That's very nice of you - I wish more people would care for their relatives' pets....every day, there's a notice or phone call about someone's mother/father, aunt/uncle either dying or moving to assisted living, and every time it sounds almost like blackmail: If someone doesn't take this cat/dog, I'm either going to throw it outside or bring it to a shelter, mostly kill shelters! You should see some of the photos of these beautiful animals, living in the lap of luxury while their "parent" were taking care of them, on sofas, elaborate beds, pampered...and these poor animals would have to end up like that?

My aunt is going into assisted living (suddenly) and I'm taking her cat. I took my mom's cat, Lucky, last Fall, and he's become part of the household very nicely. This little cat, Princess, is a sweet and mild-mannered little one. I took her to the vet today for a checkup and unfortunately he spied a growth on her tongue. He's biopsied it (so we will know) and I'm picking her up in a couple hours. The thing is, this is very sudden and I haven't had much time to prepare. And I'm going to be gone 12 or more hours a day next week (eek). I can put her in the spare bedroom until the Felv test comes back. But I don't want her to be freaked out or too frightened. I'm hoping that instead of a three weeks, I can try to integrate her in a week or two. This will make FIVE indoor cats for me. I've never had so many. The vet said, "Well, four or five isn't much different." Bless him. What's the conventional wisdom out there? Leave her in the room 7-14 days, or longer? Thanks for your input!
