Should I leave my cat alone while on holidays?
February 18th, 2021 11:48
Most cats are content while their owners are away at work. For longer periods of time, however, it can be disruptive and even harmful to leave your cat by themselves. Here are our top reasons to book their staycation at Beau’s during your next getaway.
If you cat is injured during your time away, there will be no one to provide support and care. There are many ways for injuries to occur, such as:
- Car accidents
- Cat fights
- Animal bites (particularly snakes and spiders)
It is also important to note that during the warmer months, cats can experience heatstroke if they are not cared for.
While cats do enjoy solitary time, they are social creatures who enjoy interaction and companionship. Cats can experience severe loneliness if they are left alone for extended periods of time. This can be displayed through:
- Excessive grooming (pulling out fur)
- Litter box problems (urinating in places they shouldn’t)
- Hostile behaviour upon your return.
Cats are home-loving creatures of habit, who follow a similar routine each day. If their typical schedule is disrupted for extended periods of time, they may experience anxiety and stress.
If you want to ensure your cat is puuurfectly cared for, bring them to Beau’s Pet Hotel. We offer two types of climate-controlled, spacious, clean and comfortable cat accommodation.
