So you’re going away?
….And your pets know it.
Max sits and stares at you with sad, soulful eyes. Mittens jumps into your suitcase, clambering back every time you remove her so you can pack.
Whether you’re leaving for a week or weekend (or longer) leaving your pets is a primary concern; for them as well as you.
You could ask your neighbors to freshen their food and water, but that’s an imposition for them, and obligates you to future favor as it does with adult family members.
Here’s why you need a pet sitter instead:
Your pets are part of your family. They unfailingly provide companionship and unconditional love, so separation is hard on both of you. It’s a pet sitter’s job to keep your furry friends safe and happy, and your home secure, while you’re away.
- Pet sitters are qualified and professional. You won’t have to worry about a meal accidentally missed – sitters care deeply about the animals in their care, and make sure all the needs are attended to per your request..

- Your pets have companionship. Your fuzzy friends will be walked and played with according to their own established schedule, and to your instructions. Walks will always be on time, and your pets’ unique favorite things will be there for them. Does Max have a favorite squeaky toy? Does Mittens go nuts for the elusive red dot? No problem.
- Familiarity breeds no stress. Surrounded by familiar smells, sights, and sounds, your pets will have their normal meals at the normal times, and sleep in their very own comfortable beds, stress-free and happy.
- Home care is safest. By staying at home, your pets won’t come into contact with other s– possibly unvaccinated – animals, as they might at a boarding kennel. They stay on their own routine and diet. Pet sitters are carefully trained in health issues and animal first aid, including pet CPR. They’ll immediately update you with any concerns, and follow your instructions.
- Home security. It’s an added benefit: your home is less likely to come to the attention of unsavory types if there’s ongoing activity and someone’s clearly there. Blinds can be closed at night, lights turned on and off … bad guys will never know you’re gone.
Find a good one. They often cost far less than a boarding kennel … and they’re well worth the price!
