I can't help it! (Part 2 of 2)

Q. The same woman asked me to question the grey tabby cat about why he goes absolutely crazy when he is left alone overnight or longer in the house, even with someone checking in on him. She wanted to know what he’d be most comfortable with if she and her friend wanted to go away for a few days or a week even, to the cottage without him. ( He couldn’t handle car rides so she didn’t want to put him through that, even though he would love being at the cottage).

A. He told me that he doesn’t just get upset or stressed out when he’s locked up alone in the house overnight, he has actual panic attacks that turn into full blown, uncontrollable claustrophobia attacks. He said he’d be much happier being left outside when they need to go away. He asked that one of the neighbors just leave him some food and water outside each day. That was his definite preference.
