Wilbur is my youngest son's cat that doesn't like anybody but my son. He actually lives in my son's room and each day we put Wilbur outside in the cat den for about 4 hours to play. He just wants to be with my son and is completely antisocial with anybody but him. So Wilbur is going to a fancy $30.00 per day boarding facility while we're gone. No sense in the Petsitter dealing with him. Hell...it might be cheaper to rent a room for the little booger at a motel! LOL
Our other girl "Newman" has epilepsy and requires a pill 2 times per day. She won't let anyone give her a pill but me, so our Petsitter has to deal with Newman. She's too fragile to go into a boarding facility - even a fancy one. Our 22 pound white cat takes anti-anxiety medication each day or he'll pee in her suitcase.
Sheets have to be washed, cat dishes cleaned...of course, *somebody* barfed on our bed last night, so all our bedding has to be washed now. Something else for the to-do list.
I don't think
Just getting the house in order is crazy - but getting THE RESCUE in order for me to leave, is crazier! When you run a rescue, you are never "off the clock". I'll have my phone with me for emergencies and questions. I'm meeting with 3 of our volunteers today to go through some training regarding emails and phones. I forget that I easily have answers at hand.
I'll spend much of my holiday on the phone and will make sure WiFi is in the condo we rented. David wants me to leave my cell phone at home. "Is he kidding???" My daughter and her boyfriend are flying into Florida from California to meet us for the week. Once again, I'll be overwhelmed with joy that ALL my little chick-a-dees are under one roof.
Am I complaining? Naaah....I live a blessed life. :)
