The duration for which you can leave your cat home alone depends on their age, health, and specific needs.
Kittens require more attention and should not be left alone for extended periods, ideally no more than a couple of hours.
Adult cats can generally handle longer periods alone, but it's recommended not to exceed 8-12 hours.
Senior cats may need more frequent check-ins, as they might have special health requirements.
Ensure your cat has access to fresh food and water, and consider timed feeders if you'll be away for an extended time.
Leave toys, scratching posts, and cozy spots for your cat to stay entertained and comfortable.
Some cats may suffer from separation anxiety, so it's important to understand your cat's emotions and address their needs.
