How cats show that they are bored: how to entertain your pet
Boredom in a pet is quite a dangerous psychological condition, because with boredom it can start making quite a mess. In addition, a pet that is bored all the time can spoil its character. Yes, first of all, we are talking about more social dogs, but cats can also experience boredom and experience its consequences.
OBOZREVATEL looked into how this emotion can manifest itself in fluffy cats. And what to do to stop bored cat.
So, the first sign of boredom in the animal, as we have already said, is a tendency to destructive behavior. The cat may start throwing things off shelves and tables, clawing noisily at furniture, etc. When the animal starts behaving this way, try simply paying attention to it. If it is really a sign of boredom the cat will gladly switch to playing with you and forget about his desire to harm.
More phlegmatic cats may become apathetic, sleep too much and lose interest in life. Their active congeners, on the contrary, may behave violently - running around the apartment, screaming and in some cases showing aggression towards family members and other animals.
If your cat has begun to show one of these symptoms, try to start by giving him more time. Play games with him or just pet him. The main condition is that the animal should feel your attention.
Another good way to overcome the emotion of boredom in the cat is to provide him with as much entertainment as possible. Buy simple toys or whole puzzles, arrange a house with shelves and hiding places where the cat can climb and sleep. Perhaps, if the nature of the animal allows it, start walking the cat outside - then the animal will focus on exploring new territories and stop getting bored. But in that case take care of his protection from vermin and safety.
If none of these measures help, strange behavior may be a sign of illness. In this case, don't hesitate to take your cat to the vet.
