Greetings one and all...

The short: I'm worried about my cat.

The long: (Before I dive in I should mention that I never gave my cat a name as I was worried she mightn't like the one I chose for her. So hereafter my cat will be referred to simply as 'she' or 'her'.) Okay, so she has been living at the family home for close on ten years. I moved away from that residence about a year ago but could not take her with me as my apartment building does not allow pets. On the Saturday just gone my parents left the country for three months on business, but they only e-mailed me yesterday and informed me that the family friends who are housesitting for them have two cats of their own. So now my cat is at a house that she has always known as hers, but with two strange people and two strange cats, and I'm thinking that's probably all the incentive a cat needs to feel totally abandoned and run off into the night.

Is that a likely scenario? If I speak to the couple minding the house and they say "Oh, all the cats are getting along just fine", should I rest at ease or can I still worry myself sick?

Thank you.

If they say she is fine than I wouldn't worry. I'm sure your parents trust the people they are allowing into their home. I've never heard or a story of a cat running away because of that. I wouldn't worry.

I agree with Bengalsownme. If your parent’s friends say everything is going fine then I wouldn't worry. And if you still are just a little, give then a call now and then to check how everything is going. It wouldn't hurt and it might make you feel better. :)

It's natural to be concerned about a pet but I should think your cat is fine. As lexxie said, I would still check up on the cat sometimes. If you are worried she might not feel 'at home' why not ask if she is being fed the same food as before etc? Little things like that can help a cat settle in.
