How to Tell If a Cat Is Depressed

Dr. Jace King, DVM of the Washington Family Veterinary Clinic in St. George, Utah, offered some very helpful advice in regard to recognizing the signs and symptoms of feline depression. Assisting him was a sweet tabby cat named Austin, who was feeling a bit frisky, but not particularly depressed.

Generally when a cat is depressed it’s it’s because something’s going on with them, a sickness or some problem generally. A cat if it’s depressed won’t play with you, they won’t get mad, they won’t ask you stimulate them, they won’t react to your stimulus. Another big a big sign of cat depression is generally marking or a cat that starts urinating in the wrong places in the house.
