    Your poor kitty is lonely! Unfortunately, being sprayed with water won't cure lonliness. He's probably trying to get out to look for his former companions. If he isn't neutered, that could be your first step to calming him down. You are his anchor now. His friends are gone and all he has is you. When you get home at night, spend a lot of time cuddling and playing with him. You can break the playtime up if there are other things you need to be doing, but it should last at least an hour or so total. Feather teasers, laser lights, he can even be taught to retrieve a ball. Even though you may be busy, he's not. He's bored, restless and lonely and needs a lot of TLC and reassurance right now.

    I am sure he is just lonely and needs lots of Love and reassurance. Whenever I have found new homes for my cats furry roomates I noticed he would be searching for them. There are lots of toys that you can buy for him to play with that will help some. Try spending lots of time with him when you first come home and try getting him to sleep with you at night during this transition. He may feel really lonely and just need you to reassure him that it will be ok. I hope you get help with this- Love Leena and Pierre Henry
