For those of you that have pets, do they feel comfortable with less or lots of people around?

My cat is a great hunter, but, when it comes to too many people in our home she goes to her special place and hides. There are times I thought she ran around and went searching for her and then when I knew about her special places I checked and she was not there. She goes deep under cover. It is very hard for too much noise for her.

@Hannihar We only have Hercules now but he is very quiet and likes to be near us if he can. We live on 18 acre but we don't farm it. We have lots of wild kangaroos which come and go but no other animals. I was brought up on a farm and had lots of pets when I was young.
@louievill I remember when I had my dog she was very protective of her territory and very friendly. Our landlord at the time was selling the apartment so a blind guy came with his guide dog and my dog would not let her in but when we were out walking and saw a a blind dog my dog wanted to play with her. I explained to her that the dog cannot play because she is working.

Many cats are only comfortable with the people they live with. My husband and I are going on a little vacation tomorrow. The lady who lives with us will care for our three cats and two dogs and the house while we are gone. The cats and dogs know her but I am pretty sure the cats will hide a lot while my husband and I are gone. My big black cat especially loves on me but even after months of living with the lady, hisses a scared warning at her when he sees her.

@Hannihar My room mate is not afraid of our Sonny James- black cat- she just worries that he will not do well if he is under my bed the whole time I am gone. Its supposed to be hot but we have air conditioning. One of our other cats is a Siamese and yes, at times a Siamese can be weird. Our Siamese likes to touch his people and be with them so I am unsure what he will do! He mostly ignores room mate.
@sallypup When I was getting my haircut from someone here in Israel. Her family had a siamese and that was when I had my cat and the cat looked right through me like it was looking into my soul and then it came around me and wanted me to pet it. Animals do know who cares for them and does not. What your roommate can do is put food and water and the cat's literbox close to the bed and the cat will go out and eat. I know from when I first got my Sophie I forgot what to do and a friend told me and it worked and I talked to her and eventually she came out. Maybe they will become friends.
