Anyone see cats with separation anxiety? Not separation from the owners either.
I've had Eric & Ernie since they were 4 months old, they were litter mates, and I may always feel a little bad for taking them from their momma.
They always slept curled up together for the first month at home, less so these days.
They're indoor/outdoor cats, I have dogs and have a dog door which the cats use freely. But lately, whenever Eric goes out, Ernie is a mess. He has to be cuddled, needs his comfort blanket, or stomps around the place, searching for his brother, making trilling noises. Of course, when his brother comes home, they sniff at each other then generally ignore each other. But when Eric goes out again, Ernie seems to panic.
Bizarrely, it's Ernie who once stayed out all night, giving ME a panic attack - I was walking the streets at 2 a.m. in my pajamas, banging food tins. He turned up the next morning for his breakfast, as if nothing happened.
Whenever Ernie goes out, Eric doesn't make such a fuss...
