I am from Japan and have always had a cat at home. I love to take care of cats because taking care of something brings happiness, and this is particularly true with cats. The idea is that the cat has a holiday at least as good as the one you are on, so the cat may not want to leave when you return!! Alternatively, if your cat wants to stay at home, I can come to visit them at your place. So, if you need someone to look after your loved-one I would love to hear from you.
