The fact that cats take care of their own needs sometimes gives us the freedom to leave them alone.
If we have to be away from home for two days, we can prepare food and water and go out.
But is this the case for all cats?
Experts say it’s possible in theory, but there are a few variations in practice.
First of all, we must not forget that cats, like dogs, suffer from separation anxiety. You can leave your cat home alone for a day at work. It would be enough if you were seen every 24 hours and showed love.
According to research on Animalpath.org, you can leave adult cats alone for up to 24 to 48 hours, and if you go beyond that, you’ll need to find someone to watch them.
DO NOT EXCEED 48 HOURS
The situation with kittens is somewhat complicated. If you have a cat under 4 months old, you can leave it alone for 2-4 hours (which can still leave such a love ball). You can leave cats from 4 to 5 months old alone at home until 5 a.m. and from 6 months old during your shift.
If you leave the house, you must leave him enough water, food and clean sand during this period. Apart from these, let me remind you that you should not leave your trash can open and that you should take precautions to prevent possible dangers, as cats are very prone to domestic accidents with their curious states.
Keep in mind that separations longer than 48 hours can change your cat’s attitude towards you. If you’re going to leave our friends who connected us to home life during the pandemic, I suggest you take that into account if you leave them alone next year.
CENTURIES OF COUPLE: IS THERE NO OTHER WAY?
The solution to most of our country’s problems, “It’s not enough for me to see” comes to understanding. Excerpt from the newspaper Son Posta, dated February 1, 1936 Ragip Sevki in the signed article, “How Istanbul was rid of dogs 330 years ago” The dogs were picked up from the city streets and transported from Eminönü to the Anatolian side with boats. “cleaning” fact is described. Pay attention to the last sentence of the article: “The dog was an animal that was not considered blessed by the Ottoman people, but was loved for its loyalty.” Again in 1910, dogs picked up from the streets of Istanbul were left on Hayless Island, their cries were heard from the mainland during their days of hunger and thirst, and animal lovers felt indescribable remorse. Even though we are now a country with all the technological blessings of the 21st century, we see and devastate dogs being picked up from the streets and pushed into conditions we know will end in death. I hope that solutions will be produced in accordance with the demands of the times, that the necessary punishments will be applied to dehumanized people who have committed the main crime of weaponizing dogs, and if shelter is to be the only solution, shelters with conditions adapted to the right to life is built.
A GOOD START FOR THE NEW YEAR

It is possible to open the door to a completely different world by filling your life with unpredictable beauty and unrequited love. Cats and dogs fighting for life on the streets and waiting to be adopted in shelters are waiting for you to change your life in a positive way. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity if it was me.
