My kitty doesn’t love me anymore???:,(

Post by Carolyn573 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 5:46 pm

Hi all. I have a wonderful little boy who I recently adopted from the SPCA to act as a support animal as I have pretty severe mental illness. While we were living in my parents home he was a perfect lil angel and always wanted cuddles and attention. We recently moved him into my dorm room where he’ll be staying with me and my 3 roommates in a suite style dorm for about another month and a half until the semester is over. I’m sure he is just stressed out about being in a new environment with a bit less space but he doesn’t want me to pet him anymore and prefers to sleep in my roommates bed. I don’t mind if he wants to cuddle with them but I would like him to trust me as I provide most of his care. Any tips for gaining his trust again?

Food. And fun games with a feather on a string. And a peaceful lap when everyone else is out of the way. But cooked boneless chicken is the great persuader, I have found, and few cats stay stand offish with the person who provides three meals a day!

there is often no telling why a cat is doing what it's doing! i get worried that anby doesn't love me anymore sometimes, too, but she always seems to put up with me at the end of the day.

As you say, he is confused by the new environment (and probably different people).

I'm sure he'll perk up.
