Happy International Cat Day!
8th August is International Cat Day! As custodians of this annual awareness day, this year the charity International Cat Care is encouraging all cat owners to spend 5 minutes a day playing with their cats. Play is great for mental stimulation and physical fitness. And is great for owner/ cat bonding too! Remember to finish off play with a treat for your feline friend.
Did you know that, according to a recent study carried out by the charity, less than 30% of cat owners play with their cat for 5 minutes a day with a wand toy? As well as being fun and physically exerting, wand toys are brilliant for letting cats express their natural hunting behaviours and can help reduce live prey activity. A special gift for your special feline this International Cat Day?!
