Default Cat-Sitting

The neighbor is going on vacation so I get to cat sit her two black kitties,
Schwartzie & Fedders! Yay!

They are normally indoor-outdoor kitties but when she's gone for more than a
day they're confined to the IN. She warned me Fedders might hork up a few
hairballs and said I'd need to walk around looking for the ugly black blobs.
Said she'd leave the cleaning supplies on the counter. Oh, and Schwartzie
gets very mad at her when she's gone so if he starts having "litterbox
accidents" (out of spite) to go ahead and let him out, just please make sure
he comes in at dusk. Um, okay. Schwartzie is the people-shy one so I hope
if I have to let him out I can get him to come back in!

They get a mixture of three kinds of dry kibble (spoiled?!), a scoop of
each, in the mornings and split a can of gooshy food at night. She said
they might even deign to come out from hiding when I break out the food
She's going to close off the two back bedrooms so it will be easier for me
to figure out where they might be.

Of course she's given me her contact info, the vet info, etc. Thank
goodness they don't require medication. This should be fun!

I hope you enjoy it and don't have any problems.

I know what she means about the litter box "accidents". My daughter and her
husband used to have a cat who resented their going away. Their cat sitter
left detailed notes about everything that she found on each of her visits.
Quite a few of those notes referred to a "present" Acey had left by the
front door.

If you need a break from being with your mom all the time, this gives
you the perfect excuse to go next door for a couple of hours "for the
cats".
