The first thing to do is make sure you have a great pet sitter to take care of them so you know they are fine. Then pack some of your favorite pictures to take with you. Arrange for daily phone calls with the sitter so you can not only get updates but so you can talk to them.

I have someone in my family come and stay with them at my home so they dont have to leave and go through not only me leaving but having to leave thier home too - I am gulity of calling and checking on them every day too! I have also had them ride with when I get dropped off and picked up from the airport, makes me feel better and they enjoy the ride too!

To make it easier on me, I have their pictures on my cell phone or if we're taking the camera, we snap a couple new pictures of them just before we leave so we can see them every night.
