Customer Question
How can I keep this...
How can I keep this cat entertained? We have a 15-month old savannah cat who is slowly going crazy. He plays with he bengal brothers and sisters, with us (anything of a stick is a riot, he's learning hot to fetch or maybe teaching us how to fetch, robo fish are good fo 20-40 mintues; outdoor catio helps. Of course if kitty is not involved in a sanctioned activity he entertaines himself. This rarely ends up being a good thing. I would appreciate any ideas (weird is fine( for keeping him bussy. Commercial products, DIY, anything is great. Ty!

Good evening,Customer Thanks for your question. Can you tell me more about what types of toys he likes? Does he prefer those with catnip? lights? feathers? things that blink? move? The more info you can share about his favorite toys the better of a list I can give you on what to try from here forward.

You helped us to come to what we believe is a better next step in Jack's treatment, and hopefully have saved us $800!! Thanks again!

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
