going out of town tips
So for Christmas one of my gifts from the husband is a trip to New Orleans! I have always wanted to go!
We will leave on a sunday and come back on a wed. My parents have already agreed to watch our crittes (our dog, the budgie and Rio our Quaker)
The dog and budgie have been there before and should be fine. Rio though will be his first time since we got him a month ago where we will be gone for more than a few hours. My dad is retired and will be home all day. So he won't be without company. he's met them once and pretty easy going. He really liked my mom hehehe
Anyway was curious about any tips for our trip. I hear Quakers especially get mad when you leave on vacation! he'll have his cage there but it will be at their house. He might be cool and just be mad at me when we get back but i am overprotective bird mommy!
We have a longer trip planned in march for spring break. (taking the kids to Disneyworld!) and if this mini stay goes well, the fur and feather kids will go to grandmas again too.
Our other option was boarding. The vet near us boards exotics, although i don't know the pricing. I just figured Rio would be better at my folks. They can give him 100% attention and hopefully won't stress him out too much.
