I have two girls. They are litter mates. And have only been apart for the first six months of their lives, and even then, they saw each other on a regular basis. Which isn't really my point. But anywho.
I have had Neko from eight weeks, and she is a wonderful cat. I got her to replace my last cat who had been twenty. And she's doing an amazing job.
I love her to pieces. Same with her sister. Neko, the one I've had from the start has separation anxiety. It's fairly uncommon in cats. But she does have it. She wants to be with me every minute of the day. And has problems when I leave for a couple of hours. She's gotten better, now she will talk to the rest of my family when I'm gone, but before all she would do was sit at the window and wait for me to get home. She still stops whatever she's doing and comes to my side the minute I walk in the door. And from then on she will constantly check in on me, make sure I'm still there. My biggest problem is, I do live in pet care as a part time job, which means that every few months I have to go away from anywhere for a few days to a few weeks. When I do that she still eats, but she is very unhappy. And will pee on my bed and wait for me to come home. I'm always in trouble when I go away for a few days, but as soon as I'm home she forgives me. Does anyone know how I can handle this?
I do have some issues with her, but they are medical and we are trying our best to deal with it. She suffers from chronic urinary tract infections during which she develops crystals in her urine and a high pH. Due to this we have gone to the vet for her pretty much once a month since I've had her. Which is starting to get a little pricey. And so far, for all of the tests that they've done and even the specialist we've seen. There has been nothing found, other than she has a very small bladder. No stones, and no bacteria. Is it possible that the two are connected?
