Did You Know ... Playing Teaches Your Cat Social Skills?

PetSmart Banfield, The Pet HospitalĀ®

Your rating: None

Playful activities, including climbing, wrestling, rolling and biting contribute to a kitten's social development. Play fights in particular teach kittens limits early on. For example, as kittens experience bites and scratches from their frisky siblings, they learn to reduce the intensity of their own attacks. In fact, it's common to see kittens rushing toward littermates only to veer away or rear up before making actual contact. And because a kitten's coordination isn't fully developed, the furry attacker may even tumble as it attempts to stop the assault.
