SEP­A­RA­TION ANX­I­ETY, TOO?

Animal Scene - - ADVOCATE -

Many peo­ple don’t re­al­ize that, just like dogs, cats can also suf­fer from sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety.

Fe­lines are ac­tu­ally highly so­cial an­i­mals who have the abil­ity to form strong bonds with their guardians and other

critters, ac­cord­ing to an ar­ti­cle on fe­line sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety in Cathealth.com. Cats who were or­phaned or weaned too early may be more prone to sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety, based on a re­port by Pam John­son-ben­nett for Cat­be­hav­ioras­so­ci­ates.com.

A com­pan­ion an­i­mal who misses their hu­man can take it out on ob­jects and dam­age them, such as this ce­ramic pot.
