Keep your feline frisky: tips for healthy cats

Cats spend plenty of time sleeping, burning fewer calories as they do so. Because of this, there is the potential for cats to become overweight, especially if the cat is allowed to eat at its leisure instead of during predetermined feeding times. So what can you do to ensure you have a healthy cat? It's easier than you think.

Diet and exercise are just as important for healthy cats as they are for healthy humans. Shifting your cat's diet to a raw food diet like Wysong's Archetype provides your pet with a diet that mimics the nutrients cats were genetically programed to consume in the wild. Archetype is a starch free, meat-based diet, assuring your pet will consume the high-quality, desired nutrients he needs.

Meanwhile, exercising your cat can be an enjoyable experience for you both. While dogs require walks, healthy cats get their exercise from play. Cat toys are a great choice. Remember that cats are natural hunters so toys that allow them to stalk, pounce or jump are great options. You can entice your cat to carry out all three of these movements with a fishing pole toy and a mouse or feather attached to the end.

A laser pointer is also a great idea. Use it to lead your cats around the room and get them jumping. Just remember to focus the pointer on a toy at the end of the session so your cat finishes with a rewarding target.

Another great play option is a cat tower. This furniture allows your cat to run, jump and climb to new heights. Your pets will also appreciate the new vantage points where they can sit and satisfy their curiosity.
