How to Im­prove Your Bond With Your Cat

Modern Cat - - Behaviour -

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.

Daily groom­ing

ses­sions are a great way to re­lax, check in with your cat, and get them used to be­ing han­dled by you.

Pheromone

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.
