They Have a Good Appetite
A healthy appetite means kitty is in a good mood. But if kitty’s appetite is too healthy, it could be a sign she’s bored, depressed, or lonely, says Dr. Franklin McMillan, director of well-being studies at Best Friends Animal Society. “Evidence suggests that, just as in humans, eating can be a psychological mechanism to cope with stress and other sources of unhappiness,” he says.
You also want to contact your vet if your cat starts showing less interest in food. “While not every cat is ravenous, if there is a sudden drop in appetite, there may be something wrong,” says Dr. Rachel Barrack of New York City’s Animal Acupuncture.
