Question Bored Cat

Hi everyone,

My cat seems to be bored. I have bought her a bunch of toys that i thought would keep her busy but she doesn't seem at all interested in any of them.
I make a point to play with her everyday for a few minutes, and she loves it. I however can't play with her all the time as i have other things to do.

All she does is sleep most of the day and looks out of the window. A lot of times she will even fall asleep in the window.

I have also noticed that she will come up to me and meow a lot.

If you guys have any suggestions for me on how to keep my cat entertained, that would be great.

Thanks.

Get her another cat as a friend .

Cats often do much better in pairs. Mine rarely play together or cuddle but I believe they still like having another cat around.

I agree 100%,2 cats are always better than one,there are lots of kittens/cats who would love to be her friend in the shelters.

I agree, cats seem to be actually pretty social critters. Now once you start getting up in numbers they can make you crazy!!

I want to get another cat, but i can't get another one right now. Maybe in a month or two, but i'm really not sure.

There's lots of interactive toys available now. You know what I want to get for mine, is one of those boxes with all the little holes in the top and a ball inside. Petsmart has them. Noella likes those kind of toys. She's such a nosy little fart.

I'm pretty sure that I have seen an ehow video on YouTube that teaches you how to make one of those at home. They call it a cat puzzle.

I know a few minutes a day is not enough for my cats. More like 15 or 20. They don't play with each other either, rotten girls don't like each other.
