Default How Can We Keep Our Bird Safe From Our Cat? part 2

Provide your feline with ample opportunities to enact predatory behavior in a safe manner. During times when the cat and bird are together in the same room, direct your cat’s attention to interactive toys that expend physical and mental energy. Provide him with a variety of toys, such as play mice and feather toys or motorized toys simulating real prey. Food puzzles are another good way to redirect your cat’s interest and expend energy. You can also hide 10 percent of your cat’s daily food around the house to encourage investigation of his environment and distract him from hunting your bird.

Sometimes, however, it is impossible for cats and birds to peacefully coexist. In this situation, rehoming is the best solution for the mental and physical well-being of the bird. In many cases, though, simple environmental management is all it takes to ensure safe interactions between cat and bird.
