Worried about leaving cat with brother

hello again,

ive asked a question here once before regarding my cat. Well, im going on a 5 day vacation and i wont b bringing her with me. For the five days i will be giving her to my brother. he will take her to his house to take care of her. (my brother moved out like 3 months ago) I am scared out of my mind that my cat will be scared and when i get back i don't know weather she will be the same. i am only 15 but im still very very very scared for her. Will she still remember the house when i get back and pick her up? will she remember me when i get back? will she be the same when i pick he up and bring her home??

Five days is nothing at all and i wouldn't worry. Cats are very adaptable creatures and can cope with a few days away from their owners. Just think of all the cats who are put in kennels for weeks while their owners are away. You can bet that when they are picked up that they will be over joyed at seeing their owners again.

I have left my cat in the care of neighbors before and have always received a lovely welcome home.

Please don't worry, as long as they are safe and get plenty of nice food etc while you are away they will be fine and will be happy to see you again.

best wishes kate
