In August I posted a blog that related our experiences pet sitting for friends who had just rescued a kitten. They were about to leave on a vacation that had been in the workings for a year. They already had an older cat who was used to being alone whenever they were away. A family member stopped in to check on him and refresh his water and food. But I was wary of leaving a kitten for an extended period, even though she had the company of her older brother. So I volunteered to drive the thirty-five minutes to spend time with their felines on the days when the family member wasn't able to stop by. My husband and I looked at it as a stay-cation and we really enjoyed spending time away from home in the company of some adorable felines. We stopped on the way to pick up lunch and stopped on the way home for a hand-dipped ice cream cone.
And to think I learned this all from two felines! Well, actually two...plus our five inside...and our two outside cats.
