How do I make sure my indoor cat has as much fun as he would outdoors?

Kim says: Beyond the basic requirements of food, water, and shelter, cats need opportunities to exercise their most natural behaviours in order for them to thrive both mentally and physically. An indoor cat needs to be provided with a stimulating environment with opportunities for scratching, climbing, exploration, hunting, and play. A dull and under stimulating indoor environment can lead to stress-related behaviour problems.

The key to enriching a cat’s indoor environment is to understand the resources that are particularly valued by the cat and those that will facilitate natural feline behaviour.
