Can you live without your pets for only a week? I personally feel impossible to live without my 3 cats. I will miss them so much. I sometime go out of town with school groups and have to leave my 3 cats at home. Then, while i'm away, It's my mom who will be in charge to take care of them. But i always miss them. I want to tickle their tummies, and pat their head. What about you? Do you feel the same like me?

Yeah, I miss them, but I love to travel too. However, because of them, I don't get to travel a lot, but that's fine too.

I only have one cat, Mildred, but I miss her if I'm gone even a few hours. It's amazing how attached we get to our pets.

@Ayuriny She is a beautiful and wonderful kitty!! Right now her hair is much shorter. She gets a lion hair cut every summer to help with the matting.

Yes. I love pets but they live at my parents' place since pets are not allowed here in my place. They are pitbulls and a bulldog.

Hello there Ayurini Well we have had two cats for about three months now. Two sisters. 14 years old. Cookie and Felix. We want to a bike motorbike rally and left them in the house for two nights. I did miss them of that there is no doubt. They are very friendly cats and we really do enjoy their company and I think that they enjoy our company also. They love being stroked and cuddled and my getting is that they missed us. I was amazed at how they reached when we returned home. They were really pleased to see us. I think that the time we were away and they missed us actually made them look forward to our return. So try look at it that way. You will miss them. They will miss you. But they will also look forward to seeing you when you return.

Absolutely agree with you. I can feel it too that my 3 cats missed me so much when i was away. In your picture, is it Cookie or Felix? It's so cute. Thanks for your sharing.

I have unfortunately spent two weeks away from my animals back years ago. I regretted it, and they missed me terribly. I can't do it again. Not even if someone paid me. Three years ago when I was rushed to the hospital for breathing problems (I'm asthmatic), and it turned out I had pneumonia, I refused to stay in the hospital because I was more worried about my animals than my own health.

Me too. No more leaving them again. No more making them suffer for missing me terribly anymore. Thank you for sharing your experience. So inspiring.

I had to go back to my home country for a month when my mother passed away. I missed my pets, but fortunately, most of my friends that I stayed with had pets. One of my cats missed me so much that she stopped eating for a week. When I came home she slept on top of me for a long time. I think she wanted to make sure I didn't escape! But all is back to normal now.

Wow, look at those cute cats you have there. I think I can live with out them, but I had to tell you that I lost five dogs two months ago and it was the worst thing in my life. We tried to save them but it was too late.

@Ayuriny for a week , it is possible but the arrangement for their care should be made beforehand.
