rescue remedy

    I have to board footsie again starting tomorrow while I'm away on business. I feel so guilty leaving him.

    I bought some rescue remedy that I'm going to give him in the morning to hopefully make it easier to get him into his carrier and also relax him when he first gets there. Last time I dropped him off he was hissing at me and the people that work there.

    I gave him a drop of the remedy a few nights ago to make sure he wouldn't have an allergic reaction or anything like that. He seemed perfectly normal.

    I'm not sure how much to give. The instuctions say 4 drops. But, its for drops for cats, dogs, and even people. Does that seem right? I'm 10 times the size of my kitty yet we get the same dose? :shock:

    :0011: Please let me know how the rescue remedy works out. Which brand did you purchase. I may need to buy some for my kitties. How long will you be away this time? Hopefully, Footsie will be ok. :m10:

    I bought Bach's rescue remedy. I didn't know there was any other brand. I found it at the grocery store with the natural cosmetics and vitamins. Pricy. I think its was 1/4 oz for $13!

    I'm gone for 7 days this time. Last time it was 9, and around the 7th day was when I really started to miss him, and get excited about picking him up. Last time too, I think he may have dropped a bit of weight, although they said he was eating fine. Hope this time he'll be less stressed about being there.

    This is so stressful. This is my first over-seas trip ever! And its for a work thing that is very stressfull right now. And I have to leave my kitty. Ahh. I don't even want to go anymore!

    Footsie, I know it's just as stressful for you as it is for your baby to board her while you're gone but it's the best thing to do.

    Hubby and I went on a 3 day vacation back in Sept and relied on family to care for her while we were gone. We left her with pleanty of food and water on day one, that evening: his mom came by and replenished her food and freshened her water bowl and hung around for a couple of hours to keep her company. Day two: His sister was to come by and fill her food bowl with 6 packets of food and refreash her water bowl AND spend the night. But she dropped the ball and only gave her one packet of food, didn't touch her water bowl AND didnt spend the night like she promised. We got home the next day and Booger was starving and her meow sounded dry and raspy. We were furious! Next time, we'll definitely board her at our vet's.

    At least you know that your baby will have company and be well cared for in boarding. You're doing the best thing for him ::hugs::

    Have a safe trip and try to not worry too much.

    It must be so stressful to have to leave your kitty for that long! I used to get heartbroken when I was forced to stay overnight at my mom's house and be away from my babies! I'm so glad it's over!
