Our cats are part of the family, which means they celebrate with the family! Holidays are a fun and busy time for everyone due to traveling, celebrating, having the family over, and decorating. Who is to say our fur babies can’t join in on the fun?

Easter Egg Hunt For Cats
Over at Clicker Training, they had an awesome idea about giving your little furball an Easter egg hunt of their very own. This game can be the perfect Easter gift for your cat that’s interactive, fun and delicious. Here’s how to play:
- Gather up your favorite treats.
- Get some Easter eggs that break in half.
- Rub the outside of the eggs with the treats then put the treats inside the eggs.
- Hide the eggs except for one.
- Invite your cat out and place an egg in the middle of the floor.
- After they sniff and paw at it, open it up to reveal the treat.
- Follow them as they find the others and help them when needed.
