If you think your cat is acting crazy, chances are good it is crazy. However, one reason for this is that cats crave activity that they would normally get by roaming around outside. Yet many cat owners keep their pets cooped up inside all day long for safety reasons.

When cats remain cooped up inside, they tend to lose their minds. That’s why you need to find different ways to keep your cat active and mentally healthy. One way to do that is through food puzzles, which force the cat to figure out how to get food out of various mazes or contraptions that challenge the cat’s hunting skills.

Some people go so far as to build cat patios so their cats can safely go outside without the threat of getting loose and risking cars or malicious humans.
