I’ve had cats around the house for as long as I can remember. They would even sleep in my crib with me before I had an actual bed! For the first time ever, I am without my own cat and have decided to offer cat sitting and daycare services alongside my canine-related offerings. Of course cats are very different, and often become stressed when removed from familiar territory. I am an expert at relieving this stress, but That is why I do not offer daycare in my home. The back & forth travel is likely to produce more stress than leaving them alone for the day.
Most cat owners I speak to can point to several behaviors their cats engage in that are undesirable for some reason. They are destructive, spiteful, regularly disrupt sleep, etc. They speak of these issues as if that is just how cats are, and they’ve learned to live with it. In almost every situation there is a way to correct the behavior with just a little patience and consistency. While cats don’t possess the same desire to please us that dogs do, they are almost always acting out because one or more of their needs are not being met. This topic is discussed in depth in the Feline Behavior Primer.
