The OP has been a lot more willing to go through negotiations regarding this
OP's future MIL dropped the gem of telling them to just board their cats for the weekend she wants to come over
On top all these, she also started talking about spending a few weeks in their town
Redditors headed towards the comments section to drop their one cents and here are some of them below
A hotel sounds like a better option for everyone
A redditor wants someone to explain to their MIL what cat dander and allergies means
She should board part of her family since she wants the OP to board part of hers
The OP shared this somewhere in the comments
Our cats and dogs get along due to months of training and slow introductions. Our cats are fairly dog savvy, but it definitely depends on the dog's attitude and prey drive as well. We've had to turn away fosters who are known for chasing small animals. I'd rather not be stressed out about my cats when she's visiting. TBH if I could spend the say hiding under my bed like my cats when people are around, I would.
Guests don't need to stay more than a couple of days unless the host allows it
She can board her dogs since she has enough money to travel to the OP's place
Telling her to find a hotel that accepts pets
The cats will come home to a place that smells like foreign dogs
Some redditors mentioned that even if the cats were to be boarded, they would come home to a place that would still smell like foreign dogs, and this would stress them out. So they won't just be stressed out while brought boarded at the kennel, but they'll also go through further trauma when they get home, where they are supposed to feel safe, and that's just wrong.
