Very helpful thank you

If I had wanted opinions on our plans I would have
asked for them.

In case you didn't know catteries are expensive and,
more importantly, pretty grim for the animals.


In defence of some really great catteries I object to that statement.Have
you actually *been* to any catteries? My nearest one is a veritable paradise
for cats. Huge chalets and runs, an aviary in the centre to watch, the best
of everything, heated, in the countryside, and an owner who is potty about
cats and spends hours every day playing with her boarders. Music playing in
the block too.If my cats went there, they would feel hard done by having to
come back with me :0(
Another aquaintance has a superb modern cattery struated in the middle of
woodland, plenty of birds about, trees to watch, huge pens, heated etc.
What is grim about either of them?
I think you are motivated by cost here and nothing else. Your poor cats
will get settled in with a new person in a new home, then when it is
convenient to you, you want them back. Not fair at all.

oldmolly:

What is true where you live, may not be where he lives. Conditions vary
all over the world. Where I live now, there are great "catteries" (we call
them vet shelters here).

Where I used to live was horrible. I'm just glad I had friends to take
care of my furry friends when I left for family visits while I lived there
- because the local places were horrible.

Sorry, but I had to give my two cents. One can't take one's fur-family
with them on such a vacation (that would be horrible for the furries); but
do you seriously expect someone to give up *all* of their lives for them
either?

Your comments strike me as having been sparked from jealousy. Well, I'm
not rich enough to take a around the world trip, but neither will I
begrudge anyone else their vacations. In the future please learn that not
everyone is like yourself, and it's pretty damned arrogant to expect them
to be. Learn some tolerance. If we lived in GB we would gladly watch his
cats for the time they need. Unfortunately, we're half a world away...

Just because someone can afford to take an extended vacation does not
mean they are heartless and cruel. I can't afford it, but I have relatives
who are world travelers, and they aren't like that at all. So stuff your
comment back where it came from.

Sorry, but that was a bull**** post, and you know it. I'll get off the
Anger Horse now. Isn't often that ignorance sparks it, but it did this
time.

John, good luck in finding someone. I haven't posted re your post before
this because I didn't know anyone who could help, and I didn't want to
waste your time. But this post lit my fuse - didn't qualify as a troll,
but someone needed some lecturing. Off the soapbox now...

Purrs from the family.

You won't find a cattery like that anywhere in London. Most of them
have pens the size of a cat carrier and barking dogs in the next door
kennels. Certainly no Brahms or R4 anywhere :-(

Not an option I'd recommend for John.

Hi there

We are planning a 6 month trip around the world
and have 2 very cute cats who, at the moment, we
can't find a home for.

We were wondering if there was some kindly
soul - preferably in the south London area - who
would be willing to look after them while we are
away.


John, you may want to consider having someone living in your home. A
cattery would disrupt them and keeping them caged for such a long time
would be unkind, but might be the best option. Try Homesitters (don't
know their details, but they have a web site) or Universal Aunts 020
7738 8987. It may not be that costly for 6 months. Worth a try.

There are fosterers but they're few and far between, and they usually
have other cats around.
