Are indoor cats less happy than their outdoor friends?

Firstly, build a living space that recreates life outdoors by offering access to different heights, areas to rest, and a feeding place far away from their litter tray.

Next, make sure you keep them stimulated. Play games with them and leave activities for them to play with while you're away. For example, provide them with a toy, that also gives out small and healthy snacks when they play or touch it*.

Finally, because indoor cats tend to form more hairball, make sure to keep their coat in check with regular brushing and a diet rich in fibre.
