So I have to admit that I am getting a little bit nervous. I am leaving my cat children at home for a week for the first time ever. I am leaving next Thursday to go on a wonderful trip to Kauai, Hawaii! I am so excited for the trip, but cant help worrying about my cats.
I have hired my brothers girlfriend as a cat sitter, and I have also enlisted a back up, just in case brothers girlfriend cant get to the house one day. I have written a long list on how to do everything, and she is coming over Sunday so I can go over feeding the animals and playing. She is even staying here, so the cats will have constant company. I have done everything possible to prepare myself.
My biggest fears are that something will happen while I am gone. What if one escapes? What if one gets sick? What if, what if, what if. Also, Leo is quite attached to me. He gets very anxious and upset when he sees me getting ready to leave. Of course he is fine once I leave because he has Dutch, but he really has an attachment to me. He sleeps with me every night and cuddles with me all the time. Is he going to become less attached and not love me as much when I get home?
Does anyone have any tips for me? How have your experiences been when leaving your cats for vacation?
And some pictures, just because :)
