Pet owners, who is babysitting while in the castle?

The dog will go visit my brother. Since I have had same day surgery in the past, I could just put kibble out for the cats and go on my merry way, but with several days hospitalization, wondering what to do here. Distance prohibits DH from running home to open cans of cat food.

One kitty is recovering from a back injury so maybe I need to board him at the vet. He has to have steroids twice daily now. Bro can come over and check on the other three for me.

Two weeks, three days pre-op so I need to make arrangements.

As a multi animal household, I can sympathize! My mom stayed with me the first night in the castle, so my fiancee could go home and take care of the "kids". He came to the hospital in the afternoon the next day, and had everyone , scooped, , or given their meds before he came. I was "let loose" the next afternoon, so the "kids" schedule wasn't too messed up. It worked out well for us. If your kitty's back injury is very recent or if another kitty would pick on him, I would probably board. Check with your vet to see what they would recommend.

Cat could be a lot better in two weeks too

I know I have to taper him off the steroids soon. Vet appointment next week for a progress check so I will ask her. At least the boy avoided getting his left back leg amputated.

babysitting 'furkids"

Hi, I took my two cats to a boarding kennel, basically bc they know when they go there, Mum is going away too and maybe something might be different when they come back. The two cats could cope easier with things that way. The dogs were fine, I arranged a next door neighbour to keep an eye on them and to feed them. As it turned out, my now ex husband was going to be home during the op, but the cats still went to the boarding kennel, I could relax then knowing they would be ok, especially since i was going to be in for a week. The best decision I made, made staying in hospital a lot less stressful.
