Cats sleep a good portion of the day, but they do need exercise to stay healthy. About 30-minutes of moderate exercise is considered adequate. While outdoor cats may come across this exercise more naturally, indoor cat toys can help initiate activity for cats that stay in. However, they do not need to get 30-minutes of exercise in one go, so introduce playtime in intervals throughout the day.
The benefits of exercise include helping to keep them fit, increasing their mental well-being and improving your relationship and bond. Dusk and dawn are most cats’ active hours, so set your play schedule accordingly.
