    I have one of those notices on my door in case of fire, telling fire peeps that I have kit. Also added his name as he answers to it most of the time. In any case would not leave bldg without Dorry. But G-d forbid I’m not at home (don’t want to think about this possibility).

    Those fire safety tips are great JK! The other things that I do (like I said hope such a dire situation never arrives, but used to be that our bldg fire alarm would go off for no reason at all, we had to evac nonetheless and I learned the hard way). Instant I hear alarm I get Dorry out of bdrm, and into main area, ie before he has time to hide as not fun trying to extract frightened kit from under bed. I also keep his carrier within super easy access as used to keep it in top of cupboard as hardly ever used it, but not now and better safe than not.

    Pet Separation Anxiety
    anxious kit

    http://dogtime.com/treating-your-pets-separation-anxiety.html

    Check with your vet. The first step is to discuss the situation with your veterinarian and have your pet undergo a complete physical examination. It is important to rule out any underlying physical problems that may be causing this behavior.

    Short term fixes:
    ?Avoid leaving your pet home alone. Make use of pet daycare, a boarding facility or a veterinary clinic so your pet isn’t left home alone to panic.
    ?Leave your pet with a friend, family member, or neighbor when you’re away

    What won’t help. Remember that the destruction of your home that often occurs with separation anxiety isn’t your pet’s way of seeking revenge for being left alone; it’s part of a panicked response. Therefore punishment isn’t effective for treating separation anxiety and can even make the situation worse.
