I have separation anxiety. Mommy found out by video recording me years ago when I was alone at home.
I only whine, cry, howl.... anything vocal. And I also run around the house looking for anyone home.
When they leave the house, they will fill up several (used to be only 2) hollow toys with treats. I always get
Mommy does not think that crate training me will help
So, I would have to go to daycare if the hoomans need to go out for at least 3 hours. For 1-2 hours, they would just heavy-heartedly let me stay at home by myself if there's no better choice.*
* We don't own a car. Travelling with a pet (dog) in taxis can be a hassle. Not all taxi drivers are animal lovers; some are allergic to dog/cat and would refuse to take us. Those who do, we make sure that I am in my crate. Pets are not allowed in public buses and subway trains. Pet taxis (private) are expensive. Luckily nowadays there are Uber and the like, making it easier.
This was how stressed out and tired I was from all the crying and running and panting!
When mom's back, I would follow her like a glue! I'd rest only after she's settled down on the couch.
noticed that I was wearing diapers?? because I would 'forget' to pee in my pee tray and sometimes leave pawprints all over the floor after stepping on my urine.
I have a (travel) crate that is slightly bigger, not as big as a playpen, but taller than when I'm standing and I can turn around in it. This crate is used when mommy needs to just go across the street to grab some food supplies. For about 20 minutes or so. I'd try to let the neighbors know too!
Who else has separation anxiety like me? :p
