    Confused Pet sitting

    Advertisements
    When you go on vacation what do you do with your pets? We want to go away for a week with the kids when DH comes home but I don't know what to do with our two cats. One is preggo and will be ready to have babies someday, I'm sure sooner than I would like Do you use a boarding place or have someone come feed them?

    Last year we left for a couple days and had our upstairs neighbors come and feed our pigs, we trusted him so it was cool.
    Last weekend when we went to Vegas, I paid my brother 50$ to come and stay at my house for 3 days to he could take care of my piggies. I don't have normal pets though and I don't think I could ever actually take them anywhere to have them pet sitted, it would stress them out too much.

    I'm thinking it would be stressful on my pregnant momma to take her somewhere.

    You could always pay someone you trust to come by your house at least once a day to feed them and play with them real quick.

    I usually find someone I know to watch them. My dog doesn't do well without people, he's really social. I don't think he'd do well at a kennel, he loses weight when we are gone.

    We usually have one of our friends stop by every so often to feed our cat and clean his box (if we're going to be gone long enough for that). We had him in a boarding place once, and it was soooo expensive that we know we couldn't afford something like that again....

    We've always taken our dog with us, but this most recent time we left to go out of town for the funeral, we had to board our dog at a kennel.

    As far as pet sitters, I would only do that if it was a family member or close friend. I don't trust people enough to let just anyone in my home.

    I have 3 dogs, so my sister comes and stays at the house for me. Thank God she has no life.
