2. Feather and String


It is a perfect game involving a lot of fun and energy for cats. You will need a toy wand for this game. Either purchase it from a store or create a DIY rod with the help of a stick bell string or feather. You need to play by waving the wand just above the head of your kitty. This will urge her to jump high and quickly get hold of the flying feather or bell.

When you pull the wand away from your kitten’s view she will try pouncing at it under the furniture or around corners. Before you set up the game, you need to ensure that the room is an open one. This will provide enough space for your kitten to bounce around and run. You will never want your pet kitten to jump on your valuables and ruin them during the play.

3. Fetch
