Some Tails on Tuesday advice on how to cope with human holidays! My humans think that they can just laminate me to take me on holidays and it will all be ok. No such luck!
I HATE being left by the humans and I try to make it as hard as pawsible for them to leave.
Here are my top tips for how to protest when you know you are being left behind.
1. Mexican stand off in the suitcase.
Do not give up. Burrow as hard as you can! They will eventually drag you out of it to save said suitcase.
Enough time spent will ensure that your pheromones and fur are in all their clothes.
2. Get sick suddenly.
There is nothing quite like a sick pet to quickly increase your human feelings of both love and guilt.
My pink eye saga was quite dramatic, and resulted in loads of sympathy, extra food and trips to the vet.
If you can’t plan this then kitties might try running into something, or just not eating.
(I know it is hard, but going off your fancy feast will cause grave concern.)
3. Look cute at all times (add sad, blank eyes for effect.)
This kind of face pulls right at the humans heart strings. They will walk around saying things like “she knows” or “I feel so bad.”
If abandonment is inevitable then this kind of face might even earn you extra treats in the meantime…
4. If all else fails…. cause havoc for the pet sitter.
Remember this is YOUR house. If they leave you with some silly purrson, you need to tell them WHO is the boss.
Sometimes humans will come and they will think that it is their job to be the master of you. No way.
Get into that tupperware cupboard. Test the limits of what is pawsible.
Hope that helps you my kitty furriends.
We must take a stand on being left behind.

Meow for now.
