I am the catsitter for my two grandkitties while my daughter and son-in-law vacation in Ireland. Ireland sounds pretty good to me right now! Maybe I could join them and leave my husband here to manage. And there's a lot to manange.
Their cats are seniors and one of them, Simone, was rescued from a
My Marlowe and Simone are both
And then there's my husband, who insists no cat will be on the kitchen counters. (Really? Does he KNOW what a challenge that is with 4 cats???) And of course Rosie, the dog, will eat anything that halfway smells like food, so it takes plenty of my time to make sure all the kitties get what they need to eat before she scarfs it up. So far, I have done okay except for Allergic Cat. It's hard to give her medicine when I CAN'T FIND HER!
But I must say, it is a joy to be surrounded by cats and to hear Marlowe growl and hiss--this, the cat who NEVER makes any noise. (Sorry, little guy. They all know you're a paper tiger.) I will be happy to be off medicine and special diet duty next week but when they go home, I'm sure gonna miss them. Okay, maybe not the one I can never find.
So that's what's going on in my neck of the woods. Ever done any cat-sitting before? If not, after hearing all this, would you risk it?
