I have a 15 year old cat that I got at age 10, she and her

Customer Question

I have a 15 year old cat that I got at age 10, she and her sister when sister developed cancer twice. Unfortunately I had to put her to sleep, they where around 11 1/2 at time. Now my remaining cat (her name is Skunk) is very attached to me but does not like people. One time she actually charged my girlfriend after she sneezed. My question is how can I make her feel safe with another of my gf's who will be coming in 3 times a day to feed her, make sure she has water and clean her box. I am going on vacation in May for a week. I have only ever left her overnight once a year and he hisses at my gf. I do believe she may have been mistreated in her original home. Also, she was declawed when I got her.

Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. Has she met the GF who is going to feed her? Could the GF come over a few times before you go out of town and feed her while you are there?
