Short Cuts:
Who's minding the (other) kids?

A common dilemma for pet owners, what to do with Fido and Fluffy while they are away, has an easy solution: Leave the pets at home and have a sitter come by to care for them. The Washington, D.C.-based National Association of Professional Pet Sitters ( has a number of questions to ask in your search for a reputable caretaker. These include the following.
• Does he visit your home to meet you and your pet, and to get to know you both?
• Does the sitter seem comfortable and competent?
• Does he have a contract that clearly spells out services and fees?
• Is the pet-sitter bonded, and does he have liability insurance? Ask for documentation.
• Does he provide references?
