I will be going away for about a week this summer, and I have 2 cats, one of whom is diabetic and takes Insulin twice daily. Boarding is my only option for them, since I don't have anyone who can stay in my apartment with them. I'm a bit of a wreck at the thought of them being thrown in a cage for a week, thinking of how confused & scared they'll probably be (I know you fellow pet owners can understand). Have any of you boarded your pets for any length of time, and if so were they traumatized by it, or did it have any lasting effects? I know I sound a bit psycho, but they're old cats and they haven't been away from me since I adopted them last year.
