Symptoms of separation anxiety are: elimination outside of the litter box, excessive vocalization, vomiting, weight loss, excessive grooming and clawing at things around the house. These can all be symptoms of medical conditions, so it’s important to make sure your cat is in good health before assuming separation anxiety is to blame, check with your vet.
Be sure your cat has a variety of cat toys to keep busy with while you’re away and leave the radio on. Also a place for the cat to perch and observe the outside world.
Be calm when you say your goodbyes, your cat can pick up on those emotions. Also, cats start to notice cues that you’re leaving. Leave a t-shirt that smells like you.
