    Struggling with solo play

    I have the exact same problem, also single cat household. He only ever wants to play with me and needs me to be involved in the play otherwise he just gets bored. Tried auto toys buthe isn't interested. I'm hoping he'll calm down as he gets older as he's very young only 6 months and a bit still.

    This ones been puzzling me for ages so any insight would be appreciated. I work from the office 2 days a week. I leave the house at around 850 and then come home at 630. On these days, i feed my cat via the auto feeder and in the morning i feed him myself. When i get home, he paces around...

    Is it ok not to play with my cats at all for a day?

    I think it's more important to play with your cat everyday if you only have one. Since you have two, you can relax a bit but it's great that you're thinking of their boredom levels.

    Attention seeking kitten

    Im Gonna buy some auto toys to see if this helps but a large part of the playing is that I have to be involved. He’s not the best at playing alone. May be because he’s only ever known playing with his siblings/me or just coz he’s a sooky boy

    24/7 vet chat line - worth 45 dollars a month?

    Hi everyone I've come across this website called vetchat which is like an open chat room which connects you to a vet. It claims to be 24/7, but there's a 45 dollar a month fee. I'm thinking this may be helpful for me to just have someone on call with my questions to do with humphrey, but am...

    Attention seeking kitten

    haha that's so lovely he can be a handful though, i someitmes wonder how much of this behavoiur is fuelled by my overly affectionate ways to him. Maybe if i wasn't so lovey he wouldn't of been so needy? But he's such a lovely cat, i just wish he didn't meow for attentio all the time. I think a...

    Attention seeking kitten

    Hi everyone Just posting about humphrey again. I'm having issues with getting him to play by himself. I was getting really worried about his meowing, but i upped his food intake which seemed to help but it turns out he's at it again. What i've noticed is that he'll stop when i'm playing with...

    my kitten keeps randomly meowing?

    My 6 month old was randomly meowing all the time but i found out recently that i had been underfeeding him. He's still a chatty fellow but it's a completely different type of meow when he's hungry compared to when he's just being chatty. I find most people usually have the opposite issue where...

    Experienced single cat owners: What's your final word on the single cat experience?

    I'm looking for the final say on it. After years of being a single cat owner, how would you sum it up? I'm a new single cat owner and im still navigating the experience.

    Wondering if my kitten is mixed

    just a question regarding breed, my humphreys breeder was selling her kittens as 'british shorthair' kittens online but when i went to visit, i noticed only the father is bsh and not the mother. I don't regret buying humphrey because he's wonderful and I love him but i just want to confirm, she...

Thank you so much for sharing, it's really reassuring me that im not the only one dealing with this. Humphrey is a lovely cat and I can sense that he's going...
