8 Signs That Your Cat Is Bored
Boredom has affected us all. And it doesn’t just stop with humans. Cats can’t talk with us to express their complaints, so it’s important to observe for these signs that your cat is bored. This is often particularly true for indoor cats that don’t travel outside of the house. Keeping kitty strictly indoors is far safer, but you have to keep a watchful eye on some important signs to stop boredom from building up. Luckily, with proper stimulation and a few extra TLC, it’s a simple fix to urge them back to happy.
8. Kitty Really Likes to Eat
If your cat is getting attached to their food bowl, and specifically what’s in it, this is often a transparent sign that your cat is quite bored. Days spent consuming more food than recommended may be a tool for passing the time, which successively without proper routine exercise will make their tummy grow excessively
7. Or… Kitty Doesn’t Want To Eat
On the contrary, to constantly eating, some cats answer boredom by showing complete disinterest in food altogether. This is often not good for you or kitty and you’ll try changing up their diet a tad or treating them with canned food–which is best for them anyhow.
6. Sir/Madam Sleeps A Lot
Cats are notorious for not missing out on their shut-eye, but if you notice your cat is nearly lethargic or sleeping far too often than this is often a clear sign that something is up with them. Try interacting together with your cat more, incorporating play sessions to draw in their interest. And there’s always that tiny thing called “catnip” which may just strike their fancy. Indoor cats are known for sleeping a tad more than cats that travel outside, but their time awake shouldn’t be spent feigning sleep. Although kittens are usually more playful than adult cats, mature cats still enjoy playtime despite their age.
