Believe it or not, you can be gone just for an hour so off to the mall, and she misses you terribly already.
If she’s a young girl, she might be prone to a little scratching on your nice settees in the living room. And if your young cat is a young fellah, he might just indulge in a little old fashioned cat spraying. This rather unpleasant feline practice is rather old fashioned because the habit is as old as the hills. In fact, cats, still out in the wild, have been spraying their pee for thousands of years.
No matter how domesticated your young ones are, they will always have the distant echo of the call of the wilds ringing in their rather sensitive ears. Folks are often rather surprised, let alone quite upset, to find the house ripped to shreds or smelling rather bad when they come back from the shops. They were under the misguided perception that cats won’t bother much when the folks leave the house, just for a couple of hours, or a whole day.
They were quite right in believing that cats are rather independent creatures. But leave them alone for a day and a half, even in the house with them; with nothing to do but scratch their fleas and they will become rather bored. And yes, although they are independent, they miss you quite terribly when you’re gone. Believe this or not, cats are more loving than you are even. Especially when you try your best to love them back, notice how they rub their torso up against your leg every now and then.
Do not for a moment always believe that they want something from you. Just pamper them already.
