One year old cat cries whenever we leave
(long beach, ca)
Hi we have a one year old female cat (indoor) that gets very upset ANYTIME we leave the house. You can hear her even as your pulling away.. We also have two dogs part time (they go to my boyfriends ex's every other month) and she does so much better when they are here. My question is should we consider getting another cat? and if so whats the best age range in order to make adjusting easy? Any help you can provide would be great... breaks our hearts to hear her cry.

Well it may be that rather being lonely it could be that she is suffering from separation anxiety.
Please see this page for more on this here
getting another cat is not often helpful and they can reject another cat coming into the home. there are no guarantees that they will ever become friends. if you do try and get another cat the general rule is to get a cat of the opposite sex who is used to living with other cats. And to use the introduction method described here
best wishes Kate
