! Thanks to them, a happy and useful leisure for cats is provided, and your participation in the game is optional. Many electronic toys are equipped with special motion sensors and begin to work when the cat approaches them. Various pop-up teasers (feathers, etc.) will not leave the cat indifferent and make it spin around the toy properly.

– Track for cats. Very popular toys today! The track can consist of one “floor” or three (track 3 floors of Petstages), and the kit of toys can include various types of balls, and for night play (track Kittys choice). Cats simply adore catching rolling balls, which by no means get out of the toy. By the way, several cats can play simultaneously with one track.
– Teasers. Perhaps the most classic toy for playing a cat and owner together. Teasers with feather tails, teaser fishing rods, etc. etc. – all of them will surely captivate your pet, just tickle his curious nose.

By the way, toys are not only a guarantee of a good time, but also the protection of furniture, wallpaper and personal items from the sharp claws of your pet!

To prevent capricious cats from losing interest in games, get some toys and periodically alternate them.

Why do we recommend using special toys for cats? Are children’s toys or other items suitable for the pet? – Definitely not. Not all materials are safe for our pets. Plastic, for example, under the influence of teeth and claws crumbles into sharp particles and can injure animals, and soft toy fillers, once in the digestive tract, can lead to intestinal obstruction. Paint, harmful substances that are part of many materials, can cause serious poisoning, not to mention allergic reactions. That is why toys specially designed for cats are the best option. Thanks to them, you can not be afraid for the health of the pet.
