I have a bit longer trip coming up, 13 days. Bf will be at home most of the time except for three days when he needs to travel for work, when pet sitter will come. Pet sitter will be coming anyway once a day every two days anyway just in case there are any problems since this is the first time for him to take care of the kitties for a longer period than just a couple of days.

I am getting a bit stressed out, please tell me everything will be fine. Sophie has diarrhoea today (new food, little princess started refusing what she used to eat before), normally I would just observe for a day or two but I am trying to make an appt just in case since I need to travel on sat.  Since the vet does home visits no big stress for her, and better for my peace of mind I guess.

I am leaving detailed instructions to both bf and pet sitter, and pet sitter did OK before when we were in Taiwan. Bf can give Max his pills with no problem, and Max is probably the easiest cat in the world to pill - he comes running when you tell him its pill time, and he purrs when getting his pills, gets petted a lot after and gets a treat so I guess he enjoys pill time Wink
 
Bf will also meet another pet sitter which is a backup option on Thursday. He has met the vet before (and they actually have quite a bit in common since they are both from Australia and like running&marathons and were even discussing possibility of going running together). I'll also show bf the location of closest 24h animal hospital just in case, and he'll have all the necessary contact numbers (regular vet, backup vet, 24 h hospital).

Any advice or comments?

It sounds like you thought of everything . I am sure they will all be fine , but I know you will still worry ! Try to enjoy the trip & remember to tell him not to hesitate to come here with any questions he may think of while you are away .

I'm sure everything will be fine Alek. It's hard to trust your babies with other people but your bf sounds like a good responsible man and the sitter did fine last time. 13 days seems like a long time but it will be over before you know it.

It is never easy to leave the kitties in the care of someone else, but it seems like you have everything covered well, Alek.  Relax and have a safe and pleasant trip!

Just came back from a weekend in Taiwan, used a different pet sitter this time, all fine. So now I have two OK pet sitter options for future travel.

Taiwan pics:






First two waterfalls were a series of seven, not many people, but well maintained trail with well placed ropes for climbing the steep/slippery sections. IT is possible to continue the climb after the last waterfall following the stream it was very beautiful.

The last waterfall was an easy walk, and consequently a lot more people there.

Very pretty, Alek! Glad you found another OK pet sitter so that you now have two.

Wonderful pictures of the waterfalls! I can almost feel the spray and hear the sound.
