Tent City for the Homeless

 At the beginning of October, San Diego opened a temporary residence (tent city) in Golden Hills for the homeless. They currently have 200 residents including 45 children and about 40 dogs. A plan exists to open a permanent camp site residence downtown on Dec. 1, 2017. There are plans for 2 more campsites after that, housing some 1000 homeless in the county. These campsites are sponsored and monitored by the Alpha Project.
Mission Valley Pet Sitting Services is commencing a campaign immediately to collect donations of dog food, and clothes and toys for the children.

Total Eclipse of the Sun

  As you know, today is the day we are to experience a total eclipse of the sun. Here is some important advice for pet owners from Pet Sitters International.
Best advice for pet owners and pet sitters during the eclipse
   "While damage to pets’ eyes are unlikely, pet parents, as well as professional pet sitters and dog walkers, should consider not bringing pets outdoors for walks or play during the eclipse. Keep pets indoors with windows closed and shades or curtains drawn.
Pet sitters and dog walkers may consider adjusting their schedules to offer their walks at least thirty minutes before or after the eclipse, or recommend that walks for the day be replaced with indoor play instead.

4th of July tips to keep pets safe

Here are some very important tips to keep your pets safe over the 4th of July holiday from Pet Sitters International

  "1. Keep pets inside during celebrations. While many humans love fireworks, they can be terrifying for pets, and a neighborhood that is normally quiet but becomes busy and loud on the Fourth of July can also cause undue stress—even to pets who are normally outside. When fireworks are likely to go off in your neighborhood or nearby, be sure to keep your pet inside in a safe space.

How Long Should you leave your cat alone?

  With the July 4th holiday weekend just a week away, it is important to make arrangements for the care of your kitty if you are going to be away from home. I have had numerous calls over the past week or so for kitty care and many potential clients have requested visits for their cat every 2nd or 3rd day while they are gone. I repeatedly tell them that I will not take on a cat sit unless I get to visit the cat/s every day. Dr. Debra Primovic, DVM agrees. In a recent post on petplace.com she says the longest a cat should be left alone is 24 hours.
