Kitten Care – Exercise
Kittens love to play and it can be hilarious entertainment for you. Encourage playful exercise by providing the right kind of toys. Not only will it improve muscle tone and vitality but can also prevent heart disease, weight problems, and stress (just like with people!). Make sure the toys are too big to be swallowed and sturdy enough so they cannot be crushed or easily destroyed. Do not allow your kitten to play with string, ribbon, thread, yarn, or other linear objects. Offer a variety of toys, both that requires your interaction (like cat teasers or laser pointers) and those that do not (balls, cat nip mice, etc).
