Cats really enjoy being outside. But it’s your responsibility to contain them in a safe and secure area. Consider turning an atrium or enclosed patio that has planting areas into a cat-friendly outdoor area. If you are worried about birds flying in and falling prey to feline paws, you can add a light shade cover or latticework to prevent this from happening and simply plant accordingly.
Distraction toys such as a Kong can provide additional hours of fun if you stuff it with Ultramix sweet potato or pumpkin puree and freeze the toy until the puree is solid. Be sure to give the stuffed Kong to your dog outside or somewhere where you won’t mind cleaning up the mess – if he doesn’t lick up everything for you! Peanut butter is another great option.
