Is someone missing out doing this?

Hypothetical person has cats with no one other than a neighbour to pop in twice a day to feed them, hence said person only goes on city breaks abroad or in this country for maximum of four days but goes on 3-4 of these a year?

Missing out on what ?

Not missing out. Making different choices.

Missing out on what ?

One or two week holidays that another person has said is far superior

Oh OK, then no if the person is happy with shorter breaks, and doesn't want to leave their cats for longer/ put them in a cattery, then it is no one else's business. The kind of holiday the hypothetical cat lady enjoys is entirely her choice.

Well the person going on line holidays isn't enjoying year round cat company so, you pays your money you takes your pick. 🤷
It's more than me. Not had a holiday at all in about 8 years.

Long holidays

Nope. Not missing out at all. You have a cat - nothing more wonderful than having a cat 🥰

Why does is matter how someone holidays? Surely it's whatever you enjoy. However, should you want to take a longer break, we use a pet sitter who we pay to come in twice a day to feed ours. We use neighbours for a night or 2 but I don't like to put on them for longer trips. But if you're happy with city breaks then what does it matter.

For me, the pleasure i get from sharing my house with animals far exceeds the pleasure I'd get from foreign travel. I'm more than happy to have uk breaks.

My understanding of human life is there is a wide variety of priorities and choices?

This is no such thing as 'missing out' if a person is doing as they want.
