Cats, Exercise- The two words are not often seen together, however exercise is important to your cat for a number of reasons.
Cats have not changed much in the 10,000 or so years since their domestication started. Until recently, they were roaming the countryside earning a living. For example, a scottish wild cat can have a territory of up to 40 square kilometers to patrol!
As well as food and exercise, this activity provides another essential component to cat welfare - mental stimulation.
