Sera cat has been sitting next to me, purring and drooling for the last 2 hours. Normally she is a 5 minute max attention seeker.
We were out of town on a long weekend trip, and had a nice pet sitter come by every day. She played with Sera and fed/ watered etc. However, my old lady was clearly really lonely when we were gone. When we still had two cats, she was not so sad. Getting another cat at this point is not really a viable option, and generally Sera dislikes other cats. At 16+ she is pretty set in that opinion.
Any ideas for something additional we could do for her? We are planning another vacation later this summer and right now, I am a little sad we'll be putting her through this again. She is perfectly well cared for by the pet sitter, and I think taking her to a kennel would be very stressful, but she would be distracted by all those other cats to glare at.
