I don't want to put my cat under the stress of leaving the house, even for two days. My father is strongly against the idea of me giving my house key to a volunteer (I volunteer at a cat rescue) to feed her in the mornings and says if I leave the cat alone for a few days, it'll be fine. I know cats are independent, but I can't agree with that.
Basically, what should I do for my cat to make sure she's taken care of for those two days? Should I give one of the volunteers my key anyway and just not say anything about it? Should I suck it up and take her elsewhere? Should I leave extra food out for her? Or should I just stay and make sure she's fed and taken care of? Any advice at all would be appreciated!
