At our house, the Kitty Olympics take place every day. No matter how busy my schedule is, I make time to play with Allegra and Ruby at least a couple of times a day.
Regular, structured playtime not only keeps your cats happy and entertained, it also helps correct behavior problems, or avoid them in the first place. If you’ve been watching My Cat From Hell, you’ve seen that “play therapy” is almost always the first thing Jackson Galaxy recommends to start fixing the problems shown on the show.
While I may not be awarding medals to Allegra and Ruby, I can definitely identify favorite disciplines for each of them. Allegra is a world champion Da Bird chaser. She’s “killed” several attachments already – thankfully, it comes with replacements.
She also likes to go for the gold chasing her Spring Toys. You can watch her retrieve two of them from underneath the stove in the video above.
Ruby has become quite fond of her Hauspanther Stacks toy, and excels at chasing it up and down the stairs.
Another one of Allegra and Ruby’s favorite disciplines is Tickle Pickle wrestling. After dominating the Tickle Pickle in yet another round, Ruby is ready for a nap.
When it comes to track and field, the Bergan Turbo Track Scratcher is a favorite at our house. Allegra and Ruby have the version pictured above on both of their birthday wish lists.
We also love this Undercover Mouse electronic toy – the judges haven’t determined yet whether Allegra or Ruby will be the winner in this particular discipline.
Toys like these will keep your little feline athlete in top shape, both physically and mentally.
If your cats were to enter the kitty Olympics, what disciplines would they medal in?
