I am going to be going away on vacation and I'm trying to think of what to do with my kitten while I'm gone. I don't want to just leave her alone and have someone come over once a day to feed her because she will be so lonely - she's used to having me home throughout the evening and she cuddles with me at night when we sleep. I know I need to break our routine because I feel guilty even leaving her one night let alone an entire week or even a weekend. If I were to do a weekend only away I was considering buying one of those automatic food feeders that you program the times throughout the day for food to dispense (up to 5 days) but I'm scared if it malfunctioned kitty would have no food. I'd like to leave her with a family member but they don't want their furniture scratched/ripped so I need to find a solution. Has anyone tried using the kitty caps? Do they really work? I can't imagine trying to get these on your pet not to mention how they would come off since they are actually glued on but I need to think of something. Any suggestions would be appreciated - thank you.
