I don’t share my home with a cat right now, but one thing I know for sure, most cats love to play. My creativity in playing with cats, however, doesn’t extend far beyond dangling a piece of string for them to bat. If you’d like to discover unique ways to play with your cat, check out this book:

Fun and Games for Cats by Denise Seidl by Veloce Publishing.

Do you have a cat who turns up his nose if you try to involve him in a game? Or perhaps your cat is a loner, reluctant to interact with you? Maybe you think that cats are impossible to train. This book will introduce you to the games that your cat will want to play, and have great fun doing so!

An expert in cat behavior, Seidl explains some of the many benefits of playing with your cat:
improves communication
increases physical fitness
helps regulate emotions
helps motivate to learn
relieves boredoms
releases pent up energy

The games and puzzles involve hiding treats, using different sounds and textures such as feathers, paper bags, and boxes, and hunting games.

In one game you hide a toy under a small throw rug. It sounds simple, but it is fun to watch the cat work the toy out from under the rug.

Another game is Cat Soccer.  Your cat is the goalie, as you try to roll a small ball past him.

I think any cat owner will enjoy these games and puzzles. I bet your cat will teach you a few variations on the games too!
