What's the ideal place for my cats...I am going 5 days at Christmas
cindigal posted:
OK...hold on your hats cause this may take a while to explain. I have 2 male cats...Boo (all black) and Tiger (orange tabby). They are about 8 months now and I never left them except once except one time when I went to my sisters whos lives in Chgo. I had plans already for Christmas and I got the kitties from my son who initially adopted them for my granddaughter who turned out allergic to them. He then called me and asked me if I could take them. At first I wasnt going to take them because of I heard these apartments are not supposed to have pets (thats another story). So I gave in because I love pets and he brought them over and of course I fell in love with them. My mom and sister from Florida flew in and we all went to my other sisters in Chgo for Christmas. I had to leave the kittens at home but my son came once a day to feed them and clean the litter. I felt so bad leaving them at home.

So this upcoming Christmas my mom and sister in Florida want me to visit with them for about 5 days. By the way, the lady downstairs told me when I came home that she heard the cats crying every night 5 nights and running all the time. So, I decided this time to bring them somewhere....but where.??. I only brought them to the time, because I dont drive at all, my son drove me and the cats to the vet he knows. I dont know anything "boarding" at Vet. I don't have any friends to ask....seriously... I keep to myself. The thought of my cats confine to any "cages" it seems so cruel. My son certainly cant take the cats because of my granddaughter's allergies. I dont know ANY one around me to trust to come to my house to watch them. I am asking some kind of advise of where I can do with my cats when I go on vacation as far as the best place that they can have free time and play with other cats, and they wont be restricted. Thank you.
