Take time to think about what makes your pet comfortable in your absence- is it a favorite toy or blanket? Would leaving
the TV or radio on for periods of time be a comfort for them? Dont forget to look at the weather forecast for
the time you will be away- you may need to adjust your home temperature accordingly! Make sure your alarm clocks are set on
"OFF". It is very stressful for a pet to hear an alarm go off with no one there to turn it off! Do you have neighbors that
are friendly with you, that you need to inform, that I will be siiting for your pet and home? I would be happy to meet with
them,if necessary, so they know who I am. Please take the time to secure all aspects of your home and property ( i.e. wobbly
fencing, holes dug in yard, etc) to ensure your pet cannot escape! Also, dont forget to tell me about any small pets
your kids may have ( fish, lizards,turtles,mice, rats, hamsters, gerbils) I will need to know about them as well....
