|We just went away for a week. I got my husband's sister a plane ticket to come here. She has grand kids here so that works well. Then, I have my neighbor's adult daughter who lives right next door to come in. I do have a daughter but she lives an hour away and is very busy.
I do pay the neighbor's daughter money to come in. I leave emergency numbers- the vet's number, an all night pet hospital's number, my daughter's number, my cell number, and the
poison center's number. I write all instructions down. My cell phone number and email address are given too. I leave enough food for four more days than we are going. I also leave all play toys where the sitter can use them as well as the cats. If I worry before leaving, they go to the vet for a check up. It helps with peace of mind. Then, on my bed when I leave, I leave some of my clothes, not many that have my smell on them. It helps them, believe it. I do leave extra litter for the sitter. If you don't have a sitter now, check Angie's list or a recommendation from a friend. Have them sit for a practice run.....Then, enjoy your trip knowing that you covered all bases.....We had a wonderful time.....and cats did well even in the heat wave. I left instructions about air conditioning too. Since the cat sitter in next door, she turned it on for the hot hours.
With a medical cat, I hire someone who can give the meds. ....
