Symptoms or signs of Separation Anxiety

Please keep in mind that if a cat’s behavior is caused by Separation Anxiety, it usually doesn’t occur when his guardian is present.

  • Destructive behavior.
  • Eating too fast or not eating at all.
  • Vomiting food or hairballs.
  • Trying to escape.
  • The excitement upon returning home that’s out of the ordinary.
  • Elimination outside the box.
  • Excessive meowing, crying, or moaning.
  • Excessive self-grooming.


As pet owners, we know some of these can be frustrating. But from their point of view, cats believe they are helping you find your way home.

Why Cats develop Separation Anxiety?

Separation Anxiety it’s rarely diagnosed in cats because cats are typically loners. It’s more unlikely they’ll get distressed when their owners are away.

Some cats can be truly social creatures, and therefore they develop strong bonds with people and other animals. When these relationships get interrupted in any way, this may show signs of separation anxiety in cats.

How to Ease Separation Anxiety in Cats?

Thankfully, Separation Anxiety is not necessarily a permanent health issue, and there are actions you can take and items you can buy to minimize and treat your cat’s anxiety.

  • Keep arrivals and departure low key (Don’t announce either way).
  • Remove departure routines. Whatever you do before you leave, make sure you do it other times while staying at home, or with plenty of time before leaving the house.
  • Start with shorter absences first.
  • Leave a radio, TV, show or channel that is often when you’re there.
  • Provide as many toys and puzzles as possible for playtime while you’re gone.
  • If possible and approved by your vet, add a room diffuser or pheromones to provide calming scent for your cat.
  • Hide his food in toys that make them work in channel prey instincts.
  • Create a safe space (safe haven or refuge) for your cats.


While these are some of the things. We always recommend you to go to your vet as there may be other reasons behind certain behaviors, and it’s crucial to find early illnesses for early treatment for your cat’s wellness.
