Your options depend on your cat’s personality and the time you will be away. You can:
1. Leave your cat alone at home. This will probably be OK for a night or two, as long as your cat has a secure and safe environment. The main problem is that cats that miss you don’t always behave as you expect, and risk doing things that can damage your home or even damage themselves.
2. Have a check-in cat sitter. This reduces the home-alone risk, as long as your cat doesn’t do anything that requires emergency care. It also increases the risk of a cat escaping every time the door is opened.
3. Hire a full-time cat sitter to look after your home and your cats. This is a good choice as long as you have a reliable sitter, and a secure space that your cat can’t escape from.
4. Board your cat at a regular kennel. Of course being hemmed into a small cage, close to the smells and noises of dogs, can make a kennel stay very stressful. Many kennels don’t have overnight staff.
5. Please feel free to do your research, check out the possible options ahead of time, and ask all the questions you want. The Kaatza Cat Hotel is inside a private residence, boards only a few cats, and has roomy suites. Each cat gets time out in the playroom, and snuggles if required! If you decide you’d like to book your cat into the Kaatza Cat Hotel I look forward to welcoming you. I’m available by email or phone during your cat’s entire stay.
