The pandemic is creating life-threatening stress for cats

When the coronavirus took hold early last year, our pets began to receive more attention. Perhaps for the dog companions it has been a blessing. However, veterinarians have found that too much attention is causing cats to develop a number of stress-related medical conditions.


Too much stress

Veterinarians have seen a notable increase in blocked bladders in male cats, as well as cystitis in both male and female cats, over the past 18 months, according to a study published in The Times.

To minimize this potentially life-threatening stress for cats, experts recommend that owners create hiding places for their cats to improve their mood, as well as leaving food, water and litter dishes in quieter areas of the house. home.

Changes in a cat’s routine always have the potential to cause stress, as they are animals of habit . They like routine and any change can alter these habits.

Apparently, dogs do not suffer the same stress, rather they are feeling the opposite, seeing how little by little their owners go to work at the office instead of staying at home. Similarly, many confined puppies that have grown up in confinement from the COVID-19 pandemic have not had proper socialization, with people or with other dogs. The consequence is that many have become very protective , tending to have quite a bit of separation anxiety from having spent so much time continuously with their human companions.
