I just got 2 kittens last Sunday. We've already been to the vet a couple times and other than a little diarrhea which they are on medication for, they are doing very well! My question is, how much time should I spend with them? I am not working right now but seem to have a lot of obligations that keep me away from the house. Yesterday for example I was gone for 5 hours then home for 3 then gone again for 3. During the evening when I was gone for the 3 hours my husband was here with the kittens. When I am home, I spend all my time with them. Right now due to the diarrhea issue they are enclosed in about a 7x7 foot space when I am here and when I am not with all their needs- food, litter box, places to sleep, play room, toys, etc. Yesterday was actually excessive time for me to be gone and the first time I left them. I am just interested in how much time is ok to leave them for. Right now, the entire time I am gone, I am feeling guilty about it. Any suggestions to reprimand or ease this new owners guilt?
