We are very sad to read the recent story of a pet-sitter in his 50’s who has suffered a stroke and is unable to communicate the location of the pets he was caring for.

Thank Goodness this is an extremely rare situation, but obviously sometimes things go wrong. Here are some fail-safe tips to consider putting in place, to give you and your pet sitter peace of mind should the unexpected happen.

  • Consider asking your pet-sitter to provide ‘keeping in touch’ updates – this could be daily, bi-weekly or weekly.
  • If you aren’t able to communicate with your pet sitter directly ask a friend or family to be the ‘go to’ contact in your absence.
  • If you choose a solo pet sitter, agree an emergency plan should they suffer an unforeseen situation.
  • Tell neighbours you are going away and whom you expect to stay or visit your home. If something odd crops up, ask them to get in touch or call your nominated ‘go to’ contact.

We are keeping our fingers crossed that all the hard work trying to locate the dog and cat pay off, and they are found very soon. We also wish a speedy recovery to the pet-sitter Tim.
