HOW CAN I TELL IF MY CAT HAS SEPARATION ANXIETY?
Because feline separation anxiety is more subtle than its canine counterpart, cases can go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed for years! If you suspect your kitty may have separation anxiety, keep an eye out for these symptoms:
Eliminating outside the litter box or on your bed or clothes
Over-grooming (This is like the cat version of biting one’s fingernails.)
Loss of appetite, vomiting, or diarrhea
Destructive behavior, such as knocking things off tables and countertops, and scratching the door
Excessive meowing (This doesn’t always happen, but when it does, it’s a sure sign of separation anxiety.)
