Pet sitters

It is important to plan ahead when you will be away from home for any length of time. There are several options available to pet owners to ensure their companion animals will be well taken care of in the owner’s absence - in-home pet sitting, leaving your pet with a friend or professional pet sitter at their house, or a professional boarding facility. Read these things to look for in a boarding facility.

Since cats in particular are creatures of habit and don’t necessarily appreciate change, in-home pet sitting will most likely be the preferred choice.
