will cat get annoyed?

by Natasha

i'm deciding to get a cat and want to learn about cats as much as I can before I get one. because my whole house won't be cat-proofed, when i'm at school, or not at home, will it be ok to put the cat in 1 room that is cat-proofed until i come back? will the cat get angry and start scarching the door or try to get out of the room?

Hi well you are asking a very difficult question really. Cats which are older and perhaps used to being inside all day may be Ok being in one room all day whith a littler tray ,etc but younger cats who are full of energy may find it distressing and every boring and yes they could become frustrted and start to cry and scratch to get out etc.

My personal opnion is that cats should not be confined to small areas for long periods of time on a regular basis. i think it is unfair to a animal which is so active and inquisitive and intelligent.

Why not consider a smaller animal like a hamster, gerbil or guinea pig if space is an issue. these animals can make great pets are require a much smaller living environment.

Sorry if this was not the answer you were hoping for, but I am only telling you what i believe to be right.

Check out the rest of my pages on my site for more general information about cats. the more you know about them the more you will understand their needs etc to live a happy life.

best wishes Kate
