What can I do to keep my cat happy when I'm away on a trip?

I need to go on a business trip for a few days. I have someone coming in to feed and and clean the litterbox while I'm away. What can I do to make sure that she's happy while I'm gone.

Cats are social creatures and need interaction with other cats or humans. You may consider asking the caregiver to take your cat to a pet daycare center for playtime during the day. Or ask the caregiver to spend some time entertaining your cat so s/he won't feel lonesome. If you've hired a pet sitter, s/he will spend time playing with the cat. Since cats sleep close to 18 hours a day, this doesn't present much of a problem.
