I have a red with white colored cat called Pluk. I found it hard not to have her around for a year. We were lucky we had neighbors who took good care of her. My mother bought a fake lookalike cat we could hug when we felt said. Together with your parents and siblings you will find a good home for your pet. At first you will miss him, but during the journey you have so much more to do then to miss him. When you return you’re pet will be waiting for you and in my case there didn’t change anything. It was like I haven’t been gone.
