    Hello everyone,

    I am going away on May 25th for 2 weeks, what is the best option for my kittens? They will be 9months old and they would not have been out the house yet as I think it's best to let them out for the first time when I get back?

    I do have friends and family that would come round to feed them and I don't mind paying any professional cat sitters but which would be best to minimise stress?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't let them out at all, but if you must do wait until you return.

    If you trust your family or friends to properly care for them, noting any health changes, amounts of food eaten, properly clean the litter tray etc.
    Otherwise you can use a cattery or pet sitter, depends on who you have available and who will do the job best.

    My two boys are 9 months too and they have just come back from 10 days in a cattery.

    I was lucky as my vet works closely with the cattery as they have stray cats for the local cat shelter too so was able to recommend them.

    My boys seem to have enjoyed their visit been well looked after and eaten well. They even came home with a toy they had specially enjoyed:) which has been appropriated by my Beardie boy:D

    If you can find a good cattery I'm sure your cats will be fine especially as there are 2 of them for company.
