Have you ever visited a place that houses animals, like a farm, shelter, or even a friend's house, and noticed the wide variety of items present in the animal's habitat? Or perhaps you've encountered situations where the absence of enrichment items was apparent. In those instances, you couldn't help but witness firsthand the impact that enrichment activities have on an animal's behavior and mood. Animals are greatly affected by their surroundings, responding to the stimuli they encounter, which significantly shapes their mood and behavior. That's why ensuring proper enrichment is absolutely essential for the well-being and happiness of our beloved animal companions.
