I'm going

Well, I decided to go...Sammy is doing really good (in fact he seems like his old self) and I know my MIL will take care of him as if he is her own. He likes it there because they spoil him. I will take the crate in case they need it but I am sure things will be fine. They only have 2 stairs on their deck so he won't have any to go up and down. She also uses the same vet so if something happens she knows where to go and I can be home soon in 3 hrs.

We really just need to get away and since we will never be able to afford it any other way... Unfortunately we can't take him with us and I do think that would be worse because he would go nuts in a new place. We should have fun with my nephews. I will be calling lots to check on Sammy. My mom is going to take Katie Jo and the cat and birds will have the house to themselves. I have never left my cat alone but the last time we took her to MIL and she was horrible. She did not eat or drink for days and tore up FIL arm when he tried to get her out from under the bed. My MIL has 5 cats so that does not make Mia happy. She is a people cat so I am sure she will be sad but she will be fine for 2 days.

This is the one thing that sucks about being an animal lover and owner...whenever you leave you have to find places for them. When you have 1 it isn't bad but when you have 5 it is a little more difficult.

Anyway, I am looking forward to it, even if it is camping. I hope everyone has a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend and I will talk to everyone on Sunday or Monday...Time to pack.

We have left our cats for 4 days before...with 2 large stainless steel bowls-1 for food the other for water...2 large litter boxes, their toy box, and favourite fluffy pillow!

They were fine.

Mind you they didn't really eat much...but that's because our cats eat their meals with us...when we eat they eat!

So when we leave we throw their schedule right out the window. Poor guys!

Maybe we should get our neighbors to come over to eat with them when we're away. ha! Then they should eat too...hmm...

Have a great trip! And I'm glad you have your MIL to help out.

Have fun on your camping trip. Yes, your cat will likely be happier at home. She may not "speak" to you for a while after you return (mine usually make it about 10 minutes before they can't stand staying away)but taking her somewhere else is I think harder on cats than dogs. I know what you mean though. I get so nervous when I'm leaving my cats it's just crazy.

I hope you have a lovely labor day weekend :) I hope the doggies will be okay and that they don't need to visit the vet. Have a great time!

Enjoy it.

I agree, totally sucks trying to find someone to take care of them.

Hope everything goes well.
