    We don't go away much (I don't like travelling) but last time got my mum to come over and look after my cats. It would also be possible to drop my cats off at my parents house (they've lived there before) but I'd be worried they wouldn't want to leave!

    There are house sit websites for this. Just a thought, but it's mostly people in the same situation with pets looking for people to mind their homes and care for their pets.

    My brother house sits and looks after our cat. He spoils the cat rotten and it's always deeply unimpressed when we come home and don't stuff him full of fancy food and let him sleep on us all day like my brother does!

    We get a house sitter...a usually friends who are in their 20s but live at home and would appreciate the space

    I'd also be prepared to hire a professional house sitter. I like that my dog is in her own comfort area and not a strange place after we've left her (for holiday)

    Usually my folks if we aren't travelling together, a friend to stay in the house if we are all travelling.

    We send our indoor dog to a kennel (it's lovely, calling it a kennel seems wrong). It truly is lovely she goes into their 'doggy funhouse' with other little dogs, they have constant yard access lots of attention and nice warm beds at night.

    Our dog jumps out of the car to run in, everyone there knows her well and she gets so much attention. It has been owned by the same couple for 20 years. My parents dogs went there and always loved it.

    I don't think a kennel is a bad place as long as it's a good one.

    My dog goes and stays on my sisters farm, it's his version of camping because he has to stay outside with the other dogs, but he gets on so well with two of her dogs and gets to be really dirty and gross the entire time, he has a bath right before he comes home. My cats go to a local Cattery that has heating and cooling and there is a window that gets opened into a private outdoor enclosure and they can bask in the sun.
    In the past I have used lonely pets club and they were good too, just pricey.

    Thanks for your replies.

    We're leaning towards getting an indoor cat. The only thing I'm worried about is, often over Christmas break / summer our trips down to my mums holiday cabin is last minute so catteries would probably be full. (Cats not allowed).

    I do know a lovely lady who feeds pets, but she would probably only visit once a day (for 30min). I'm not sure if a cat would be happy only being visited once a day (when their used to someone being there in the morning and evening.

    I could pay her to visit more...but that would be costly.

    I know my cats wouldn't mind if they only had one visit a day.
