Cat sitting, 2000 year old cat etching and other cat news

Cat sitting services at The Pets’ Home in Oswego are here to take care of your cat in the comfort of your own home. We know how important our feline pets are to households and a recent article came out helping demonstrate just how true it is. When you hear the word geoglyph, you might think of ancient information and perhaps secrets– the sorts of things ancient societies could teach us. However, a cartoon-like cat may not be the first thing that comes to mind. 

That is just what archaeologists discovered recently in Peru. A 40 yard long image of a resting kitty spans across a hill that is thought to be older than any of the other prehistoric geoglyphs discovered in the area. It looks pretty cute and also shows just how important cats were to communities back then.


With the Pets’ Home cat sitting, your felines can relax in the comfort of their own home when you use The Pet’s Home Kitty Vacation Care.

We will visit your cat(s) as many times as you like to provide love and attention on your cat’s own terms.

During those visits, we will take care of all of your essential cat needs like feeding and scooping of the litter boxes. And of course, your cat will get plenty of TLC from The Pet’s Home.

In addition, your home will get that lived-in look by having your mail, papers, and packages brought in, and lights rotated as requested.

In cute news, the word “zoomies” has been going around to refer to the action taken by cats and dogs where they all of a sudden decide to race around. This video describes a little about that phenomenon.

Daycare dog services and the joys of Halloween for all pets

Daycare dog services provide your dogs a loving home to visit. Boarding services tend to pick up around the holidays, so now is a good time to think about both daycare dog services and Halloween costumes!

Since daycare dog services tend to pickup around the holidays, it is a good idea to start planning ahead. Here at The Pets’ Home Day Care and Boarding, we will ensure your pet is safe, comfortable, and happy while you are away. We also offer you pet pick-up and drop-off services for busy parents, saving you time and adding convenience. All employees bonded, insured, trained in CPR and First Aid. 

Our daycare dog services include 

  • Five acres for exercise, play, and socialization
  • In-ground pool for play
  • Baby pools for smaller breeds
  • A multitude of toys for all ages and types of dogs.
  • We are bonded and insured

Our facility is on 5 acres, 3 of which are fenced in, offering your pet room to run, play and socialize with the other guests.

The play areas are sectioned between small, medium and large dogs. Our in-ground pool offers fun, exercise, and socialization. Smaller pools are available for our petite guests.

We can administer all types of medicine your dog needs and The Pets’ Home is certified by the National Association of Pet Sitters (NAPPS).

Here are three picks for pet costumes of 2020:

Delivery service pet

A lot of us have likely been ordering more from online retailers in the recent months. We appreciate our delivery service workers and what better way to honor them than bringing them into our families through the costumes of our beloved pets?

Species transformation costume

Halloween is a time for fun! Transforming your pooch into a zebra, your cat into a fierce lion, or your guinea pig into a lobster sounds like a recipe for entertainment!

Time for dress-up costume

Would you like to see your pet look fancy? Make this Halloween a time to play dress-up. Add extravagant accessories, exaggerated superhero capes, or anything else wildly ridiculous.

Just make sure your pet is comfortable wearing it!
