How Long Can You Leave Your Cat Alone?
A healthy cat will be perfectly fine for a weekend. Longer periods raise concerns.
One of the perks of being a cat lover is that you donít have to make sure youíre home several times a day to walk your pet. Indeed, a feline can spend more than a day by herself and be none the worse for the solitude. Even cats who crave company would rather be left in a familiar environment than boarded at a facility. Theyíll take the temporary loneliness over the stress of being put in a crate, brought out to the car, driven to the boarderís, and having to contend with the sights, odors, and sounds of cats they donít know.
