Hello Everyone Reading! I'm so happy that I joined this site becase as a new cat owner I've gotten so muich help and good advice, plus many ideas from reading other posts. This one here is in regards to me and my cat, Pickles. She is VERY spoiled (meaning having every cat toy out there, and sharing meal with me, a taste here and there depending if its safe) Anyways, I've been having emotional attachment problems with her. Im on anti-depressents and anxiety meds as it is already, not due to this issue, just wanted to let you know that thats not the answer for me on this. She has watched robins in a nest that we had...3 batches of eggs, the babies all came and gone and she LOVED sitting and watching them. Shes an indoor cat but i do take her out on a leash...she's been out about 5 times already. But now the weather is getting chilly and she doesnt understand that i dont want her to go out there, so what do i do when she sits and meows at the door. That makes me VERY SAD for her. Plus now due to no robins being there, I put up 4 bird feeders in front of the deck so she can watch them out the patio window, and i have a blanket she can even sit on. She meows at that too because its like she wants to go outside. It just seems to me, that i'm not giving her what she needs...even though she is the most cared for cat i know around here. At work, I ACTUALLY start tearing up and crying because i think to myself that she is home all alone, and is lonely. Another cat isnt in the question because my boyfriend will not let me get another one. I'm lucky to have gotten this one...I adopted her from the humane society because she was a stray. She is such a sweet cute cat. She waits for me at the door when she hears my garage door open when i get home from work, and then stands on her hind legs to be picked up. Such an AWESOME cat. Does anyone though have any ADVICE FOR ME???? I really could use the support badly!!! Thank you so very much for being on this site and helping people out there. I dont know what I would have done in some situations w/o you all here. Thank you again!
