Many people have pets, and most of these people adore their pets. But what happens when you need to go out for a weekend, do you leave your pets at home? This can be done, there are time release food containers and the suchlike that can help you in your endeavors. Then there are also appropriate kitty litter trays that will deal with the whole mess and odor problem without a fuss. Or for a dog you could always have a dog flap installed, especially if you have a fenced in garden.

Of course this approach also works for cats, although the fenced in garden might not be a deterrent as cats are notoriously independent and like to roam the streets. If you don't want to take this chance then you could always take your cat with you, or leave it with some willing friends or even a shelter for a few days.

If you've got birds then its not such a problem leaving these pets at home as they'll be quite alright as long as you top up their feed and water. If it's for longer than a day or two though, you might want to consider releasing them into a ventilated room from which they can't escape. This will give them the chance to stretch their wings and will be greatly beneficial to their state of mind.

Most animals are highly sensitive and will react adversely if you leave your pets at home for too long. They might even become ill through various conditions that prevail while you're not in the house to oversee their needs. There are other ways to deal with this and if you know that you'll only be gone for a short while, then you could always ask a friend or neighbor to come and check up on the pets at home.

If you're going away for a longer time than a week though you really shouldn't leave your pets at home as this can only lead to disaster. Not only will your home be wrecked by the time you get back, your pets will be pining for you, yes even your cat, and they might have gotten to all the food quickly and not have had anything to eat other than your shoes for the past few days.

So think twice if you're leaving your pets at home for a long time. If it's only daily when you're at work it's alright but you might still want to look into getting them something to keep their interest and take away their boredom. Otherwise you might still come back to a wrecked house!
