Two of the qualities that make cats wonderful pets are their generally independent nature and ease of care. These traits can also make it easy for your cats to stay at home while you and your family go on a vacation trip, because you do not need to worry about walking them, letting them in and outside, or needing excessive attention otherwise.
However, whether you are relying on a professional pet-sitter, family member or a good friend to take care of your cats while you are away, there are a few things you should remember before you go. Taking these precautions and preparatory steps will make sure you can relax while on your trip and not have to worry about those four-pawed friends left at home. Following these recommendations will also ensure that your cats will remain safe, healthy and easy to tend to for your chosen caregiver.
