I feel more than guilty leaving my cats for any amount of time. Then again, our oldest boy (Who is only almost 6) has a fit when he go to the grocery store and there are no humans around for 4 hours!
A great example would be just 2 nights ago. I had school work I hadn't felt like doing but I had to because the deadline was Tuesday night to turn the papers in. Not much of an issue because I can easily write a 10 page research paper from scratch in less than 2 hours and I only had 2 of them to do
Well someone who wanted the celebrate the 4th early, was shooting off fireworks. Into the transformer.... estimated restore of power time was at least 12 hours
Only my laptop has office on it so I couldn't use my kids when it's battery died, and the only internet was my phone tethered which sucks the power out of the laptop batteries. Only real choice was a hotel for the night since this happened in the early evening around 3pm.
We were gone less than 24 hours, but my cats were left home alone in the dark (we flipped the main breaker switch just in case for when they changed out the transformer and the power surges back on). He still hasn't talked to me yet! I can't wait to see what happens when we will be gone for 14 days (though he will have power and a relative who is suppose to come every 3 days, but comes everyday and spoils them with moist food everyday instead of our 2 times a week normally). He might just want us to leave again at that point!
