The Question Club
So, we have a young kitten. We got her at 5 weeks old (too young - due to some circumstances out of our control) and now she's 10 weeks old. Unfortunately, we already had last week and this coming week booked for travel for my husband's work, but luckily some friends stepped up and offered to take her for a week each. We love her, I love love love cats and all animals and have wanted a cat FOREVER. She is like my baby, as much as a cat can be (surprisingly, a lot).
Friend #1 is more of an acquaintance, but part of a network of people here with cats who cat-sit for each other. The kitten was supposed to go with friend #2 as of this weekend.
I just got an email from friend #2, stating that the 6-year old daughter of friend #1 is very attached to our kitten, therefore they may decide to keep the kitten with friend #1 for the duration of our trip. No one discussed this with me, I was only notified today as I emailed about pick up times.
We wanted our kitten to get used to both friend's cats so that in future it would be smoother if we cat-sit for them and vice-versa. We also don't want her getting too attached to this little girl, which will make our return harder on both our kitten and the little girl. We are confused and a bit annoyed that no one bothered to let us know about the change of plans (or potential change of plans, I'm not even sure if it's set in stone yet).
Are we over-reacting? Friend #2 says I'm worrying too much, and that it will all be fine. She is just telling me that they will take care of it and not to worry. I think I just miss my kitten, but I feel like they should have at least let us know... :/
Dk/Dc - What are your weekend plans?
