Don’t even pay attention to this garbage. It is a cat, they are super independent.. 8 hours? Come on. My parents go to their river house for a three day weekend, and they have someone stop by on Sunday just to make sure there is food in the bowls and water, thats all they need! They just sleep all day anyways! I would definitely check out WARL, that’s where we got our baby girl (hound mix) she is the best, and my wife and I both work full-time, but they recognized that we were good people, and would give her a loving home, and we got to take her home!
