Having a cat means more than just feeding and cleaning up after it. Cats have emotions so you need to make your cat happy as well. One way to keep your cat happy is to bond with it.
Obviously the easiest way to bond with a cat is to give it treats that it likes. As much as you might want to play with your cat, keep in mind that cats like having their own boundaries at times so your cat may need to spend time alone in a quiet place of its own.
By learning to bond with your cat, both you and your cat can live happy and fulfilling lives.
