Latest Simon's Cat animation focuses on play time
25 September 2017
The latest video in the Simon’s Cat Logic series looks at play time. As Simon explains, cats can often be choosy about their playthings, often favouring simple objects like a piece of string or a cardboard box over toys and activities.
"Most of these toys end up under the sofa or fridge," says Simon. "Teddy’s favourite toy is a piece of string. He’ll chase this all day long and if you go outside and put it in the long grass, he’s the happiest cat in the world."
One of the best toys for playing with cats is the fishing rod toy. Nicky explains that they are great to showcase different types of play, from holding it up in the air to running it across the ground.
"Avoid dangling it in front of your cat’s face." says Nicky. "Cats are far-sighted, meaning they can’t see well under 25 centimetres. They much prefer the fishing rod toy moving away from the cat, similar to how prey would move."
Both Nicky and Simon agree that however and whenever you play with your cat, it is of great benefit to them and to you and helps to strengthen your bond.
