No, this is totally normal. I'm just as bad myself. I don't even trust
my husband to do as well as I do.

I know how you feel! But, I think Tasi and Mena like having their daddy take
care of them - their food bowls are certainly at lot fuller when I am out of
town. I guess Blair is afraid they might starve and he would have to explain
it to me ;-).

So don't worry - if they're with someone you trust, which it sounds
like, they'll be as happy as when you're not there. Cats know how to
hurt, and they'll take they're revenge by assuring you that they
didn't miss you a bit.
OK give us you address and we will all give a flying buck to moscow

I know how you feel. I had to go away to college and leave my Symphony
at home for 2 years. She always pretended she didn't know me when I
came home until after the younger kids went to bed. I may have to leave
my new cat with them when I go off to grad school. I am worried because
my family is not as spoiling as I am. And like someone else said about
their cat, I'm more worried now since my Symphony died while I was away
last time. My advice: Take your cats with you if you can. If it's just
a short trip, leave them with your dad. If it's a long thing and you
can't take them with you, leave them with someone you can trust. If your
dad loves the cats too, they should be fine and you can always visit them.
They will remember and love you. You'll be able to be together eventually.

Laura, if you really are serious about taking up a collection, I'd be happy
to contribute a pound. A quid or a buck, it's a small amount for those of
us who are comparatively affluent Westerners. I really don't think anyone
could come up with such a scenario just to make a bit of cash for

No, I assure you I am for real. I do NOT scam people since I was always
taught that doing illegal things and sinning were wrong! I'm one of those
people who actually (gasp and hold on to your hat) tries to HELP others
in need. And yes, I occasionally get taken by scams too.
Please don't wish me happy holidays...we both know you don't mean those
good wishes. I don't mean that as a flame...just an observation.
My husband (computer guru extraordinare) informed me after I showed him
your *** comment yesterday, that I committed an inexcusable faux pas of
improper nettitquette; the sin of asking for help via newsgroup. Since I
am still fairly new to the Internet, I was unaware of having done the
wrong thing. FOR THIS BREACH OF ETTIQUETTE, I DEEPLY AND SINCERELY
APOLOGIZE TO EVERYONE OUT THERE.
I also ask you to remember that YOU were once new to the Internet too.
Don't automatically flame those of us who make innocent blunders. You
probably wouldn't say such vicious things to their face, why cop out for
the anonymity of the Internet?
Someone else posted something to the effect of there being a wave of
hatred and anger coursing through America. I agree...and your posts upset
me very much for their nastiness to me. I truly am trying to help this
person. And no, I don't know if he's scamming ME, but I have other
friends in Moscow I trust who are running checks on him.
Sorry we got into this mess! I'll be unhooking my subscription to this
newsgroup after this post. I have enough in my life (with my own profound
infertility and my husband's liver infection); I don't need it from here
