Hi.. I'm new here and wasn't sure where to post this question. I have a 7yr old tabby, Lulu. I have gone on vacation before for not more than 5 days and always had my husband (we are separated) stop by to feed Lulu twice a day and on certain days he would come and lay with her, she loves being held and loves just laying on me (and him). she does not like anyone else and never comes out if I have company. She is very attached to me and she (and I) have routine everyday, esp during the week. I am going on vacation end of month and will be gone 7 days this time and I am stressing over going. I feel horrible leaving her for that long. other people think I'm crazy because I'm upset about leaving her. She has done well in the past when I was gone but I am still worried. She sleeps with me all night and wherever I'm at during any other time when I'm home, she's RIGHT there. Any one have any tips to help make her time without me less stressful or am I overreacting? I forgot to mention my husband will also FaceTime me so I can see and talk to Lulu a few times. I know that I'll be leaving some of my clothing around with my scent on it around the areas she spends alot of time around and places she naps.
