How to Improve Your Bond With Your Cat
Make sure good things happen in your presence—think tasty treats
and playtime. Wand toys are great for interactive play. Make sure to allow your cat to complete the “kill” sequence so they feel satisfied. For skittish cats, a laser toy is a perfect hands-off way of engaging them in play while keeping your physical presence at a comfortable distance. Schedule multiple play sessions with your cat each day.
sessions are a great way to relax, check in with your cat, and get them used to being handled by you.
therapy (see page 22) can help your cat be more relaxed and friendly.
Make sure your house is
set up for your cat— think perches offering vertical space, engaging toys, and well situated (not hidden away) litter boxes.
