You say he is working overseas and alone - so its hardly surprising that his own loneliness is top of his agenda. While he knows you CAN play with your cat ( and cats can be very understanding about such situations I once told my old friend Carl Rogers that I thought all cats and most dogs had read his books about Unconditional Positive Regard ) he can't even do that.
And he may feel bad about not being able, at a distance, to do anything about your loneliness. People tend to feel bad about situations where they can't think of how to be helpful, and maybe especially men, tend to avoid or ignore them.
And as he is not with you, he may not be easily aware of whatever else may be bothering you.
How much longer is he due to be overseas ? Long-distance relationships are nver easy except at the most trivial level.
