Do Cats Feel Lonely?

Saturday, January 19, 2013

Cats are solitary creatures by nature which means that they don’t need anyone t0 survive. Dogs, on the hand require a pack leader weather it be a human or another dog. If you have an indoor cat and are gone for more than four hours a day, your cat may feel lonely. This varies from cat to cat. Some cats are perfectly fine being by themselves.

If your think that your cat is lonely, the solution may be to bring in another cat. Preferably, a younger cat of the opposite sex. Make sure that he or she is neutered. It may take awhile for the two cats to get used to each other. The cat that has been in the house the longest will always be the dominant cat. Make sure that you give the senior cat a little more attention than the younger cat. This is because when 2 or more cats live together, they develop a hierarchy in which one cat is the boss. I had a female and adopted another female and still, after 7 years, the younger cat feels threatened by the older one.

You can also try playing soft music while you’re out of the house, this may also curb their loneliness.

Remember, your pets count!
