    Silly season has become another part of family life. Pets and other parts of our lives become secondary to the family pressure and ones social peers.

    Pets are catered for in boarding kennels or pet hotels, and house sitters are solicited. Companies are contracted, family made to feel guilty and reluctantly agree to feed and look after....., various "PLANS" are made.

    1) Post your experience/ordeal in having your, pet/tank looked after while on vocation or 2) Looking after someone's pet/tank while they are on vocation.

    I'm never visiting your house! I have a bit of arachnophobia.
