Most cat owners are usually the ones stressed out as they deal with shredded curtains and ripped up couches. However, just because you may be stressed out doesn’t mean your cat should be too, even if it’s the cause of all your stress.
To determine if your cat is stressed out, look for common signs such as the cat hiding, being excessively jumpy, or being especially clingy. Stress isn’t good for cats so do what you can to alleviate this stress such as playing with you cat, providing scratching posts and hiding places for a cat to stay, or simply keeping other animals or people away from he cat until it can adjust. The less stressed out your cat is, the happier it will be, regardless of your own level of stress.
