get a nanny or a baby sitter

Answer by ♥♥ Mommy To Be!
You can try asking a relative to take care of them or get a baby sitter.

Answer by Red Ninja Fox 911
Well you could get a baby sitter or try to see what happens when they are home alone. (Leave the house for ten minutes and come back.)

Answer by Deane
Go to camp.. they have half-day or whole-day; day-care; leave them to relatives to babysit…

You can get a sitter or try to find a day summer camp for thier age group. There’s usually alot of activities grouped by age and field trips. I thought my little one wouldn’t like it at first because she clings to me so much but she used to wake me up to get her ready for camp

Summer camp

Answer by gatorgrlz
I sent mine to the YMCA’s summer camp all summer. Check your area for summer camps.

I am a stay at home mum but in Australia many schools run a school holiday programme. It is from 7am-6pm. Our school runs this , it is the same people that run the before and after school care. It is for prep-grade 6. Also the pool runs a programme to (it is a YMCA one) and they do stuff there (not just swimming) and they have day trips

Answer by AlexTrebek
I enroll my son in day camps. YMCA, fine arts center, space and science center. Some camps can be a little expensive, but if you plan ahead and do your research you can find some very reasonable programs. Its also a good chance for them to try new things without committing for to long. Lastly try to collaborate with other parents. Maybe you can take turns driving or watching the kids after camp.

Okay to leave kittens alone?

Okay to leave kittens alone?
I have 2 younger kittens, approximately 8 weeks old, indoor only, fully litterbox trained eating hard food. I will be needing to go out of town for 5 days. Is that too long to leave them alone if I make sure they have enough food/water? If it is too long, are there places that “babysit” them?

The kennel but it’s not cheap. Isn’t there a neighbor or reliable friend you could get to come by at least twice while you are gone? Offer to pay them a little. Maybe they could just take them home for a few days.
I don’t know exactly what terrible thing would happen to them if they had food a water though ….HHUUMMM. Being two of them they would not get lonely, just make sure you don’t leave them loose in the whold house and leave toys enough space maybe a tv on.
You probably would worry the whole time, so for piece of mind make arrangements. Here is some reading.

Totally TOO LONG!

Answer by Roxy_girl

Answer by ty808
too long they would tear up your house. how about a neighbor checking in on them. then go to an animal shelter.

good luck!

Answer by Grampa’s Knowledge
The food part is easy. You simply fill a feeder bin. However, water evaporates rapidly, so they will likely be without water before you return.

Many vets will board animals for a small fee. Don’t be a dicksmack. Take them to a vet for boarding.

Answer by jen
I wouldn’t leave them alone that long. The max I’ve left a full grown cat for is 3 days, and even then had a neighbor check on them. Kittens are very curious and like to get into all sorts of things, including electrical wiring and poisonous plants. Its best to find a kennel that watches cats in your area. It’s relatively inexpensive, if you provide the food. The yellow pages should have a directory for them.

Answer by Linda C
Yes, too long to leave them. What if they spilled their water? What if they got sick? Easiest thing would be to put them in a room and have someone you trust come in and check on them, making sure they have food and water and also give them a little companionship. There are “pet sitting” services that are bonded and can do this for you.

Answer by Vilanshi
Five days without you could traumatize your new friends. You could ask a well trusted friend to come over and check on them once a day and make sure that their litter box gets cleaned and that they get fresh water and food every day. There are many local vets offices that will also provide a kennel service and you could get their shots and check-ups out of the way at the same time. There are services that will babysit them, but my suggestion is the trusted friend choice. I just feel that if you have to take them out of their home at such a young age they may suffer from depression and not eat well. I have a friend that keeps a key to my house in case she needs a place to go in a time of need and she has only used it to care for my pets when I have to go out of town. I leave a set of instructions for her as each pet has different needs. I do the same for her when she has to go out of town also…Friends are better than strangers when it comes to your pets.

Answer by savepaws
Five days is a long time to leave cats alone. If you do not have a friend, family member, or neighbor that could come in and check on them, I would look into hiring a Pet Sitter who would come as often as you request.

My last choice would be to board them at a boarding facility but I would find one where the cats are not boarded in the same area/room as the dogs as that could be much more stressful.

Answer by karen
Check google for pet boarding in your area. I know where I live that it’s only $ 8/day at many nice places. I have a cat that’s a little over 2 years old and the longest I have left him alone is 4 days while I was having surgery. Buy a filtering and replenishable water fountain for them so that eliminates the problem of running out of water if you do in fact have to leave them alone. It works wonders for me. Good luck!

Answer by Ngumbme Goldstein
well first you’d need to figure out whether or not you have a penis.

if yes, then put said penis into her vagina.

this is how you get with a girl

Answer by ~Baby in luv~
get to know her:fav color< flavor of ice cream stuff like that and then ask her if she would ever date you and make sure you say just wondering then watch a movie or do something fun!! at the end of the day/night if she said shed date you ask her out!

Answer by Ty
Play the game where you ask questions about yourself and they guess on them. If they guess wrong an article of clothing is removed, if they guess right nothing happens. Usually ends with both members naked and since you are both naked you will should ask if you could feel her up. Then make magic happen.

Answer by IneedAnswers123123
Okay, First, if you’re hot, then you’re in luck because you should just ask her strait out, like do you wanna hook up with me, I’m a 15 year old girl, and whenever guys ask me that,(or even the ones that don’t but i wish they would) i get excited. Girls love hooking up with people, it’s fun and if you ask her it’ll make the night so much easier, or you two could watch T.V and be talking and out of no where just say “wow, you are so beautiful” when guys say that to me I attomatically feel something, and the fire starts. Compliment her or ease into a little bit, also you two could snuggle, and tell her you really like her, and she’ll makeout with you, just have fun with it, I LOVE MAKING OUT WITH GUYS UNEXPECTIDLY and so does every other girl i know. but whatever you do, dont make yourself excited and then randomly become shy when you meet her, you have to stick with your plan! Hope I helped((:

Answer by cee bees
wow, you are being trusted to babysit and all you can think about is p*ssy??? Girls, don’t just give it up within hours and if you try to touch her without permission-why don’t you add, SEXUAL OFFENDER to your name for the rest of your life, not to mention her father potentially bring great harm to you. My son and husband would crush a creeper like you! Not to mention losing all the pay.

ANd why would a parent trust a same age boy to babysit same age girls. You really sound like a perve!
