Mom and dad are going on vacation for two weeks to Europe (something about second honeymoon and friend's wedding in Paris). They are very very worried about leaving me in our apartment for two weeks - they think I am going to be bored and depressed. I thought I would ask the other kitties here at Catster if they had any ideas or tips about what they did during their parents' vacations?
Mom and dad are going to have a pet sitter who I know come to feed me and keep me company for 30 mins or so twice a day every day. But I will be stuck in my two bedroom apartment in NYC the whole time. Since my apartment is on the 23rd floor I don't even get to watch birdies out of my windows here. I would much rather be out at our country house (biiiiig house with 2 acres of land and tons of birdies and chipmunks for me to play with), but mom and dad don't know anyone who can watch me out there and are afraid I might run away if left by myself too long. Instead, mom got me a bird video which I am sorta entertained by. However, Mom is worried that the stress of being gone will make me sick (I am 15 and have kidney insufficiency).
Do any of you kitties have any recommendations of things to keep me from being sad and bored while mom and dad go on vacation?
