I never had kitties. This one is dealing with lose of former momma and lose of former home. Is their environment more important, more important than their people contact/familarity. I guess that's what you have to decide.
See, not having cats, my instinct was to say, "keep kitty with new family. So it felt safe. You cat owners said to keep cat more physically safe. I was 100% off base.
My guy (an abused doggie) doesn't care where he is as long as he's with me, which means safe. And I would never go somewhere he couldn't. But cats, as a rule are not leash trained, correct? Then I would have to give him up to a safer environment. But it would break my heart.
Whatever you decide, I hope you enjoy your vacation. When you get back to reality, I hope all is well.

I concur with the others. Even as it sounds like he's an outdoors cat (well, both indoors and outdoors) he's had some big changes it sounds like already. He'd likely be happierstaying at home and sleeping off the culture shock of the changes.

I have to agree-he may miss you, but at least he's safe at home. Besides, cats are pretty independent little buggers...

My cat is 8 yrs old. Some may be okay with boarding. Most do not and are susceptible to urinary tract infections. By trial and error, when I'm gone for five days or less I leave her alone - two clean litter boxes, an ample supply of food and water and she's fine. If I'm going to be gone longer I hire someone to come to the house each day. I also do not think it's a good idea to take her along unless she is comfortable in your RV and you can keep her confined in it.

as a kitty-owner, i'd keep him with your neighbor. he may throw fits, then be fine after awhile.
