OK, all.....took care of the family emergency (everything under control), and I am glad that in the midst of all the chaos I didn't have worries about my kitten in the back of my head.

As it turned out, I COULD have left at this point for home - arriving at the house before dark - but I would be stuck in city rush hour traffic, adding another 45 minutes to the trip. But, better safe than sorry, and I know I made the right decision (even if it DID cost me $60 for a 24-hour boarding stay).

Yes, you definitely did make the right decision. The cost of peace of mind is negligible.

Yes but you don't leave the cat completely alone, shut up and isolated, for 24 or more hours do you? No, you go in and talk to the cat, feed her, clean her litter box, exchange scents, begin the bonding process.

Establishing a safe room for a new cat integration is not the same thing as leaving a 7 month old kitten shut up in a tiny space (or a whole house even) on her own all by herself for 24 hours. Not the same thing at all.
