Earlier today, a cat owner shared in our Facebook group that her kitties seem to be suffering from “cabin fever”, asking for extra attention, getting short with each other and just generally acting grumpy and out of sorts. Almost immediately, several other members joined the discussion with similar stories.
I can tell you I’m definitely dealing with some cabin fever issues! I live in the northeastern part of the United States and if you’ve paid any attention at all to American weather, you know this area broke all sorts of records for snowfall levels these past couple of months. With all that cold, ice and snow, I’ve spent far too many weekends cooped up in the house.
Thankfully, spring is right around the corner. In fact, it officially kicks off on March 20th, and we should be able to throw our windows open to the lovely warm weather not too much later. Unfortunately, we can’t tell our feline friends that they’ll be able to watch the birds and perhaps go out for leash walks very soon. So we need to keep them occupied and challenged!
Rene Schweitzer’s kitties, 14 year old gray and white tabby, Benny, 6 year old calico, Sadie, and 9 month old tuxedo kitten, Ringo, keep sane by chasing a Hex bug around the house.
And Scott Hunt’s F1 Bengals, 8 year old Amaretto and his smaller housemate, 6 year old Rowdy, like to run on his newly purchased Go Cat Wheel.
How do you keep your kitties occupied?
