“Cats are grumpy and lazy by nature, right? Wrong! When your apathetic furball stares at you in judgment from the top of the fridge, what it’s really saying is: “Play with me!” Studies have shown that cats are social beings that crave human interaction and thrive on attention. They may play it cool, but when you’re gone, they miss you dearly. The effects of neglect can lead to more than just grumpiness. Without proper stimulation and socialisation, cats can develop depression, obesity, and other major health problems. Along with pet neglect, pet obesity has also become an increasingly big issue over the years. According to several studies, the majority of American cats are either overweight or obese. This is mainly because of a lack of stimulation and exercise.”
