The holiday season brings lots of changes to our home environment. Many of us decorate with exciting new things, cook different foods and have a flurry of visitors to celebrate our respective holidays. While humans look forward to this time of year, it can be a tough season for our cats.
Some cats love your friends and relatives. But for many cats, house guests are a source of anxiety and stress. Just being aware of this is the first step in easing your cat through this season. If your cat is shy, don’t force them to be a part of your festivities. In fact, your shy cat will appreciate being given a safe space to hide away from the crowd. If your cat is comfortable spending time in a room where you can close the door to visitors, do it. Don’t forget to provide water, food and an additional litter box. A dose of Feliway would be greatly appreciated as well.
