We are going away for the weekend to visit family. The cat hates the car. The last time we went we took him and he literally cried the whole 6 hour journey. It was awful. I don't know our neighbours well as we only recently moved in, so I can't ask them to cat-sit.
So do you think he will be ok for 2 nights away if we leave him plenty of food and water or is it better to find a cat hotel (expensive) or drug him up for the journey (poor thing)?
I've looked after my friends cats for a few days at a time and they were fine! I popped in morning and evening to feed and water, a few cuddles etc. took no time at all and they were fine. Much better and less stressful for them and none of the peeing all over the place u get after cattery stay and the toilet confusion.
Just be prepared for them to ignore u for a few hours after
