Well you need to think about the potential consequences of this crisis, now and in the future. What if people become ill and there’s no one to look after their cats?

Well you need to think about the potential consequences of this crisis, now and in the future.

What if people become ill and there’s no one to look after their cats?

Will the cats end up as strays?

What if people have been made unemployed or laid off and can’t afford to feed their families, let alone their cats?

Will the cats end up as strays?

So potentially, there could be a LOT of hungry stray cats out there which could have a detrimental effect on the wildlife.

Also, cat mating season is generally from March to September.

What if people can’t afford to get their cats neutered?

Increase in stray cat population + increase in unneutered cats = problems FOR their food supply chain of prey.

In a weird kind of twisted logic, if people who hate cats and love wildlife can help vulnerable people and their cats then it is a win-win situation for ALL!

Spare a thought for all those cats who are in a state of bewilderment.

Believe it or not, some cats actually like it when their humans are out all day. Their peace has now been shattered and they may have to resort to the nearest hedge or cupboard for a bit of peace and quiet. At least the weather is getting warmer!

I can just imagine what the conversation between the cats would be – maybe this would be a good idea for a Story Competition!

Seriously though, if you think your cat may be getting stressed by too much noise or too much attention (yes, I know it’s difficult but leave the cat alone!) then maybe make a few changes now before problems start to appear.

For any Cat Behaviourists out there, this topic would make a very good article or Q&A section!
