Why Cats Knock Things

Cats knock things out of curiosity, driven by their natural instincts to explore and play.


Knocking objects around can be a form of play for cats, engaging their hunting and pouncing instincts


Cats may knock items to gain their owner's attention, especially if they feel neglected


Providing cats with interactive toys and activities can reduce their urge to knock things and offer mental stimulation

Environmental Enrichment

Knocking objects can serve as a way for cats to mark their territory and leave their scent on items

Securing fragile or valuable items can help prevent accidents and ensure the safety of both your cat and your possessions
