How to keep indoor cat happy and healthy
Cats love to play! They have an instinct to explore, climb, hunt and interact so staying inside all day can get rather dull. So we’ve put together some innovative ways to keep your indoor cat happy and healthy and stimulate it’s environment in order to stay active physically and mentally.
Modular Cat Furniture
PoopyCat is one of our favourites; their play houses are good for cats, good for the environment and looks so darn cute in our homes! Made out of modular cardboard blocks, you can add pieces or change the shape, so that your cat has a new playground time and time again. There are places to hide, snooze, and lounge on-top of, imperiously surveying the world. You can also add in a scratcher block, providing much loved kitty manicures.
PoopyCat even have an eye-catching ‘landmarks’ range – our favourite is of course, the Egyptian Sphynx.
“Build a fort or build a robot, change it weekly or change it monthly, it’s always fun and your kitty will love it”
Or if you’re looking to blend your kitties climbing tree in with your furniture then have a look at Katris, the creator of modular furniture for humans and cats. Cat tree, climbing tower, coffee table, book shelf all in one – what’s not to love?

Interactive Cat Toys
This ingenious toy box from SmartCat is perfect for little hunters! The toy box lets cats ‘capture’ their toys by fishing them out of the holes. You can custom it with your own choice of toys. And every now and then, pop a little kitty treat into the holes. Yum!
“Give your cat a new surprise everyday”
If you love a bit of technology and you can’t bear the thought of not checking in on your fur baby, then look no further than PetCube – an interactive pet camera that lets you see, talk to, and play with your pet when you’re not at home.
“Play laser games with your furry friend even when you’re not at home”
