Leaving your cat home alone

Do you feel bad when you have to leave your cat home alone? Many people do feel bad when this happens. It's only natural. But life goes on and we must go along with it.

It's a busy world. And like most of us, you've got places to go, things to do and people to see. Whether you're off to work, school or shopping, or out for a nice dinner and a movie, chances are you spend a lot of time away from home. And much of the time, your cat cannot come along.

Cats have very little to occupy their time while you're gone. (We're their entertainment.) Some cats seem content to nap away their day while you're out of the house. Other cats have a much harder time coping with the situation when they're home all alone. These cats can suffer from boredom, stress or separation anxiety.

So how do you know if your cat is unhappy about being left alone?

With some cats it's obvious. They may vomit while you're gone. There may be signs of inappropriate elimination - some will practice urine marking while others urinate or defecate in the house. Some cats become almost anorexic. Others groom themselves incessantly to calm their nerves. Many cats will sulk, hide, slink away from you or appear depressed. Some cats vocalize their dissatisfaction by crying, moaning or loudly meowing right after you leave the house. (You might want to set up a tape recorder while you're gone to see if this happens to your cat.)

If your cat is bored, anxious, depressed or destructive while you're away, "environmental enrichment" can help. When you give your cat plenty of fun things to do and see, his unhappy time alone can be transformed into a very satisfying day. Here are some suggestions:

• Invest in a good cat tree and position it near a window with a good view
• Leave plenty of fun toys for your cat to enjoy while you're gone (like a good catnip toy)
• Tire him out with some active play before you go
• Try something that will really hold his interest, like the Cat Sitter DVD

If you haven't seen the Cat Sitter DVD yet, you really must check it out. It's been featured on "The Ellen Show" and in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Cat Fancy . Once you see it, you will understand what all of the buzz is about. This DVD is amazing! It was made especially for cats, to entertain them for hours on end while you're away. It features lots of animals (mice, fish, birds, squirrels, butterflies and more) outside in their natural environment. When your cat watches, he will think he's outside with his new friends joining in the fun!

Cats just love this DVD. It keeps them actively entertained for hours on end. And once you find out which tracks are your cat's favorites, you can even personalize his viewing adventure using the continuous loop scene selection feature.

When your cat is stuck inside all alone, the Cat Sitter DVD can bring the outside world in. Lots of people swear by it, and I can certainly see why. My staff and I tried it on our own kitties and they were simply GLUED to the TV set!
