- Apr 27, 2004For us, it depends on what the possibility is that one of the cats
could go into crisis while we're away. We won't do any travelling
at this point until Morag has passed away. Because she could have a
crisis (or even die) at anytime, I just can't leave her. I also
wouldn't feel right boarding her at the vet where she would be stuck
in a cage all the time. I want her home in her favorite places as
much as possible given that her life expectancy isn't very good at
I wouldn't think it fair to have friends or a cat sitter take care
of her either because it's within the realm of possibility that they
would have to handle a crisis (or worse). We'd come rushing home at
that point anyway, no matter where we were, so we might as well stay
here. And frankly they wouldn't know what to look out for in terms
of fluid accumulation and I wouldn't want them feeling guilty
because something happened on their watch.
When we had a diabetic cat, we did travel because she was stable.
So as I said, it depends on the situation.
