Give him his own 'collection' of paper bags and a couple of small boxes - hours of fun for a kitten (and some spoilt rotten adult cats). Toys on strings that you can attach to a doorknob intrigue some, others don't care much for them.

Ditto another kitten, instead of what someone did with the 8 - 10 week old that I found beside by barn 3 weeks ago
Smelled all froo-froo and her ears were spotless clean. She started out being someone's house kitten but is quite the talker and gets loud if you don't pay attention to her, so I imagine that's why she went for a ride.
She's a barn cat at my house and into everything - lol Since I am stuck with her, I named her "BB" for Busybody. Now I have to spend money on spaying when she's old enough - just great-------------not
At least she found her way to the barn before the coyotes got her. What really really tisses me off is we live on a fairly remote road. Maybe 10 houses from one end to the other, the rest is woods and pasture.
I figure whomever dumped her was the mate to the person that really wanted her (or the parent) because she's such a mouthy little brat.
If the OP would like her, maybe we can arrange travel for her. She is a beautiful little Tiger. Looks just like one of those Toyjer cats; actually she looks exactly like the kitten on the left in this link. http://hubpages.com/hub/Toygers-Domestic-Tiger-Cats

A large, sturdy cat tree is a wonderful thing to have. Check Craigslist ... that's where we got both of ours. Kitty is now about 2.5 years old, but she still loves her trees, especially her smaller one, which is situated in front of the upstairs window and provides a fabulous vantage point for the road, the neighbors' yard, etc.
The big one is sturdy enough that even the 60-pound hound mix can jump on and off the lower level without making it rock. They're super and our kitty figured out really quickly (with the help of some catnip) that they were the right place to do any claw sharpening/picking. She also thinks it is great fun to hang out in the top "house" area of the big one and have you throw mice up to her, which she then smacks away.
If rough play is what he wants, get a sturdy and stuffed puppet (I have a cute tiger puppet) and wrestle with him! Some cats will wrestle by themselves, but many enjoy when you 'fight' back. A regular stuffed animal works too, but is more hazardous for your health
