Keeping Kitties Amused..?

The farmer is spraying the field next to my house and I've been advised to keep all "children and domestic animals" away from it for several days. Obviously I can't say "don't go in the field" to my 2 cats so I'm going to have to keep them indoors when they're used to going out pretty much whenever they want (most of the time... :? ).

Does anyone have any ideas for me to keep them amused while they can't go out?

Should I get a bunny costume and run around the house for them to chase? :shock:

Should I get kitty harnesses so that I can walk them in "non-sprayed" areas?

:?:

Bit of cat nip, my cat used to love to roll in that, thought it was great.

Entertainmentwise, a couple of ping pong balls. They'll bat those round and chase em for ages. Then they'll be too tired to even think of going outside. :wink:

One of the best kitty amusements is a laser pointer (you can use a flashlight if you don't have one, but it doesn't work quite as well).

Shine the beam on the floor and they'll chase it for hours. They'll even chase it up walls:)

Have a look through the BB house forum, we had a kitten in there for a while!

Yes craigy poo you did have a kitten in the house for a while. But did you not try to KILL her rather than ENTERTAIN her? :shock: :(

Pick a room in your house they really shouldn't go into, (baby's room, important computer room etc) leave the door open.
Keep yourself and them fit and amused by constantly chasing them out. It's the only room they'll want to be in.

Our cat used to like climbing in and out of large paper bags...

One of our used to be entertained for hours when we threw ping pong balls into the big paper bags that Ikea used to have. She would either follow it into the bag or wait for it to come out the other side.

We used to be in hysterics watching her. :lol:
