Meanwhile, as wonderful as rescuing pets makes us and them feel, you can’t deny that the adoption procedure is difficult for the animals that may have been harmed in the past. With the lovely crew at the PDSA, the UK’s top vet charity, we talked about how to spot the signs of stress and how to assist our pets cope.

#3 A Kitten Followed My Mail Cart For Four Blocks. Went Back Later To Find Her Huddled By A Garbage Pile. Guess I Adopted A Kitten

Adopting a pet isn't as simple as going to your local shelter and selecting a litter of kittens to take home. Procedures must be followed. Basically, any decent shelter will make an attempt to see if you and your prospective best friend are a suitable match. That could entail filling out some paperwork or having a conversation about whether you'll have enough space at home for them and how busy your calendar is.

After all, caring for a pet isn't all fun and games (though it is a big part of it!)—you're responsible for another person's life. That entails feeding it, providing it with all of the love and medical attention it requires, ensuring that it gets along with your other pets, and ensuring that it adjusts to its new home properly.

For instance, PDSA vet Anna Ewers Clark told that you need to consider the logistics of having multiple cats. We had a conversation with her about what to do if your cat, a notoriously subtle and territorial creature, is stressed out and anxious.

“Make sure you have at least one resource for each cat, plus one extra, if you have a multi-cat family that is showing indications of stress. Provide three of everything—bowls, beds, litter trays, and so on—if you have two cats. “Distribute these items throughout your home so they can always avoid each other if they want to,” she advised.

Even while some pets prefer each other's company, Vet Anna advises that you should provide adequate room for them to be alone if they so desire. “It's critical to ensure that your cats can get around without colliding with one another. This might be achieved by providing plenty of entrances/exits for them to use, or by establishing ‘vertical space' with high shelves or furniture, allowing your cats to pass each other at various levels,” she told that.

Recognizing whether your pet is unhappy, on the other hand, may be more difficult than you think. They won't tell you straight up that something is wrong, like a human would (though, to be completely fair, people tend to be very secretive and passive-aggressive, too). While some creatures will display extremely clear signs of illness, others will only show very subtle, nuanced signs.

This subtle discontent and tension, according to PDSA vet Anna, might appear in ways that compel the owner to constantly compare their present acts to their prior ones. In other words, you must always keep your eyes and ears open. “Stressed cats may hide more, move less, sleep more, over-groom themselves, or be less willing to play,” she explained.

“They may simply spend less time in the house, preferring to spend time outside rather than being forced to spend time in ‘shared territory,' or they may begin to avoid certain areas of the house.”

Meanwhile, acute or chronic stress can have devastating consequences. In cats, for example, it can cause them to become physically ill and cause feline cystitis, a painful bladder illness. “Contact your veterinarian right away if your cat has trouble urinating, has blood in their urine, or changes their toileting habits,” the expert said.
