If you are making plans to go on your first trip as a cat owner, you may be thinking about how to prepare for your absence. While you may know that you are going to get pet sitting service, you should think about all the ways that you can gain peace of mind while your cat is being watched.
Heating and Cooling
Before leaving on your trip, you should inspect the heating and cooling system to make sure that they are both working properly. Using these systems leading up to the trip can give you the idea that they will work while you are away, but you may want to get a professional inspection.
Going through this process will help you know that the heating and cooling works and will be able to keep your cat comfortable in case of major temperature changes inside the house. Since a pet sitter is quite limited in their ability to fix these important systems, you can look forward to an improved pet sitting experience for your cat when temperature is not a possible concern.
Photos or Videos
Some pet sitters may do a great job of watching your cat and house while you are away, but you may find it hard to tell without any photos or videos. This make it worth hiring a cat sitter who will provide either photos, videos, or both whenever they visit your house. Seeing photos or videos of your cat being cared for at home can make you feel a lot better during your travels.
Picking a pet sitter that lives close to your home is a great idea because this means that they will have an easy time checking on your cat even when conditions change. For instance, a cat sitter can get into a vehicular collision in which their car no longer works, but being close to your house means that they will be able to get there through walking or biking without taking long at all.
If you are going on a trip in the middle of winter when blizzards are a possibility, you will appreciate the ability for a sitter to reach your house even with snow covered roads.
While getting ready to go on a trip, you should consider these important details when hiring pet sitting services so that you can choose one with qualities that give you peace of mind.Share

Unfortunately, many dogs suffer from separation anxiety. My dog would rip my house up from top to bottom if I left him out of his kennel while I ran to the store for a half hour. One day, I left him in his kennel while I went to work and came home to find that he had destroyed the kennel and then my sofa. I knew at that moment that I was going to have to do something better for him while I went to work. The very next week, I began taking him to doggy daycare and I have noticed a great improvement in his behavior. Go to my site to find out about doggy daycare and learn if it is something that your dog can benefit from.
