We are in between living situations and my cat and I are basically living in one bedroom. The house we are in has three cats and a large dog that I really don’t trust, that’s why my cat stays in the room. I come in and out. I do my best to spend lots of time with her. The other day, while lying on the bed, I was on my iPad, she rubbed up against me, I thought she was laying down, then realized she had pooped! She has never done this before. Is she unhappy with our living arrangement?
Yes, she is probably very unhappy. Try giving her things that will entertain her while you are gone, like a fish toy or a laser she can chase. Also, try getting her a seat where she can look outside, one of the cat's favorite things to do. Also, check her litter. Sometimes the feel of the litter, coupled with the stress can cause your cat to leave you hints about their displeasure.
