It's not for nothing that they say that a dog needs only a master, andcat - home. Although this opinion can be considered correct only partially. For example, it is because of the permanence of the house that the cat is oriented in space even in total darkness. Moving furniture temporarily deprives her of a sense of confidence and comfort, she will need at least a day to master the changes. Only in the usual territory, where everything has long been studied and familiar to the smallest detail, she will feel confident and again become a real, full-fledged mistress.
