My husband and I have planned vacation, I have a Petsitter that lives in my neighborhood and she has been very good. I have never left Mercedes overnight alone but I have left the boy's many times. When I talked to her she had someone that could sleep at my house, a 20 year old women who helps her, tonight i found out the women is out of town so she said her son could stay overnight, I know he has been helping her for years with her business. My problem is the boy will be 18 on Feb 20, I believe he is a very good kid and my pet's like him. Do you think he is to young? I am going to meet him tomorrow with his Mom. If I do not have him stay they will come over at night and put them to bed around 10.I really do not want to board them. I know they will be happy at home. They sleep in the kennels at night and during the day they will be gated in the hall and bathroom. I do not want Mercedes or Edgar falling off the sofa or getting hurt, plus Edgar has had stress seizures. I plan to have them visit 3 times a day but I really wanted someone to sleep overnight. What do you think I shoud do, let him stay, his Mom is just about 1/2 mile or less away or let them stay alone.
