what to do with kitten when i go on vacation

what to do when you go on vacation and have 7 week old tiger cat

I assume you mean a tabby cat or Bengal and not an actual tiger cub.

You will have to either take your kitten to a friends house so they can look after them or find a cattery which is prepared to look after such a young cat.

At 7 weeks old they still need a lot of care and attention. they may not be fully weaned yet as this normally happens between weeks 8 to 12.
it really is rather unfortunate that you have to go away now. your kitten cannot be left alone for too long and so a neighbor pooping in to feed will not be good enough. As i say you need to either find a cattery to look after your kitten while you are away or for a friend to take them tot their house.

I have some information about feeding such young kittens and also about weaning, if you do get a friend to look after your kitten they will need to understand this information. here are the pages

Think of the kittens
by: Kevin Johnson

I believe that bringing a kitten into your home when you have a vacation planned is an unfortunate choice.

Unless you have someone who can house sit for you, the animal will have to go to a cattery and even they will look askance at this. Kittens require attention from their people and bonding to their environment, and shoving them here and there when they become inconvenient isn't good for them later in life.
