If you work a lot and are away from home for long hours at a time you may be worried your cat will be feeling lonely, but don't worry. With a few tips and tricks you can make this less stressful for your furry friend as they will undoubtedly miss you and probably will feel lonely without you there.
There are a few ways in which you might make them feel comfortable in your absence. Provide them with clean bowls of freshwater around the house, some food, a few toys to play with, clean cat litter and a warm environment. Cats should never be put away in a closed room as they may feel trapped and anxious and require space to move around freely.
A cat tree and open cardboard boxes may also help to entertain them while you’re away.
As your cat will be used to social interaction and your company, another thing that helps cats stay calm in your absence is having the tv left on and having a timer for your lamps will also indicate to your cat you will be home soon when they come on.
