If you have to go away at short notice, you’ll probably have a long list of things to manage first. Cancel your paper delivery, let the milkman know when to come back, pack a case and depending on where you’re going, you might need to change some money too.
If you’ve got children you’ll need to sort out childcare too. Then there’s your pets, hopefully the local kennel will have a space available for them. You may not be able to cut corners with the other items on your list, but there may be a pet solution available to you. How does an automatic pet feeder sound?
Well, these programmable devices can automatically release the right amount of food for your pets, every day, as long as there is enough food available inside. What if it jams though? Don’t worry, the latest pet feeders are jam proof, so you don’t have to worry about hungry pets.
You can buy the programmable Pet Feeder now. You might want to fill it up with some budget cat kibble or doggie digestives, because it’ll cost you $250 (£165). If you’re out of the house for extended periods each day this will be a great asset.
If you’re planning on going away for weeks at a time then you’d be better off sending your pet to a kennel. They’ll be able to feed your pet and look after whatever other needs it has. That’ll be much better than coming home to an almost empty pet feeder and a large selection of pet poop.
