    cattery?

    Friend or relation taking them in (though that is a big responsibility)

    Locked in a room in your house - though one post on here did exactly that and builders disregarded instruction and cat ran outside.

    Personally I would put in a cattery for 3 weeks - they would be safe and you could visit regularly.

    What about confining them to one room with a feliway and using Zyklene it's a destresser that is a milk protien and it's meant to mimic/recreate the soothing calmness that they felt when suckling, it works on my stressy cat just by taking the edge of her jumpyness, it's easy to give as it is a capsule that you open and sprinkle on their food.

    I'm facing a similar situation in the fact that I have to have my house re-rendered and putting in a cattery is just not an option as my cat is so nervous and stressy that the vets called me in early after spaying to bring her home as she was trying to climbing backwards up the kennel walls, so I completely sympathize with you.
