Develop playing skills in the domesticated cat

The game is the most important part of the social life of cats. Playing, the animal develops your mental abilities, strengthens the bond of the “brain/muscle”, develops the necessary skills, learns to cope with hypothetical problems adjusting to life in his new human family and reveals hidden traits of his character. It is only at first sight it seems that the game cat — a carefree pastime. Actually, the playing, the cat learns many important “subjects” that you should know and its owners.

In the life of wild animals, and cats are no exception, games are there so that a young individual can master the first hunting skills. Domestication allowed the cat to get food, not going out on a hunt. The game in the serious subject of survival has turned into a ritual. In the wild only play kittens. Pets continue to “baby” all my life, even in old age.

Games have their roots in the hunting ritual. So enough of all the toys and games will prefer those who will remind him that he is a hunter, and, therefore, should be the victim. No wonder the cat attacks the first thing moving within his field of vision objects. And in any case not delinikaitis your feet, hands or garments.

Everything is obvious and simple – the way the more natural beauty than Manichev her pretentious and “alien,” the cat in General smarter. Of course, if we are talking about rocks – about large groups, not about individual animals.
