There are a few reasons why your cat may be clingy. It could be that they were raised in a single-cat household and didn’t learn how to socialize with other cats. It could also be that they’re just naturally needy cats.
How to help a clingy cat
Whatever the reason, there are a few things you can do to help your clingy cat be more comfortable.
First, try to provide them with plenty of opportunities to socialize. If you have other cats in your home, encourage them to play and interact with each other. You can also take your cat to a cat cafe or other place where they can meet and mingle with other felines.
Second, make sure you’re providing enough attention and affection. Clingy cats often crave attention and may feel neglected if they don’t get it. Spend time petting, playing, and talking to your cat every day.
Finally, give them lots of toys and scratch objects. This will help keep them occupied and help redirect their clinginess into positive behaviors.
If you have a clingy cat, don’t despair. With a little patience and effort, you can help them feel more comfortable and social!
