I’m going away for 10 days. Is it better to hire a cat sitter or board my cat at a cat hotel? — 4 Comments

  1. On my last trip to California back in 2015 I left my ‘Mysterymine’ in the care of my neighbor,I showed him how to give Mystery his insulin shots and when I got back 4 days later 2 days after that I lost my beloved Mysterymine,if I could have afforded the blood panel I would have done it so I could make sure he had actually been given his shots,the vile with the insulin didnt look like it had been used,losing him crushed me for a long time,I will never go on holiday or get on an airbus to visit family again,I cannot trust anyone but myself to care for my cats.

  2. I totally agree with your feelings Michael, and Albert Schepsis’ comment too. Every option is lacking. It just feels like there are no options when thinking about leaving our cats. It literally shows how deeply our emotions are for our animal companions. They are literally our best friends. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸΎπŸ—οΈ

  3. Yeah, my preference has been to never go away, and I haven’t for about 23 years since I’ve had cats. Not one day. I don’t really trust anyone enough to do it. Not a friend, not some girl, certainly not a kennel (jail) and I have no family, though my brother wouldn’t do it for anything. Approximately 8,395 days without a day off from my cats and I don’t regret a minute of it.

    • You’re just like me then! God damn it’s hard being a cat guardian. I’ll have to do an article based on your comment! I can see the title now.
