If your cat has a natural poker face, it can make your feline friend seem like nothing will please them at times. In contrast, you might have a cat that is attentive and interested in the socialness of the home or a combination of cats that have mixed interest, depending on the people and ambiance.

    Brown Paper Bags

    For cat lovers that hear the expression “Who let the cat out of the bag?” it is less of an idiom for revealing secrets and more of an eye roll that yes, cats tend to always find their way into in many different types of bags and love to dash out in an excitable manner. Just like children seem to find more fascination with the box the toy comes in, cats seem to love crawling into paper bags.

    To enhance your cat’s paper bag diving experience, consider make a couple holes in different parts of the bag where the cat can peek out and see what is going on in the house from the safety of the paper disguise.

     If you want to give your cat its own veritable fort, take two brown paper bags and cut the bottom off one of them. Slide the bag over the other bag so your cat now has an extra-long tunnel. Make sure you put the bag away at night unless you want the wonderful sound of crinkling and diving as you attempt to sleep.

    Anything That Dangles

    String, yarn, shoelaces, ribbon, folded invisible tape – about anything will excite your cat’s hunter instincts if it moves enough. If you want to encourage your cat to play with string even more, consider sewing something and making the thread very apparent. It will have a double effect of enticing your cat to win over your attention from your current project while also playing with the string.

    Feet in the Sheets

    Put your cat’s curiosity and hunter skills to work by moving your feet around under the bed sheets like a mole in the ground. Adding a comforter or thick blanket with a smooth surface to the mix makes your feet easier to notice and more fun for your cat to attack. Make sure your cat’s nails are trimmed or you’ll feel like your feet are actual prey.
