Booter, that thread was entertaining. Don't bash .
Once a day meals would certainly make it easier if we go away and need someone to come in and feed her. It's a bit of a hassle to expect people to pop by twice a day to put out food. I think FiancÚ's brother would be willing to do it, since he likes cats, which is great because he only lives two streets away! If we go up to Maine in February for a weekend, he'd only need to feed her once, because I could feed her Friday PM before we leave, and we'd feed her Sunday PM when we got back.
