What Do With a Ragdoll Cat When You Go on Vacation?

Bara wrote asking, “Please can you post the following on the FB page, I am looking for advice – thanks.

Hi, my rag doll is 18 months old and I will be taking the kids on holiday for two months over the summer. We will be staying the entire time at my mums house (apart from one week when we will be away). I would like your advice in choosing what to do with him.

Choice 1: He stay at home – this is his home and he will be in a familiar environment. My husband will be around for most of that two months and my husbands work hours are reasonable, so our cat will have company from 6pm every evening and all weekend. During the one week that my husband joins us on holiday my neighbour will come in and do all that is necessary (my neighbour has done this before) eg change litter, feed, play etc. Myself and the kids will not be there for two months.

Choice 2: He comes with me to my mums house – He has done this once before when he was much younger. My mum has the space for him but the house is very hectic. There are always lots of visitors and cousins around. However he will be with me and the kids for two months.

Please can you give me your views on which one would be the best option for him.

Thanks so much,”

  1. WOW! Such great questions, Jenny! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    Regarding question/issue number one about the Ragdoll kitteh and vacation: I think if the Ragdoll kitty is more attached to the mom and kids than the dad AND is familiar with her mom's environment then that is the answer right there. Otherwise, it's some alone time with dad and the neighbor. ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    Regarding the request for help naming that adorable kitten: The name Kirby just flew into my head when I saw that precious choochie schmoochie face! I don't even need to know the sex of the kitten as I think Kirby works well for a girl or a boy! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    And, lastly, the raw food issue: I am totally clueless but very impressed that reader is doing that for her kitty! It seems like a lot of work and quite messy! But more power to giving her kitty what it's body was truly made for! I truly admire that! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    Just my two cents worth! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    Big hugs & lots of love!

    Patti & Miss Pink Sugarbelle ๐Ÿ™‚ <3
