Do you have an indoor cat? It’s easy for our indoor feline friends to sit around all day and pack on excess weight. Don’t let your pet fall victim to obesity—exercise them indoors with these tips from your vet Ashburn, VA.

Toys

There’s just no substitute for good old-fashioned cat toys. There are plenty out there to choose from. Even something as simple as dangling a string of yarn in front of your cat’s face will do the trick! Play with your feline friend on a regular basis to help her burn off excess calories.

Cat Furniture

Cat furniture, like cat towers and scratching posts, are great for helping your cat to entertain herself, even when you’re not home. Towers usually have multiple tiers that your cat can jump to and from, making for great exercise. Browse the selection at your local pet supply shop.

Laser Pointer

Laser pointers are a relatively new type of gadget for our cats. Many of our feline friends love chasing around that pesky red dot that they just can’t seem to catch up with!
