Advent calendar post - Day 6  
Firstly - happy birthday to soccer_mum_dee, my partner in crime and long-suffering travelling companion.

Speaking of travelling, the hardest part of going away is leaving my cats behind. Luckily for me, one of my friends, who is also a Birman breeder, recently set up a business as a pet minder, and for $30 per day she came to my house and fed my cats, cleaned litter trays, and generally took care of the furry people. It's so hard to get away if you don't have someone to care for your animals.

Regardless of how good Denise's care was, Ziggy still thought he should have come with me.

Ziggy wants to come with me, next time.

I can see where that would be a problem particularly given that kennelling is distressing for everyone and would cost a lot more than that with a charge for every cat.

Cats are pretty territorial too; they can handle their people going away a lot better than they can handle a move. Having Denise come over was wonderful; I could go away and not worry about them at all.

Poor Ziggy. If customs wouldn't let you take a 200ml bottle of chardonnay on board, I don't like Ziggy's chances of getting through!

Bit rude hey. I should have just swigged it down at the airport!
Alas, poor Zig won't be travelling any time soon.

Yes, my cats have an unerring instinct for when a suitcase is coming out of the attic and take up residence in it the moment it is opened. But the cat-sitting service sounds a brilliant idea. I would much prefer that to a cattery and I'm pretty sure my cats would, too.

Packing's fun when you are continually removing the furry bodies from your suitcase - and it means you can take cat hair with you wherever you go! *g*
