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
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)?
