Cats are territorial animals and won’t like being away from home for extended periods of time. They might even react with aggression if you take them to stay with someone else as they will feel like their territory is being trespassed upon. Cats prefer having their own space and so will feel stressed if they have to continuously be in another house for any period of time.
Therefore, it is best that cats don’t stay at another house for long periods of time. However, if you live in a complex urban environment or regularly visit friends or relatives who do not have pets then it would be okay to take your cat along with you occasionally. Here we discuss some tips that can help keep your cat happy when you are away from home while also ensuring the safety of other residents in the building.
Can I take my cat to another house?
It is not recommended to leave your cat with a friend or relative as they may not be able to provide the care that your cat deserves. If you do wish to take your cat with you, then you should make sure that they have their own food and water. They should also have their own litter tray and toys.
It is important that the place where you leave your cat has a regular cleaning schedule, including the litter tray, so it will always be fresh for them. You can also try using Feliway diffusers to help relax your cat when you are away from home.
Can my cat stay at my friends house?
It is best to avoid having your cat stay at your friends house. However, if you are going to be away from home for a long period of time and the owners of the building will allow it, it may be worth considering taking your cat with you.
To ensure that this doesn’t become a problem for anyone, consider doing the following:
-Discuss the issue with your friends before bringing your cat along. You should ask them about their experience with cats and whether they have any allergies or other issues that would make staying at their house unpleasant for your cat.
-Bring lots of toys so that your cat can occupy themselves while you are away.
Can I take my cat for a sleepover?
If you are going to be away from home for long periods of time, then it is best that your cat stays at a place where they can have their own space. It is important to keep your cat’s stress levels low as this could lead to aggression or destructive behavior when it comes back home.
You should also be sure that the facility where you house your cat has a veterinarian on call, otherwise there is the risk of your cat contracting an illness during their stay.
Before taking your cat away, make sure they have enough food and water in case they are hungry or thirsty while you are away.
Do cats remember different houses?
Cats are creatures of habit and so will generally expect a familiar environment when they are taken away from home. This means that they won’t like being in a new place.
It is best to keep your cats at home as much as possible and have them stay there until you return. Try to avoid leaving your cat overnight at another house if possible. If this is unavoidable, make sure that the cat has its own space where it can sleep and relax which should be separate from any other pets in the house.
