|Hey every fur. Huntys mom here. He peed on the recliner yesterday. I was home this time although I wasn't in the same room. So I cleaned it up and made sure with a black light that I got it all.
He was locked in a room for about 3 hours while my nieces were here. That's nothing new for him. I do it so they won't chase after him. My nieces are 4, 2 and 8 months. The 2 older ones did see him and said hi, but they didn't touch or chase him.
After they left, he was let out, jumped on top of the recliner and peed. To make matters worse, about an hour later someone in my neighborhood decided they were either going to shoot off fireworks or have target practice! For 10 minutes all I could hear was "bang!" Like gunshots. Hunter freaked out!!!! He ran and hid underneath the couch. Finally he came out and slept with me for the night.
Today he's just been weird. Hasn't peed on anything. Just where he is supposed to, in his litter box. I really think he's insecure and has separation anxiety. I read that I should leave out something for Hunter while I'm gone that smells of me. So I got out an old fleece blanket that will be his "blankey". I plugged in the dogs " comfort defuser" in my room to help him until I get the cash to buy a Feliway.
I feel like a bad pet mom. Like I'm not providing something that he is obviously lacking. What else can I do? He hadn't peed on anything in over a month!
How can I make Hunter feel more secure in his home?
