    Hello all, just wondering what to expect from my little man now he is 6 n half months old. He doesn't seem to want to play much now, got him neutered last week but he just seems to have lost all interest in his mouse toys etc?

    Losing interest in play is not usual for a 6 mth old kitten. Could you try him with some new toys in case he is bored with his old tones ? It is good to ring the changes with toys, put some away so you always have something to bring out when he has forgotten about it. Just like with kids, you don't let them have all their toys at once:)

    He may be more responsive to interactive toys rather than toys he has to use on his own. Maybe try some different Da Bird attachments, there are various ones. Or a laser light, or ping pong balls for you to throw for him, or a simple piece of string you pull along the floor for him.

    If he is not responsive to any of those, then it could be he is not feeling well.
    Is he eating and toiletting normally? Is he responsive when you stroke him or pick him up? Any other changes in behaviour?

    Hi thank you for your response. He plays if I pill string for him etc but he doesn't just randomly pounce on anything anymore. He is always really cuddly and eats and toilets fine
