Cat Depression

It's true, cats just like people can fall into a depressed state of mind. You can usually tell if something is off about your cat if they are acting out or just not being themselves. If it isn't properly dealt with, they can become ill no one wants that.

A big change in their world can trigger depression such as moving to a new home, being put in a shelter, death of another animal or person in the family home or maybe something has changed in your life and routine to where you aren't around nearly as often as you used to be. These are all things to take into consideration.

If your cat has a loss in appetite, excessive sleeping, aggressive behavior or not using their litter box at all you may want to take them into the vet to see what can be done. These are just a few signs of cat depression and they need to be addressed immediately. Don't put these things off, you are all they have and they depend on you.
