Geez, and I thought MY cat was strange. :?
I think a circle of cat minders might be a good idea. I do have neighbours who are at home most of the time and can feed her twice a day. But it might be nice to have some more people up the sleeve. And I guess my flat is big enough to take care of one to two more cats, at least temporarily.
However, I can’t really tell what my little monster is like when being left with somebody else let alone how she reacts to other cats. She is the sweetest little darling and loves almost everybody who comes to visit us. But she kept her cat-sitter awake during my two week cny holiday (mostly due to the fact that she obviously was in heat even though the vet said it would be early enough to have her fixed after i’d come back) and broke his expensive glasses and did some nasty things some of which she doesn’t do when I am around.
Still, it might be worth a try.
