Hello all! As you can see from my profile pic, I have two cats. Abby is the one who is...festively plump. Our new baby is Beau. Both are rescues. I also have a dog named Gibbs.
Yes, a cat sitter, like a baby sitter where they have access to your home/flat and make a check on the food, and the litter tray. Yes my cat is also petrified from leaving the flat, where on occasion i take Nariahn out in the garden below to play in the bushes why I lie in the sun. Gosh well its best to let the cat out over a weekend when their are no garden services and other possible noises that could traumatize the cat.
One who will sit at your place? The only time Squeaky was ever out of the apartment was to get spayed, so I think she'll find leaving the apartment for any reason terrifying. She refuses to go out of the apartment into the hall, even in my arms. I carried her into the hall once and she scratched and bit to get back into the apartment.
BTW, the day I took her out to be spayed it was about 8:30 in the morning and there was a crew of three or four guys with those loud leaf blowers who were blowing right around my car. I can't imagine how extra-terrified she was. What bad luck.
I have found a cat sitter...
Oh, and Squeaky can be mean when disappointed as it is!
Unseen, Squeaky will be much happier in the surroundings she knows than she would if you left her in a cattery, so provided she has clean water and sufficient food and a clean litter tray, she will sleep most of the time you are away. If your sister is going to keep an eye on her then she can turn on the aircon if it becomes too hot. Put two bowls of water down - I have a big 5 gallon water dispenser for the animals - if you don't already have one, they are cheap and practical (Walmart) and last a long time.
I usually leave a radio or the TV on for the cats when I'm away all day. But I'm chuckling at the discovery you may be about to make, which is that you will probably be punished with sulks, aloofness and possibly scratches when you get back. Cats very often punish their owners for 'abandonment' and their sulks can last two or three days.
I feel the same with my cat , Nariahn which I have grown attatched to, since in August I would be going down south to Rendlesham Forest for four days, but live in a flat , so I would need to put lots of food down and lots of water, so the cat would be fine when I am away, but I was wondering can you let animals stay over away on holiday in the care of the SPCA ?
My beautiful little kitty, Squeaky:
I think when I leave Squeaky behind for 10 days while visiting my daughter out of state later this month, it may be more traumatic for me than my cat, but I can't help being a little concerned about her suddenly not getting the affection she's used to.
She climbs onto my bed every morning around 4:30 or 5 and snuggles. She frequently begs for attention. Loves to be picked up and held and walked around the apartment while I let her touch door jambs and rub her nose and cheeks on them,.
And of course I play with her several times a day, too.
I just wonder if she'll miss that a lot. Oh well, my sister will drop by every other day or so, so she won't be without human contact.
Also, I was wondering whether to leave the A/C running while I was gone, but after looking up the facts about cats and heat, I discover they are far more tolerant of heat than are dogs. Of course, that makes sense because they are after all descended from desert cats. Leaving my balcony door open should be enough, and if it gets into the high-80's indoors, as long as she has water, she should be okay in that regard.
Sorry if I seem overly concerned. This is the first time I've left her for more than half a day.
I know what you mean by squeaks , cute :-)
