Mental Stimulation for Cats

You may have heard the phrase, "A mentally stimulated cat is a happy cat," before. Mental stimulation can decrease the chances of depression or lack of energy in a cat. It can also help cure other mental conditions. One of the challenges with mentally stimulating cats is that they often surpass their owners' energy. It can be difficult for most pet owners to play or engage consistently with their cats. This can lead to the cat being frustrated, lethargic, or depressed.

Keep in mind that even a little exercise goes a long way. 5 to 15 minutes of playtime with your cat can go a long way in helping him or her engage in mental stimulation. It is also a good idea to end these sessions with a treat, signaling to your cat that he or she just finished a positive activity. You can further stimulate the cat's mind by adding more complexity to whatever games you two play.

Don't limit your cat to just one type of activity. Our office can inform you about all the different options you have for mentally stimulating your cat. If you cannot provide certain aspects of mental stimulation, our team will inform you about all other ways you can keep your pet healthy and happy. We can provide you with puzzles and toys to mentally stimulate your cat in the comfort of your own home. We can assess your cat to find the right stimulation for him or her.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."

  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
