Here is a post for Throwback Thursday from almost six years ago. We were going on a week-long cruise plus an extra day to get to Port Canaveral and visit my wife’s dad. That was a long time to be away from our cats.
We took out the suitcases for our upcoming vacation and, as expected, all the cats had to lie on top of them. It happens every time. I think they know what is coming and they want to make sure we know that they don’t want to be left home again.
I’m staging a sleep in until you agree to take us with you.
I hate leaving them alone for so long. We do have someone who will come in twice a day but that won’t be the same for them. Honestly, I don’t worry about the diminished attention they will get. They have each other and they can survive a week with little human attention.
What I do worry about is the unpredictable. What if the cat-sitter accidentally lets a cat out? Worse, what if something bad happens to her? What if a burglar invades our…

that’s sure the hardest part… I ruined my holiday and my dad brought me home after one day…gosh I’m crazy LOL
Maybe, but crazy isn’t always a bad thing.
even if you had boarded the crew, you would still have had worries about what was going on there at the “cat spa” .
it’s what “parents’ do……worry….and we will continue to do so
I have days when I’m at work when all the what if’s set in so you’re not alone in this 🙂
hope everyone’s happy, safe and healthy; in this day and age, just wondering WHERE… and IF …. you can go on vacation is the question !!!
We had to cancel our vacation to Nova Scotia in September. Now we are just going to Saint Augustine for a few days.
We don’t even use our front door anymore. I have two escape artists–one has gotten out twice and come flying back inside. We come and go through the garage and make sure everything is locked up before we open the kitchen door. That is my greatest fear–they they will run out and not come back. I hear your fear!
The garage is in great buffer zone. We built a screened in porch on our last home which was also a good buffer zone. Unfortunately we can’t do anything like that here.
Dad has only gone of short day long vacations since I came here to live. He says he feels better that way and so do we
I like little mini vacations too. They are less stressful when you have pets at home.
Our peeps won’t go on vacation and leave us, mostly because I have to have 4 meds twice a day. They do small day trips, or at least they used to until the Covid thing.
A few small trips are sometimes better than one big trip.
Looks like they wanted to go too. 😉
They think they want to go but they would have changed their mind once in the car.
We gave up going anywhere years ago because I can’t stand to be without the kitties even if my mom will stay with them.
I totally understand.
It’s hard to travel if a pet can’t go.
It sure is.
