This is a little bit harder subject to talk about because cats are not like dogs, are not very interactive generally. They, they like to be their own, they like to, to be with their, their own and they like to sit around and just lounge and be relaxed. And, and generally when the cat is depressed it's, it's because of, something's going on with them, a sickness or some, some problem. Generally, a cat if it's depressed won't play with you. They won't get mad, they won't, as you stimulate them, they won't, 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. So, if something made this cat depressed, a cat would start urinating in abnormal places; would possibly start defecating in places that they've never done before. If there is something going on with your cat, you're generally going to see behavior changes. And that's, those are a few of the things that we have you look for if you think your cat is depressed.
