The length of time that a cat can stay home unattended depends on several factors such as their age, health, and behavior. In general, healthy adult cats can be left alone for 24-48 hours as long as they have access to food, water, and a clean litter box. However, it is recommended that cats are checked on and interacted with at least once a day to ensure their well-being.
Kittens, elderly cats, and cats with special needs may require more frequent attention and care. It's important to assess your cat's individual needs and make sure they are comfortable and safe while you are away. If you are going to be away for an extended period of time, it's a good idea to arrange for a trusted friend, family member, or pet sitter to check on your cat and provide care as needed.
