Play is key to individuals surviving and thriving, including in social, emotional, cognitive, and sensorimotor development. Because of this, and the common observation that play is more frequently exhibited during times when all basic needs have been met, play is considered by many to be both an indicator and promotor of welfare in many species. In this talk, we'll look at our current understanding of play and how it relates to the wellbeing of our feline companions.
