Separation anxiety is when an overly attached animal exhibits distressing behaviour upon being separated from its guardian.
Cats are generally considered a little more aloof and independent than most pets, so people rarely associate this condition with them.
Do not fall into this trap.
Felines come in all shapes and sizes, and with a variety of personalities, meaning there’s every chance your cat could be susceptible to what can be an extremely debilitating disorder.
A big issue for pet parents is the fact signs of separation anxiety in cats can be quite subtle. This means it is vital we know exactly what to look out for.
If symptoms go unnoticed or unchecked for a prolonged period of time, serious health complications can quickly arise.
