This weekend we plan on going home Thursday night until Monday afternoon/night. Sounds a little long to me but the wife says that if there's enough food, water, and litter cats can pretty much be alone forever. Anyone got any info on this?
On a related note, for how long can a dog, well and properly crate trained, be alone during the day without being miserable or making a mess of its space?

I'm researching puppies (and how to raise them) because I've always wanted one, but I work 10 hour days M-F...I've had some suggested that it'd be fine, others that any dog under 1 year old would be bad news...any ideas, folks?
