Get someone to come by every other day to clean the box and feed them. They do get lonely but again it's not like a dog where you have to take them for walks twice a day.
On the other hand, if you have a dog you can leave them at one of the many dedicated care services around... This is expensive of course. With cats, you will definitely want to leave them at home as they tend to freak out if they are taken somewhere new
