Newbie here, with a question that many have probably heard over and over again. I've had my cat now for about 1.5 years, got him when he was a kitten. My family and I are planning a week vacation, but can't find any available family members or friends to watch him while we are gone. I've been considering taking him to a kennel, but the idea of him confined to a small cage for a week frightens me. Any one has any opinions about Kennels or private cat care places? I don't want to leave him by himself in the house. Would my cat be depressed when I came back after being couped up in a small cage? Please help with advice. Thanks.
