Why leaving your cat at home is a better solution than a cattery

Leave them home you can even hire someone for half the cost to feed the cats their morning and afternoon meals clean litter box and play with them. I do this for my aunt once or twice a year. It’s a vacation for me and she leaves money for food and some for myself in case I need it.

Going away on holiday can leave many cat owners with a dilemma. Should they take their cat to a cattery or leave them at home, and have someone pop in once a day to feed them? Neither solution is great news for your cat. Most cats hate catteries. Unless they have been used to going from a very young age, putting your cat in a cattery can cause them a great deal of stress.

Cats are territorial animals and also fairly solitary. Putting them in an unfamiliar environment, perhaps with other cats around them, can make them very unhappy and lead to them stopping eating.

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

Zoe has been making art with our shed whiskers, which she has been collecting over the years. She put them on origami paper and stuck them in some slime that she made.

But she doesn’t know that we actually want to keep them so that we can put them under our pillow for the whisker fairy to collect them and reward us with a treat.

Here is a picture of the whisker fairy:

We think it is a miracle that those tiny little wings of hers have managed to hold her up for so long considering that she is quite heavy for her size. Her main body is made out of  slime so that when she finds a whisker she sticks it into her body. We think that is pretty cool.

Every time Zoe finds a whisker on the floor she says “Aha! I got one!”
