Hi all, I posted my primary concern last week about my cat and kitten not getting along so much. I wanted to ask everyone on my second big concern which is how much time do I need to play with a cat and kitten? I know the question is very vague and depends on animal to animal but most people around me think that I spend WAY too much time playing with them and taking them outside. At first I brushed it off thinking i'd rather have them be active than be sleeping all day. But now I am starting to regret playing with them so much as it takes up most of my nights! Typically on a week day I would say the kitten gets about 1.5 hours of play and the cat gets to go outside for about 2.5 hours per day. It certainly doesn't leave much time for supper, and any of my hobbies . I've tried cutting the time down, and as you can imagine there is alot of whining. When the whining stops, they typically both will just goto sleep. My main goal was the make both happy, but I feel if they sleep alot that they are bored. I leave toys on the ground, but they are rarely used. It seems that I have became their toy to an extent. Anyways, just wanted to see what people thought. I know spending time with animals is never a bad thing, but i'm also trying to figure out how to maintain a nice balance between my life and keeping them happy. I couldn't imagine if I had kids right now as the cats would lose a big chunk of time, and i'm not sure they are ready. Thanks for the help!
