Leaving Your Cat Home Alone

One of the great things about our feline friends is that they’re rather independent. If you have to leave for work for most of the day, your cat will be fine! Here are some tips from a Scottsdale, AZ veterinarian for leaving Fluffy home alone.

Food and Water

Always make sure your cat has food and water as necessary when you’re not home. All pets need proper hydration; your cat should have a dish of cool, fresh water available at all times. Ask your veterinarian to recommend a great food for your cat that’s appropriate for her age, weight, and body condition.

Comfortable Bed

It’s a good bet that your cat will spend most of her alone time sleeping. Make sure she has a comfortable bed or two around the house for her napping pleasure.

Extended Alone Time

While cats are fine on their own for a while, it’s best to have someone look in on your pet if you’ll be gone for longer than a day or two. This way, your cat’s food and water can be refreshed if necessary and you can be sure that Fluffy is okay.
