I was a small kitten when I was picked up by my owner and since there was another male cat in the house, I was confined to an enclosed porch where my owner has his room. So I was with him for a long time and have grown very fond of him and slept with him every night and was always on his lap when he was using the computer. He definitely loves me very much as I do him but now if he is missing for any length of time I yowl and cry incessantly and hide under the bed or behind the entertainment center and I stop eating. I just can't be away from him for any length of time and the other humans that live here try and console me but I push away from them and hide and cry all the time. He is at a loss as to what to do since he was away for a week and I stopped eating and hid for days at a time:(( He wanted me to write to the great cat people @ Catster to see what he can do...He loves me so much but it's hard when he can't go away for any length of time without me becoming a wreck....HELP!!!!!!
