The change in behaviour of the cat will help us know that the cat is depressed. There are many reasons for depression. Lose of companion, change of environment, arrival of new animal and boredom is few to mention.

Besides the cats are very sensitive and can be disturbed greatly even by the slight change behaviour of the pet owners. The cats can be very well aware of the time at which the owners leave and come home. For example if the pet owner goes on tour and does not come home at usual time, the cat will be very restless. The will keep going to the door to look for him. They will rush to the very sound of the door bell. In the absence of owners for long time, the cat will slowly loose its appetite, restrict playing , become nervous , get excited very easily etc. This change in behaviour is nothing but depression signs
This depression can happen in case the pet owner brings in yet another animal, be it fellow cat or any other animal. The cat will get jealous of the new animal as the attention of the pet owner gets deviated or at least shared.  The reduction is play time with the owner will push the cat to boredom and soon depression follows.

Once it is confirmed that the cat is depressed, only way to bring the cat to normal is by increasing the play time. Interactive play is what is required to cajole the cat faster. Caressing the fur by the owners helps a great deal.

Cats are natural predators and they love hunting. Toy mouse is one of the best toys available to help the cause. The cats can be seen enjoying its mock chasing the toy mouse. The toy mouse is operated by a remote control unit with joy stick. The pet owner can manoeuvre the mouse with the help of the joy stick thus making the cat’s chase difficult and more enjoyable.
