I live in Lake Wylie just across from the Buster Boyd Bridge, so I am posting this in the Charlotte and York County Forums. I need a pet sitter for the week of 9/13-9/20. I know of a number of teenagers who do this in the community, but one cat needs an insulin injection 2X a day and I would feel more comfortable with an experienced adult. The pets are 2 cats and one dog (needs to be walked 2X a day). Any recommendations would be appreciated.

YOur vet likely has vet techs who pet sit. They certainly know how to care for medical needs.

That is my problem. The tech from my vet pet sat for the couple next door to me. She would come in the morning, take the dog to the front yard for 5-7 minutes until it did its business and return the dog to the house with out cleaning the mess in the yard. The same thing ocurred in the evening. If I figured out the hourly wage, it was over $100 per hour. Actually it is not the money issue but the lack of exercise for an activedog.

I may be able to help out, it sounds as if we live close to eachother. My daughter and I pet sit for neighbors in our community. I have given injections before but would need to be shown what the kitty is used to.
We have 3 dogs and enjoy playing and giving lots of excercise!
