anna0511 Posted November 25, 2011 Share Posted November 25, 2011 I'm going to be moving to Asia in December, to study and to be with my long-distance boyfriend. Until now, I was all set on bringing my 4 year old kitty with me. But as the move dates near, I'm not sure it's such a good idea, and I wonder if it might be better to leave her with here with a friend of friend, who's willing to take care of her. Obviously, I adore her and only want what's best for her. I'm wondering if any pet lovers here might have some advice. Reasons why I'm getting anxious: -It's going to be an 18 hour flight, plus layovers. -I'm not sure how permanent this move is (could be anywhere between 7 months to 1 year and a half, before we come back). -My boyfriend has a cat allergy, though he really likes her and is willing to cope with it (I've used a product on her fur to help control it) -The country I'm going to is not particularly pet friendly, and I'm worried about not being able to find cat sitters when necessary. Also worried about the smallness of housing. And while she's an indoor cat, she occasionally slips out and comes back without me worrying too much. If she somehow got out there, I don't think I would see her again The problem with leaving her behind is that I'm not sure how reliable her "host" family would be. While I know he's a responsible person who would take good care of her, his living situation is somewhat precarious as he an out-of-town student who may or may not be going home to his family during school holidays. Another option would be to find another home, but I think we all know how difficult it is to re-home adult cats. Also, cost is not a big factor here. Should she stay here, I would cover all her expenses. Moving her isn't very expensive either. Any thoughts? I'm really torn... Link to comment
