Involving children in playtime with the family pet will help to create a strong bond between them and teaches them to see the cat as a friend. Show your child games that she can play with the cat, such as swatting a ping pong ball back and forth or chasing a piece of string.
Allow her to learn by example by letting her see you play with the cat. Always supervise young children when they are playing with pets to make sure that they do not accidentally play too roughly or hurt them.

Having a well adjusted and happy cat can make all the difference when sharing your life and home with him. Spending daily quality time with him is important, and understanding his thoughts, moods, and behaviors is a great way to establish a loving bond between you.
Animal behaviorists believe that the more time you spend interacting with your feline friend, the closer your relationship will be and the more communication you will establish. This will increase trust between you and your cat will become more affectionate toward you.
