Nothing beats the feeling of snuggling up close to a purring cat, but ensuring your feline companion stays happy, healthy, and alert can sometimes require a bit of work.

So, how can you tell if your cat is suffering from boredom and how do you cater for the needs of a bored cat? This episode, we sit down with animal behaviourist Dr. Jo Righetti and find the answers to some common questions you may have about cat boredom.
