Taking a Trip? Here's How to Plan Your Pet Care in Advance


Travel time! How do you care for your pets when you need to leave home? Do you hire a pet sitter to stay in the house, have your friends look in on your pets or take your pets to a kennel?

CNN has guidelines for each of these scenarios in Make sure your pet enjoys your vacation with three main suggestions:

  • Look for professional pet sitters that are bonded and insured
  • Invite the sitter to your home for an interview before your trip
  • Familiarize the sitter with your home and the special needs of your pet

You can locate a pet sitter at Pet Sitters International or National Association of Professional Pet Sitters. These sites have useful tips and information as well.

This article and these sites will help you find pet sitting that will be most appropriate for your particular pet. You can reduce the stress you feel leaving them behind, knowing they are being well cared for. Enjoy your trip!

8 Day Auto Pet Feeder--Time the Delivery of Food & Pet Medication


Ergo's 8 Day Auto Pet Feeder is a pet bowl divided into 8 compartments, run on a digital timer with a voice recording. The timer can be programmed for the exact feed time.

This feeder has versatile uses. Maybe you need to go away for a few days and leave food for your cat. It is actually recommended for small dogs and cats that have to be fed small quantities of dry/wet canned food alone or mixed with medication. It is convenient whether you have to be away from home for whatever reason or can administer the food and/or meds yourself.

The timer allows the pet owner to feed their pet at intervals and to deliver pet meds at an exact time. For example, you could feed your pet (or provide meds) 8 times per day for 1 day, 3 times a day for 2.5 days, or 2 times for 4 days or 1 time a day for 8 days etc.

The pet owner can record their voice and the machine will play it back at every meal time, so you can "call" your pet to come get their food. The 8 Day Auto Pet Feeder operates off AA batteries. It holds over 96 ozs of food - 12 ozs of canned food or dry food per compartment. It comes with a removable bowl for easy cleaning and ice packs to keep food fresh for up to 12 hours.

This is a really good idea, especially if you are going to be on the road for any sustained period of time. The Extend-A-Seat gives your doggie a flat, cushioned platform to lay on, as opposed to stepping into the drop between the front and back seat. It attaches to the rear bench seat of most automobiles and blocks the space between the seats. Frees up that much more room, too. Folds flat for compact storage.

Dimensions: 51” wide and 15” deep. Designed for dogs over 30 lbs.

At Amazon. Hat tip Super Cool Baby.
