    How much would you pay?

    Advertisements
    DH and I are going on vacation this week after my last final. We'll be gone for two glorious weeks

    We have two cats that his buddy at work said he would check in on. The plan is he'll go to the apartment every other day to make sure the cats have water & food and to clean the litter boxes. How much would you pay him?

    Assuming the buddy is local, $20 for each day he checks in probably.

    I would probably pay $100-150 for the two weeks.

    How much of a drive is it for him to get to/from your apartment? That would factor in as I would want to be sure we were not just paying enough to cover the commute, but also enough to actually compensate for the actual visit.

    I think $20 per visit sounds right.

    And apparently the apartment is on his way to/from work. I'm also thinking $20 a visit. But I wanted other opinions

    Be sure to also bring him back something from the trip. I have neighbors that we just swap chores with when one or the other goes somewhere and friends that I pay (just depends on who is available, etc)- I always bring back something from the trip as an extra "thank you"
