@SimplyChic11:  Emo cat! Lol! I haven’t ever classified this as separation anxiety though I suppose it makes sense. My kitty does the same thing. I just call her name when she does this and she’ll usually come over. Otherwise, it’s her signal to us that she’s about to go batshit crazy. I’ve had 3 other cats in the past that all did this, even a brother and sister pair (that still live with my parents, since they’re technically their cats). I have no idea how to stop the behavior.

I have no real useful words but I understand and my kitty STILL does it, even at 4 – we got her when she was 6 months.

That is so sad… My aunt has two adopted shelter cats. They were both around 2 when she got them and the boy cat is the only one we know a history on. He was given back from his kittenhood home. He is so timid and like he doesn’t want to trust that you won’t hurt him. He was really scared of men and their voices for a few months until he adjusted. I think you just need to wait it out… I can’t imagine the kind of horrors these poor kitties have been through. Just keep showing them love and I think they’ll eventually come around!

@SimplyChic11:  Our dog likes to be in the same room as us. Its only really a problem when I go to sleep and Fiance is still up. She likes to scratch at the door until I let her in then if I close the door she scratches it until she gets let back out into the room Fiance is in. Sometimes if she has something to snuggle with that smells like us it makes her feel better.
