Sometimes it happens that people take home a cat that previously lived with other owners. And it is very interesting to know how the purr feels in a new house, new conditions and how long it will take to adapt to new conditions.
In the transition to an unfamiliar place, the cat begins to experience severe stress which can last for almost a week, or even more. The animal most often hammered under the bed and refuses to communicate with anyone, and also refuses to eat.
But after a certain period of time, she begins to gradually adapt to the new environment and, whether she likes it or not, she comes out of her hiding place, mainly because she wants to eat. Then the curious feline nature begins to explore the house, not missing even the most secluded corners.
And according to the studies of experts, cats stop missing their former owners, and even remember them in two months. But the most curious thing is that cats miss not their owners more, but the house they live in.
This circumstance greatly distinguishes them from dogs that remember their owners until the end of their lives and always yearn for them. This isn’t to say that cats don’t love their owners, but you definitely can’t get such loyalty as from a dog.
Cats very quickly get used to unfamiliar places and soon there will be a feeling that they have spent their whole lives with them. But familiar territory, smells and atmosphere are still more important for them.
