You may recall this kitty who I worked with on Monday. Another behaviour she does is scratch carpets. She does this in certain areas/rooms, and also it has got progressively worse since the building works started. I asked her how she was feeling when she does this: annoyed, frustrated, i don’t like change, my routine has been abandoned. This was her way of expressing her emotions, keeping her energy moving which ultimately helps her feel safe.
A cat troubled by building works, feeling insecure, annoyed, frustrated, stressed. How they communicate what can help them feel safer and as an owner how we can have more compassion for them.
