I'm speechless. Why didn't your neighbor mention the alarm when you called, and how could anyone with kids and pets be so irresponsible? My niece has been working as a petsitter (dogs, cats, horses) for a number of years, to finance her way through college. She checks on the animals at least twice a day, and in some cases sleeps over. We've left JC twice, and paid a friend's daughter to come and feed him, clean the litterbox, and stay with him for an hour or so every day. In addition, my mother-in-law came over every morning and evening to check on him and give him attention. I simply can't believe somebody would leave the cats for six days without checking on them! I probably would never speak to the woman again.
