We have a friend with an indoor cat and we do worry that he does not get enough stimulation with only a small flat to patrol (the cat that is not our friend). So we bought the cat a DVD called Feline Frolics. The DVD contains about an hour of footage of birds, rodents, cat toys and other cats. Naturally in the interests of consumer research we decided to try it with our resident feline Cleopatra first.
The DVD’s visuals and soundtrack have supposedly been enhanced to make the range of images and sounds more attractive to the feline senses.
Cleopatra certainly enjoyed the little birds
The images of mice, hamsters and bunnies went down well too.
When it comes to the other cats her reaction was more hostile, but after about fifteen minutes she seemed to get tired of watching the telly and hopped off the stool to get on with her favourite hobby.
