Hi, have you got any enrichment ideas for disabled cats? My cat is missing one of his front legs and it inhibits him from climbing especially as it's a relatively recent amputation. We are adopting him and we have not yet brought him home so I am not sure what he likes best, looking for some recommendations most cats like until we figure out his faves I guess? Thank you so much this is an amazing blog!
I imagine your new cat will adjust to missing a leg quicker than you think, cat’s are incredibly resilient. But in the mean time, you could try cat trees or ledges that have ramps so that he doesn’t have to climb/jump up to get to higher ground if he doesn’t want to. Food puzzles are always a good option; there’s a bunch here with varying degrees of difficulty. Hanging a bird feeder outside near a window your kitty can get to will give him something to watch and wont require much physical effort on his part. You could make him a maze out of boxes for him to explore and hide out in, cats love boxes! Maybe hide different treats or scents in it for added fun.
For a while though, just exploring his new home will probably keep him entertained :)
Congrats and good luck with your new kitty! As usual, if any of my followers have ideas, they’re more than welcome to pitch in.
