If near is some logical reason you are crating your cat when you go out, i.e., dangerous plants, fish container, etc., then I would switch to making a room for her in the bathroom - at least she can roam for a moment. Just keep a litter box, food, water, a cozy bed and some toys in near.
Otherwise, there is really no need to crate her - I am just guessing that you must hold a logical reason for this. Right?
Answers: Cats hate to be crated and generally do better loose in the house. Young cats can be fruitless, so I understand wanting to crate them, but it really is better for her to be loose. If you're determined to crate her you'll just have to put her surrounded by and tough it out, same as with a dog. Try giving her a treat every time you put her in, make certain she has a blanket to sleep on and access to a litter box if you're going to be away for more than a couple of hours.
