Tonight is the night

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well tonight is the night that I am leaving camping. I won't be back until Monday afternoon. I have my boyfriend's mom coming on Sat. & Sun. just to make sure she has plenty of food and water and to give her some wet food. She is allergic to cats and doesn't like them so I know she will not be spending anytime playing with her I hope she does ok at home alone, I am sure she will (as we have all ready discussed it) buut I still feel soooooo bad. This is the first time I have left her overnight. She was cuddling with me this morning before I got out of bed and I was talking to her telling her I was going but that I would be back and she just cuddled closer. Poor baby! She is going to hate me.

She won't hate you, even when horrific things are done our fur friends find ways to love us and what you are doing is not horrific. You deseave a vacation too. Too bad she won't be played with, just give her lots of attention b-4 and after, you'll be forgiven right away.

Throw on an old pair of sneakers, and wear them without socks and get them good a sweaty with your scent. Leave them for her right before you leave- it will help her to know you are close. Stick them in a ziplock bag after you sweat them out, and then take them from the bag and lay them on the floor right before you get ready to walk out the door.

Hissy, is that why she loves to rub her face in my shoes so much! I have never been able to figure that out. If I come back from a walk and take my shoes off and take a shower, I come back out and she rolls all over with it!

Well,I just found out his mom can not come check on her afterall. I am frantically trying to find someone but I leave in a few hours! UGH! My vets office said it is safe to leave her, so I guess I will still. But the one thing that me me peace of mind (knowing someone would be checking on her) is now gone.

Oh no that is too bad!! Please make sure you leave tons of dry food and water bowls out! I would even fill up the sink with water too before you leave.

At the last minute, I found someone who will check on her once Saturday and Sunday! YAY Sorry to bother you guys so much with this, I have just been stressed out about it.

Sicy- I also wanted to tell you that I think Zoey and Saki are absolutely georgeous! I think that everytime I see your signature.

Yeah short term I feel fine leaving him. It's the longer term I worry about, I started a post here earlier about a week long trip I am taking that I worry about. but a weekend, he will be restless but i know ok. I would just leave a boatload of food and an extra litter box if you can. And music or TV on or something. They will be fine and better off with a happy, vacationed parent.

I saw your post Marge, I would be an even bigger mess leaving her for longer than a weekend. This was actually 2 weeks ago, I forgot to post that Dori was fine while I was gone. I couldn't wait to get back home to see her. She was extra cuddly when I got back and wouldn't leave my side. The next day everything was back to normal.
