[dropcap]K[/dropcap]eeping an active, intelligent Bengal cat entertained is not always an easy task. One of the most playful cat breeds, Bengal cats are very energetic and without the right motivation, they get bored easily. That’s why most Bengal owners stock up on toys and cat gadgets, to ensure their Bengal will have something to help them burn off the excess energy.
But, what is the best toy for Bengal cats? Although this largely depends on your feline’s unique personality, it goes without saying that unchallenging toys won’t cut it for a Bengal. They are too smart to be entertained for hours with a cardboard box (unless it’s forbidden to them) and too curious to keep returning to their old toys.
In this video, the two Bengals are playing with a Catit Senses 2.0 Circuit, an elevated wavy track with a ball trapped inside the cover. This interactive cat toy is a great choice for the intelligent Bengal, as you can see in this clip.
Shiraz, a Bengal Queen from Rosettes and Stripes cattery, is completely taken with this fun, challenging addition to the mountain of toys you can see in the background. It takes mere seconds for this intelligent, leopard-like kitty to get the hang of the game, and she can’t get enough! She keeps on pushing the ball through the peek-a-boo cover, hoping that her hunter skills are enough to get her paws on the swirly ball inside.
It’s adorable how even adult Bengals keep that playful, kitten-like nature! What’s great about this toy is that it can be assembled and rearranged in over a hundred different layouts, so there’s no need to worry that your bright kitty will get bored easily. And, when you have a Bengal, you know how important it is to have something that will occupy them.
Bengals are well known as one of the most energetic and high spirited cat breeds out there. They are incredibly playful and love challenges, which is why their behavior can become problematic if they are neglected or not able to express their active side.
Some people are attracted to the breed just because of their stunning looks, so they get disappointed when they realize these cats are not couch potatoes, but rather tiny leopards, always looking for their next great adventure. Their lively nature and innate curiosity are some of the reasons why people decide on buying pairs, as these cats enjoy having a companion. Or, if we’re being honest, a partner in crime.
To ensure your furry friend isn’t bored, or considering your new drapes as a climbing post, keep them entertained with interactive cat toys. You can even create a little feline corner of the room, complete with a cat tree or a tunnel. It goes without saying that your Bengal prince or princess will be thankful for it!
