Teaching your cat to play fetch can be a fun and rewarding activity for both of you. Provided you furry friend is interested in cooperating with the whole toss and bring back idea. But, with patience you and your cat will get the hang of this fun activity.
The only thing you will need for this activity is your cat’s favorite toy. This can be a ball, a wad of paper, a mouse, whichever he prefers. You want it to be small enough that he can pick it up and bring it back to you.
Here we go:
- Get your cat’s attention with the toy by rustling it or dangling it in front of him.
- When you have his attention, toss it a little way from you. Let him play with it for a bit, then go pick it up and return to your spot.
- Encourage the cat to follow you back to your spot. When he does pet him and praise him.
- Repeat. Each time toss it a little farther. Eventually, your cat will get the idea and bring the toy back to you.
