Next: Answers to Cat Holiday Behavior Problems
Destructive behavior is directly linked to boredom. Simply put, your cat is looking for something to do while home alone. Change your routine to allow for a ten-minute game with a wand or a laser toy before you go off to work. That will allow him to take a contented nap soon after you leave.
A great way to give him something to do during the day is to place his food in a puzzle game. This will keep him busy extracting her kibble and provide both mental and physical stimulation. Once again, consider creating a treasure hunt around your home by placing her favorite toys and treats in different places. This will keep her on her toes and simultaneously hone her natural hunting instincts.
