Hello, I have recently begun a full time job and have been away from the house for long periods of time (10-14 hours a day). I am planning on living at home for a few months to save up some money, and my mom cheerfully looks after and feeds my babies their afternoon snack while I am away. Lately she has been telling me that she plays with Marble etc but hasn't seen Mia the whole day. I think Mia is very much a 1 person type of cat (she's currently stretched out over me, purring, as I'm typing this) and may be experiencing some anxiety when I am gone so long because I see her a lot on the days I am home. She already has pica, which is ocd/anxiety based but the vet refused to give me meds to help her unless we went to behavioral therapy, which I believe is a waste of money- she's a CAT. I just don't think any cat would respond as well as a dog or human due to their nature. Anyway, what can I do to help her out?
