Unfortunately, our cats don’t always take kindly to our engagements outside of the house

Particularly, cats that have a very strong bond with their owner may show signs of separation anxiety

Keep an eye out for out of the ordinary behavior when gone for any length of time

There are measures that can be taken to help prevent a cat from rebellious behavior while away from home:


Recognize the signs

Of course, the most important factor in preventing separation anxiety is knowing when your cat is experiencing it

Maybe your roommate or even a neighbor has heard your cat meowing in the window constantly or making other types of vocalizations for prolonged periods of time

Look out for bald spots, scabs and hair loss as they could be a result of excessive grooming from stress

Lastly, urination on your belongings or near the front door are tell tale signs of separation anxiety

Anything abnormal in your cats behavior should be taken into consideration


Meeting your cat’s needs

Cat’s love routine
