The story so far :-
We are going away for 2 weeks in September and leaving our 2, elderly cats to be looked after by a neighbour. The cats will stay here, the neighbour will pop in twice a day to feed/water/muck out.
Mr Slug has decided that it would be a good time to get someone in to re-wire our house. Pro is that we will be away and not disrupted. Con is that I am worried about the cats.
Cats are elderly (nearly 18 now). They both like people but also like a quiet life. The girl cat is a bit timid and a bit dim. I really don't want to put them in a cattery as I feel they are simply too old for the disruption - and boy cat gets in a real state in the car (or even just seeing the cat basket).
Many years ago, when I first met MS, I lost my little cat cos MS was careless (left door open despite being warned not to) when he had workmen around - we never got the cat back. I'm not happy with the thought of risking a recurrence.
MS says I'm being totally ureasonable and that this is by far the best option, the cats will be fine and everything will be hunkydorey by the time we get back.
We've both agreed to listen to forum opinion before making a decision.
