Dog owners have lots of options for exercising their pets. But if you’re a cat owner, you know that there are fewer options for keeping your pet in the peak of condition.
But it’s important that cats get exercise. There are many health problems associated with obesity in cats, just as there are for dogs. And if you own a cat, there’s a pretty good chance that your cat really needs some exercise. About 1 out of every 3 cats in is overweight.

Time for some kitty calisthenics!
Experts recommend that you engage your cat in some form of physical play for 10 or 15 minutes several times each day. The ease with which you can do that will depend upon your cat’s age and temperament. Younger cats tend to be more playful than older cats, and some cats just have more of a playful nature than others.

Here are some tips for helping your cat get some playful exercise.
