At the age of 3 months, kittens begin to actively play. At this moment, the owner must direct this endless energy that has arisen in the right direction. In order for the kitten’s toys not to become the things of its owner, you need to “hand over” the pet to his personal, cat toys. You can buy them at any pet store or make your own. The simplest and most elementary toys are a bow tied to twine or an elastic band, a plastic bag, a ball of crumpled newspaper, a paper airplane, and various balls.
But it is best if the owner himself takes part in games with his pet. Such games will not only help to have fun, but also to establish warm and friendly relations with the pet.
Table tennis game
In order to play this game you need a regular ball. You need to throw it on any hard surface, and the resulting sound will attract the attention of the kitten. The ball is best rolled around the room or along a long corridor. The kitten will run after him and be in constant motion, which is very useful for his development.
Playing with the package
You need to take an ordinary paper bag, open it, put it on the floor and start clicking on it with your finger. The kitten will immediately climb inside and begin to play with the rustling bag.
The game “Ball in the maze”
From several boxes of different sizes, you can build a real maze. Inside, it is necessary to cut holes in the walls and launch the ball there. In pursuit of the ball, the kitten will make his way from one box to another and get real pleasure from such a “hunt”.
Playing with a laser pointer
In order to awaken the hunting instinct in a small predator, you just need to run a red laser on a wall or floor. The kitten will immediately rush to catch the “sunny bunny”, and its owner will only have to draw in the air with a laser pointer the flight path of the impromptu “victim”.
Treasure hunt game
For this game you will need old gloves. In one of the “fingers” you need to put your kitten’s favorite treat, and then give him the resulting puzzle. A sufficiently trained animal can not only quickly get a treat, but also find the toy itself, hidden in the house.
A very interesting and energetic game that requires an impromptu fishing rod and a treat tied to a string for a kitten. The owner must control the fishing rod, raising it up and down, make the kitten catch the “bait”.
