Assisi Animal Health discusses the importance of exercise for cats. Even though cats are known for their lounging and sleeping habits, it is important for them to engage in both mental and physical activities. The more exercise a cat gets, the less likely he or she will become overweight or develop medical problems associated with obesity.

  • Mental stimulation. Why not stimulate your cat with some "cat and mouse" games that will stimulate his or her imagination and encourage them to hunt their "prey?" Make a cat "fishing pole" that has some type of streamer or feather attached so the cat can catch its prey.
  • Physical play. Jumping, running, and climbing are all fun activities for your cat. Set up an area where your cat can frolic and climb around. Toss some catnip or food across the room to give them incentive to run and be active. Cat trees, condos, jungle gyms and scratching posts will encourage climbing. A laser beam flashed around a room will certainly get your cat jumping. You can also offer a plastic ball or similar toy to bat around and chase across a room.

No matter the activity you or your cat chooses, aim for at least three short play times a day. Spending time with your cat by playing will only strengthen your bond—and lengthen his or her life!

Assisi Animal Health's clinical solutions complete the Circle of Care® — the collaboration of veterinarians and owners in animal health and healing. Our company helps veterinary professionals and owners improve the quality of life for companion animals using the Assisi Loop, the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical healing device that is based on the same FDA-cleared technology used on humans. The device uses low-level pulses of electromagnetic energy to reduce pain and swelling, and to enhance recovery.
