Is your cat overeating? Sleeping more than usual? Overgrooming? Depressed? Naughty? If so, you may have a bored kitty on your hands.
How do you know if it's boredom or something else?
First, have the vet check your cat to rule out a medical issue such as a urinary tract infection. If your kitty gets a clean bill of health, she might just need additional stimulation, especially if you are gone for long periods of time during the day.
While it’s always safer to keep your furry friend in the house, indoor cats lack the natural stimulators that outdoor cats encounter. To solve this problem, you need to enhance your cat’s indoor environment so they can experience what they might be missing outside but in a safe way.
