Hide the treats

Cats are natural hunters. Hiding treats in cardboard boxes, under clean yoghurt pots or in cardboard tubes around your home will make them use different senses to find the food.

Break a biscuit into smaller pieces so more can be hidden. Only give them one treat per day to help them stay a healthy weight.
