By all means, take them with you if you can! I'm sure if we had a vote here, most folks would say the cats adapt very quickly to travel, especially the inside only ones. I had a cat that would walk on a leash, and that was also great fun around the campgrounds. But, if you have that cat that will dart for the door every time he gets half a chance and then runs, leave that guy at home. You both will be happier.

Gonna reveal what I have kept as my 'secret identity' on the forum .... I am a veterinarian


PLEASE .... someone needs to stop in at least once daily to verify no animal in crisis (I hire my neighborhood kids for twice daily visits ... the parents are very happy cause they don't need to get another animal, the kids learn responsibility & they love the $$$)


You would not believe the medical disasters I have had to address with families returning home to things you could never even imagine would happen ... and many of those issues cost way more than a couple bucks for your neighbor kid

Our cat, Phoxielou, has been with us on our ALCAN trip, and all over last fall and winter. She is a great traveler and never causes any problem. She is a great companion for us.

Three years ago, we went on a 10 day trip to NJ. Left the dogs with my daughter, but the cat didn't like other cats or kennels. We arranged for someone to check on him every 3-4 days, but apparently, there was a communications problem and we arrived home just hours before he died from dehydration. I've never felt more guilty, and the girl who was supposed to check on him was devastated. Her father forgot to tell her, so she never came to the house.
Now, we are down to one dog. My daughter has moved out of state, so Willie comes with us, or he is boarded with our vet.

Your story is the reason I started this posting! How tragic. We take for granted that everything is cared for when we leave, and trusts are made, but the most obvious things like communications are forgotten. We pray for you.
