I've often wondered if our cats miss us when we leave the house. Well, I don't think I'm ever leaving home again after seeing this! 

And if you know anyone who doesn't think cats miss us when we leave, here's your proof!

This black and white kitty is called Kodi, his human dad explains: 

“I knew Kodi had some separation anxiety when he was growing up, even though Shorty cat is always around, but I figured, since he’s almost 5 (36 in human years!) that he had grown out of it. Yeah, not so much."

"Haven’t tried filming him like this in years but this morning I thought I’d just turn on the camera and see. This lil’ dude still misses me like crazy the second I walk out the door.”

As soon as his human leaves the house he immediately goes for his “security blanket,” which is a little green mouse. 

He then paces up and down the hallway with it in his mouth, all the while crying out for his human.

Poor little guy, I really feel for him.

Awwww, poor Kodi, he really does seem upset at the prospect of being 'home alone.'

And for the record, my kitties got awfully worried when they heard him crying, let us know how your kitties react.
