If you go away on holiday you also need to consider who is going to look after your cat. If you are only away for a day or two you can ask a neighbour to pop in and feed it and check it is OK. Many people use friends, family or catteries (be careful to choose a reputable one!)
But, there is another option that you may want to consider. If you're away for more than a few days you may want to consider a cat sitter. Trusted Housesitters is a great solution!
