We rescued a cat recently that was left out by a dumpster with a little bit of cat food. Poor little girl! She's very lovey and we're happy to have her. However, it has been a long time since I've lived with a cat! Does anyone have any tips to keeping a kitty happy? She's under a year old we believe, and we're hoping the vet can tell us more. She and my dog are getting along well together. They were cuddled up while sleeping last night. :wub: One thing I was wondering from other folks with kitties -- what do you do when you go out of town? We go out of town for a weekend every few months or so (and then a week or so during the holidays). We just bring the dog with us, because he can stay at my dad's house. The kitty would not be able to do this, because my dad has a very territorial cat who barely tolerates the dog's intrusion. I was thinking about getting her boarded somewhere, but I am afraid she would feel abandoned again.
