I recently realized how it is hard in this city to find an accomodation for pets when you have to travel. The price required to host the animals in homes is very high and I don't trust pet shops... I believe that not everybody has a maid that can come to your home regularly to change the water and food (or, as in my case, my cat suffers too much when left alone all day long).
So here's my idea: what if we create a group that offers to each other hospitality for some days to our pets (or visit them daily, if preferred)? As animal lovers we could trust each others about the care provided to the pets, it would be free and we could make new friends.
