#cat enrichment

Getting small chew toys for my cat was the best idea I’ve ever had, only problem is she loves chewing them so much with her sharp little vampire teeth that I have to replace them like a week later </3

I've been working on making cheap enrichment toys/activities for my cat, Duck, and I'm upgrading the forage box tomorrow I think. Rn it's just a shoe box with crumpled paper and then cat treats sprinkled in. He'll forage for a bit, get bored and leave, then come back later and repeat until it's out of treats.
The "big" "upgrade" is adding toilet paper tube halves to one side to stick treats in so he has to scoop them out. At some point I'll grab one of the plastic grid mats (I think its for cross stitching???) And some spare fabric and make a snuffle mat for him and Goose, my dog.
I'm going to give these guys as much as I can since physically playing with them is extremely painful after the first minute and a half.

Best Adventure Cat/People interactions
Tumblr media
The australian guy who approached just to nod and say I was doing a fantastic job. fantastic job at what?? Raising a garbage bastard? Training a garbage bastard?? who knows
Toddler afraid of dogs and never having seen a cat so like.... first positive animal experience? She fed him KFC and I was D: but she was very gentle with pets and was clearly infatuated with him. One of her family members offered me a beer. They liked me at the time but I swear that kid is gonna want a cat now.
Another toddler who gave me a leaf before asking to pet Jasper. Ma'am you do not have to pay me.
Everyone who asked me for advice on harness training, I appreciate y'all but also I was seventeen?? the internet is right there???? :sob: Please get your advice from professionals
I love walking along and hearing the "aww!! omg!!" 10/10
preteen girls in general??? :sob: They are So Sweet usually.
"Jasper!!! And.... you dress like a witch." Thank you child, it may in fact be beacuse I'm a witch, idk tho. She'd seen us once before and I was very touched she remembered my Garbage Son.
People who tell me about their cats/show pictures>>>>
The guy who was telling me about his cat and ended up getting a claw clipping tutorial because he couldn't get his cat to the vet because his vet was only doing emergencies
Another small child - "Mum, look, a cat!" - "Don't be silly, that's a dog." The Mother looks closer. The Mother does double take.
On the flip side: people who i wish I could have on an irl dni
People who take pictures without permission??? wtf??? especially when i'm in the picture. gross. The boat is a good example of this - people were recording us and damn. My roommate nearly threw hands. Y'all never seen a cat on a boat before???
the woman on the bus glaring daggers at me and muttering "it's on her neck!!" (Jasper likes my shoulders.) "it's disgusting, it shouldn't be allowed." Ma'am I'm sure my cat is cleaner than your children, I can hear them making fart noises from here. He is making no sound and is just chilling. Please. It's 'public' tranport, y'know.
"Nice pussy!" Nearly threw hands with a thirteen year old.
"Animal abusing emo bitch!" i'm more of a goth but go off I guess. This seems extra but she accused me of abusing him because he was crying - my friend was eating sushi and comitting the Horrid Crime of Not Sharing With Jasper (Clearly abuse ofc) and when I was arguing with her she just. Called me an animal abusing emo bitch and walked off. I was more concerned by the "Emo" tbf.

Today’s low-attention cat toy: Length of paracord tied to a hair band. Hold the string end, wind it up, toss the hair band side out. Wind back and repeat.
Pros: Low attention, you can watch a video or what-have-you while doing it. The act of winding string seems to be attention-grabbing enough to keep the cat entertained between throws. (Results may vary by cat.)
Cons: Reeling string back to yourself is a good way to wind up with a cat pouncing on your lap. This is of particular concern if your cat has intact, untrimmed claws. :’)
Anyway, I’ve been keeping Goose occupied for about twenty minutes now without either of us losing interest, so over all I’m going to consider it a success!
Still. Ouch. 😂

The run is the best thing we've done for the big kids. The cats love being able to go out when they want, safely. It's 45F and cloudy, but Shilo is still just. Loafing out in the corner. 😂 Phoebe does this too - "Fuck you weather, I wanna be outside 😾"

I put dry food in an empty q-tip box for my cats once. Cardboard flap open and back for easy mode, down for hard mode. We were all bored and had it just lying around wasting space so they got a little bit of their meal put in it to see if it worked or not.
Nice!! That's a great idea for a nice easy enrichment toy for cats or small dogs!

Apparently the ultimate enrichment for a cat is giving him a prekilled r/odent and locking him in the shower so he doesn’t smear gore all over your living room. Pixie is having the time of his fucking life

Bart was fascinated by the snow so I brought some in for him. He made his mind up very quickly.

One video per post, huh. Well! A video of Goose wrestling pants, to go with the one of him wrestling paper.

We’ve had this paper out for a week or two, and I still wake up to find Goose playing in it most mornings. The other cats like it, too. 😂
Seen also in the corner: Goose is a hazard to folded clothing. He likes to wrestle with it. :’)

got any food enrichment ideas for my meow???
A favourite of mine is to hide treats around the house while the cats are sleeping or closed in a different room. Then they can spend the rest of the day “hunting” for treats! It also helps to encourage cats to use cat trees, carriers, etc.
You can also play “treat fetch” with your cat, which is pretty much what it sounds like. Grab a handful of treats and toss them one by one for your cat to chase.
If you’re thinking more along the lines of puzzle feeders, here’s a post with a few different styles of puzzle feeders you can make with recycling around your house.

So Duck finally hit the point in with his training that, if he thinks I have something he wants, he starts spinning at me. Between him, Goose, and Jack it's all spins all the time in this house.
I really want to start working on shake/high 5 next with him but I'm not exactly sure where to start.
