I had to have emergency surgery last year.
My cat and rabbit were home alone for almost a full week..
Not saying this was a positive experience for them or myself, but they made due,..I always make sure they have tons of food, and water..Alil too obsessive about it..The litterbox was a mess of course, but she was a soldier..
No one knew I was in the hospital to even come over..
It made me realize i dont need to be so obsessive though, by cleaning the cages, and litter every 12 hours..
I thought for sure I was gonna come home to dead animals, I had a friend who drove me home walk in first,...And she was right there like nothing ever happened..
