|I know many cats are boarded and do fine but my vet said I shouldn't be boarded if at all possible. He said, for me, it is just too stressful. I won't eat, and when I do eat, I vomit a lot. Even one afternoon was too much for me.
When mommy was in college and too poor to afford to board me, she would leave me alone when she need to go out of town. The longest she left me was 4 days and 3 nights. She left me with two big bowls of food (really it was enough for about 10 days), lots of water and a clean litter box with extra litter. It was lonely but I was fine.
Now, she has her brother come over and play with us when she is gone. Now I have Marina to keep me company so I'm not so lonely. Mommy still leaves way too much food and water and we have 3 litter boxes. Mommy's brother is mostly there to make sure we are ok and have human contact every day.
There are also professional pet sitter companies that will come in up to twice a day and feed and water your cats, check the mail, water the plants, etc and it costs about the same as boarding. You have to make sure they are licensed and bonded but that could be a good option as well.
