Revival and Curiosity: Encouraging Outdoor Exploration for Your Cat in Spring

Encouraging your cat to safely explore outdoors can enrich their environment and boost their mental and physical well-being.

Safety First: Consider a harness and leash for walks, or a secure outdoor enclosure to allow your cat to explore safely.

Mental Stimulation: Outdoor exploration offers new smells, sounds and sights that mentally stimulate cats and reduce the risk of destructive behavior.

Physical Exercise: Outdoor activity helps maintain a healthy weight and prevent obesity in cats.
