Why Does My Cat Prefer My Neighbour?

As cat owners, none of us like to entertain the thought that if we weren’t around our cats would be just as happy with someone else – perish the thought! However, I’m afraid to say that for our fickle feline friends this is absolutely true.

But what about if you are still around and yet have to suffer the ignominy of your vaguely embarrassed neighbour telling you that your beloved cat is making himself at home on their sofa - daily.

Sadly, this is not an uncommon occurrence and if it’s a situation that you find yourself in, it’s time to take a long hard look at what type of home you’ve made for your cat.

A cat’s territory, of which the home is part, is more important to him than the people in it. This is the opposite to dogs for whom their owners are more important than anything else in the universe. So, it’s for this reason that cats need lots of resources in the home that allow them to perform their species-specific behaviour.
