|Well, I'm going on vacation in a couple weeks, and will be leaving the cat with someone I know.
This person is an experience cat owner, has raised a lot of kittens (since Oreo is a kitten himself, I thought this was good), and I really trust her to do a good job.
1. She swears by Purina (dry food)
2. She freefeeds
She does feed canned food once a day. And I've taken care of her cats while she was away in the past, so they appear to eat the same variety of wet food that Oreo does.
And I'll leave some of Oreo's food with her. No raw, though. She has some strong opinions on that subject, and I'd rather avoid a lecture.
Um...well, aside from really disliking that brand of dry food in the first place, I'm concerned that Oreo will gain unneeded weight from freefeeding. Then again, he is a kitten, and very, very active.
I'll let her know about my concerns. And I'll let her know that I want Oreo to eat the food I provide. But, I can't just ask her to stop leaving her food out for her cats, I don't think.
Will a couple weeks be that big of a deal?
