Wild lions would often come across smells that are new and unfamiliar. In order to replicate this, we often add new scents to the enclosures ourselves. Household herbs and perfumes can be added weekly to stimulate the cats and give them something to interact with. We also add boxes and bags (providing they are natural materials) to give the cats something to play with and destroy.
