Many owners will know that cats can be easily stressed and external factors such as moving house, change of diet and routine etc. can have a dramatic effect on our feline friends.
Recently I read an article that linked stress to Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (that's the technical name for a lower urinary tract disorder) which in itself highlights the need to ensure our feline friends maintain a calm equilibrium.
I have written previously about how we can help our cats, by offering a regular routine and giving them the resources to fulfil their daily needs but even with these practical needs met a stressful environment will undo these measures.
Cats that are stressed are likely to withdraw, reduce their food intake and are known to be more likely to run away.
I recently came across a nifty FREE resource that may help owners ascertain whether their cats may be feeling stressed and invite you to try out the Feline Stress Calculator here
