If you are thinking about adopting an animal there are some serious questions you need to be asking yourself. A pet is at least a 10-15 year commitment so it’s important to be committed. Here is a list of 11 things to think about before you adopt a pet.
7. Who Will Pet-Sit When You’re Away?
Do you travel for work, or plan to go on a few vacations? If so, you’ll need reliable friends, relatives or money to pay for a boarding kennel or pet sitter, according to SSPCA. I’d vote reliable friends, as they’ll probably all be clamoring to “babysit.” (And as a side note, you shouldn’t make leaving your pet behind a habit.)
