We all look forward to our weekends when we have the opportunity to catch up on chores or, even better, take a weekend break away.
With your trip on the horizon, you know your furry friend will miss you, so it's time to prepare your kitty to cope while you are away, and be as happy and comfortable as possible.
8 tips to help your kitty cope with weekend breaks
We often think of cats as independent when they strut around as if they rule the house ‚ - but don't be fooled, they also know that you are there for them and that you make sure all their needs are met.
So if you're planning a weekend break, these tips will help your kitty cope, and make sure they have all the right resources while you are away:
1. Create a consistent environment
2. Give your kitty a health check
3. Preparing to go away
4. Make sure your cat will be safe, and all their resources are accessible.
5. Consider a cat sitter
6. Consider a cattery
7. Should I just bring my kitty with me?
8. How long can I leave my cat alone?
This very much depends on the age of your cat. A newly adopted kitten should never be left alone for long, but when they are adult cats and have become more independent, you can leave them alone for 24-48 hours without supervision.
A short weekend break should not impact your cat's routine too much, as long as they have everything they need‚ and you'll soon be home and pick up where you left off!
