hello and question

We have a sweet little grey kitten with some white his face and white mitts. We call him Mittens. The most affectionate little guy so lovable. Just wondering for when we go a way which is not often does he have to have another cat. We tried three different kittens and they didnt work out.I have allergies and cant seem to take two cats in the house. One is all I can seem to live with comfortably
We are retired and home nearly all the time except for a weekend here and there and go away for about a month in the summer.I could get my grandaughter to come in and feed and water and keep him company every day. We camp and dont know how he would like that.

I keep hearing they need another cat but it just isnt feasible for us.

Thanks for any advice and help

My cousin is really incredibly allergic and I know that for her, she has an asthma pump in every room of the house, along with several HEPA filters and is diligent about vacuuming and dusting. She and her family has about 10 or 11 cats and while it's not easy on her, they help out quite a bit. I know that when we had a friend stay with us, we bought a HEPA filter and that helped alleviate some of the issues (but certainly not all). Another alternative might be to get a hypoallergenic kitten, but I'm not sure how feasible that is.

If having another kitten is really out of the question, then it's all a matter of keeping Mittens entertained. Lots of toys, boxes, and basic activities. When you're away, something to consider is getting a cat sitter. I haven't had to deal with this just yet since we have roommates, but if you can get either a sitter or your granddaughter to come in and not only feed him and change the water, but to get in some solid play time, then perhaps it would be okay?
