Tell me not to be precious!

Just looked at another cattery as the girls usual one was full. They now have room bit feel I can't cancel the other one. I'm being really precious as the other one is fine. And has good reviews. It's spotlessly clean it's just not as plush. Tell me not to be ridiculous and that they'll be fine. (New one will be more convenient)

How long is it for? I ask as if it's a short stay you could use the new one as a trial run in case the usual one is full again in future. If it's a fortnight go with your usual one.

Only 3 nights. So not long. I just like to leave the girls with people who know and genuinely love them.

They will be fine! I wouldn't cancel in case you need to use the new one again. A good idea to get them used to a new place just in case. Do they go in together or separately?

In that case go with the new cattery. Have you told them all about the girls?

They go in together. I didn't tell him about their history. We didn't really talk about the cats. I showed him pictures and made sure Snorg would be groomer and have her eyes cleaned if needed. It's a good place, it's just the usual one is outstanding!

I know I'm being ridiculous, but the girls are so precious! My sister was checking out wedding venues today, I was checking out a cattery. Story of my life! confusedgrin

Well I am far too soft and a worrier for my pets...I would go with the one I knew and loved! Sorry! I am sure the other one will be fine too, but the precious babies...!

I've booked them into their usual place. I just couldn't take them elsewhere. The staff were gutted they weren't coming, so I've made their day that they are. And as they pointed out; it's taken along time to get Snorg confident and used to them.
I feel so much better about it.

As long as it has the Cheddar seal of approval!

The Snorg seal of approval is more important. Cheddar is bomb proof. Snorg isn't.

Tbh I would have done the same. Snorg had such a bad life before being rescued she needs tlc now.

Exactly. She will get loads of it at her usual
Place. The girl who really loves them was gutted when her friend said that I was going to book them in and then didn't.

You posted on my thread over Christmas when I had to leave mine in the cattery for the first time. They were fine!

I'm sure that as long as they are fed and watered they will be OK for 3 days. But I totally understand the feeling!! smile

I know they will be fine. And if the usual
Place was full, I'd happily put them in the other place. The usual place just threw me a bit by squeezing them in after saying they were full. I'm
Being silly but Magics background makes me very over protective of her!

Didn’t the usual cattery give Snorg and Cheddar Christmas presents? It’s good they will both receive the level of service to which they have become accustomed.

Yes they did!
