Vacations and Pets - what do you do?
One of the things that's always on my mind is what to do with pets when going on vacation - it's stressful having to think about, and it doesn't want me to want to plan my next vacation as much as I want - not like I travel constantly, but I have traditionally take one trip a year, which is usually 1 or 1.5 weeks. Now that I have cats, I'm feeling a bit resentment....thoughts??
Well, I'm just wondering what you all do when you go on 1 or 2 week's vacation - I know some have suggested using cat sitting services, but at $30 a day, it really adds up - curious how well these services are, and the thought of giving 'strangers' the key to the house makes me edgy. Neighbors aren't pet people, so that makes it a challenge too, and besides don't know them that well. I could board them at $15 a day I suppose, but then the cats will be out of their environment.
Anyhow, I'm open to thoughts and other pet parent's viewpoints to assist me with my thoughts and what options are there.
