Cats are sensitive to change; if you have moved to a new home for your cat, that is a drastic change; even if you changed their bed or replaced the litter box, that will cause tremendous stress to your cat!
Boredom clinginess will manifest in your cat being near you, trying to play with you, provoke you, or touch you somehow. This could be the reason, especially if you’ve left your cat home alone for an extended period.
Stress, trauma, being weaned too early, or being orphaned and abandoned, are all factors that can lead to a cat’s separation anxiety and clinginess, having behavioral signs that are reactive and protective.
Leaving your cat without enough toys to stimulate their mental needs leaves them no choice, and they need toys to express their hunting nature, which is an essential role in their life if you don’t know.
