Why is my nearly four year old cat still as playful as a kitten?
She can play with anything--strings, boxes, my hair. She jumps on my back when I bend over. She's funny. I can get the other cats to play, but they lose interest more quickly. This one finds fun on her own. Still a kitten at heart.
Well, thats adorable. My cat, Tigger, is the same way. After I had my son, two years ago, I got the feeling that she was mad at me. So, I began to play with her more, and pay attention to her whenever I could.. To this day, she can't sleep anywhere else besides my bedroom, and shes extremely protective of my son..
I think that some cats are just playful with us. Its in their nature. Especially if they are your first cat, or the one cat who you feel a special connection to.. Its normal!
I'd guess it's her basic personality and she's a healthy cat.
It is just her personality. My guy is 10 years old and he still plays like a kitten. The good thing about her being like that is, you will be able to cheer her up by just playing with her
Because you're doing stuff right! A healthy cat is a happy cat who will still chase shadows, will still have a certain time each day or night she is most active (and playful!), and who will be comfortable with you and those who visit you. So you can give yourself a pat on the back and relax haha.
TOO boisterous? I fixed that by letting my cat become a Mr. Fat Cat. XD He's uber adorable. His idea of active is rolly pollying and chasing shadows on the stairs.
Four isn't really that old in the cat world.....but I would guess that her Mama has given her a wonderful life, good food and lots of playtime. As I'm sure you know, every single cat in the world has a totally individual & unique personality. My female is a stuck-up wench....my little boy is an impish trouble-maker......Sounds like your 4 yr old doesn't really care to grow up....like Peter Pan!!
Be happy she is, I think that your cat still being as playful as a kitten will keep her young for a long time.
I have a five-year-old Ragdoll cat and he is very playful. I think it's because he has a one-year-old little brother that keeps him on his toes. They're great together. After they run around chasing each other and playing, they go take a nap on the bed about two inches away from the other.
Enjoy your cats,
My cat is still playing like a kitten too! She hardly changes her character - always and forever curious, playful and love to snuggle at night. It's a sign of a happy cat. They are well loved and a proof that you did a great job!

I joined HubPages about 1 year ago and I have only written 13 hubs. Out of these 13 only 2 hubs are getting good traffic. That's why I deleted 11 hubs and left these 2 hubs on here. I'm not sure if I should go on with writing here. I think I would still keep my account because I like the HubPages...

How do you scold kittens and cats that works?We have tried water spray bottles, spanking, yelling, putting her in time out, rewarding good behavior, talking things out with her but she doesn't learn!!! We are out of ideas.

To set the scene here: I moved in with my boyfriend. He has 2 big dogs, one has bad history with cats.The house is 2 stories and we just adopted a kitten. So far, we've been keeping the kitten inside our bedroom while blocking off the stairs.However... the 'barricade' that we have isn't very good...
