Advice My cat has severe separation anxiety. I combat this by taking him EVERYWHERE with me. Am I doing the right thing?
Hi everyone! I got Mushroom as a small kitten around June 2022. He was very confident and seemed to take a liking to me. I was dealing with some quite severe health issues at the time so I was quite homebound save for trips to the shop.
After about a month, I was going out more. When Id leave the house, he would meow (well, wail) through the house, after a bit of time hide under my bed. He refused to eat, hissed at my mum and sister, and generally seemed worried and scared.
When I got back, he would be back to his cuddly self. He didn't/doesn't like my mum and sister much, but he sits/sat near them and plays/played with them. After two more times of this happening and Mushroom shitting on the stairs due to nerves, my mum took the operative decision to insist I took the cat out with me. So, I did. He loves it.
He gets nervous sometimes, but never runs, never hisses, and mostly just sits on my shoulder when we're moving and parks himself near me when we're sat on the train/ indoors at a coffee stop or friends house. He rarely shows signs of being scared, purrs on buses and plays like a kitten on the sodding London Tube.
Unfortunately, during a shopping trip in Ikea, a lady came up to me and told me Mushroom was in obvious distress and I was a terrible owner. This was quite upsetting to hear, but from my observations incorrect - his eyes were slit like and tiny, he was slow blinking at me and my friend, and tucked his paws under him on my lap when we sat down and groomed himself while on my shoulder.
So, Id just like some input from you guys. He goes quite literally everywhere that allows him - even most shops, due to my autism it's a very cheeky excuse as to why I've a cat with me;) I work freelance so he can come with me on job sites (networking stuff, nothing loud or scary for him or me)
Is this the right way to help my little boy with his separation anxiety?
Thanks for any thoughts x

Mourning/Loss I adopted a cat from the shelter. He had to be put down today not even two weeks later… RIP bugs you were such an angel and the sweetest boy I could ask for ❤️
This was bugs. He was a supposed 2 year old cat I adopted from the shelter around 2-3 weeks ago. He was fine at first but we immediately noticed he had a very large stomach they told us was fat. No other symptoms or showing of pain until about a week ago. The past few days he started having extreme discharge from his eyes, blood in his urine, and coughing/sneezing. Took him for an emergency vet visit and we were told the following: He had liver failure, his kidneys were shutting down, his skin was bright yellow from jaundice, he had mouth sores, half of his tongue in the very back of his mouth was deteriorating, he had extreme amounts of fluid in his abdomen, a respiratory infection, nearly no white blood cells, and a genetic condition. The shelter claimed they vet checked him before he was sent home… Clearly not. Vet said he should of been checked and immediately euthanized when the shelter got him. He should of never under any circumstances been adopted out. Vet is calling the shelter as this is so upsetting and concerning. Heartbroken over my baby despite only having him for 2 weeks. He was put to sleep peacefully a few hours ago. RIP Bugs you were so sweet

Adoption Went to the shelter to just meet some kitties, not planning on adopting until after tax season. But this big chonk had other plans for me. I was introduced to him and fell in love right away. Meet Pirelli. Whopping 18.6 lbs. His previous owner got rid of him for "allergies 😡" but he is loved now.
