I suggest a kitty condo where she can climb and maybe have perch to look out the window while you are gone.

cat toys are wonderful. There are some that you can stick to the wall so when she pulls on it, it flings around. Like those door stoppers that used to be around. My cat loved them. She still does and she’s 16 years old! Most of the day she’ll probably sleep, but toys like that keep them busy because it moves.

@accorn:  I leave me cats out some food, water, a cat condo and toys.  Honestly, they sleep while I’m gone becuase the’ll be right where I left them! lol.  Cats are nocturnal so they like to sleep in the day.  Maybe get one of those little houses so she has her “bed.”  My cat loves feather toys.

Cats are actually fine alone (vs. dogs, who can’t be left alone for long periods of time). I would just give her plenty of toys and things to climb on, and she’ll probably sleep the day away. My cat likes those little fuzzy mice the best.

I think a cat video is a fun idea. My cat likes watching the TV when something looks interesting to her.

@accorn: we eventually had to get another cat. So essentially a pet for our pet :). Our cat was really lonely and his personality changed. He was used to having people home all the time. He began swatting at us when we would leave the door. He would meow at the front door and was more aloof. Post sibling cat, he is back to his old self

I have seen these things that look like an extention to a window sill, all you do is attach it to a window maybe one where the sun comes in and she can lounge and wait for you. lol its so funny your cat does that. I never had a kitten, mine have always been older, so I don’t know if its a phase kittens go through but she sounds like a dog. My dog totally waits by the door and has a sad look on her face when I leave, the cats look like they could care less! Enjoy the attention she is giving you! 🙂

We leave the radio on for our dogs (although I suspect they sleep most of the day).

What about some of those cardboard scratchie things that you rub catnip into? Or the balls with bells in them that you will forever be fishing out from under your fridge?
