Dear Fancy,

We adopted our two-year old cat, Cleo, in May. She's acclimated wonderfully and we all dote on her. She's the new queen of the house. Soon the kids will be back in school and I'll be returning to work as a teacher. What can we do to help Cleo cope with our absence for several hours each day?

Dear Loyal Subject,

There are lots of ways you can keep Cleo occupied, content, and out of trouble when there aren't any humans around over whom she can preside.

The three basic rules are: spend some quality time with her before you leave for the day, enrich her environment (make it comfy for sleeping and fun and interesting for awake periods), and give her the proper worship when you return home. In fact, here's a whole article about that: HOW TO KEEP YOUR CAT ENTERTAINED WHEN NO ONE BUT KITTY IS HOME
