Have you considered a house sitter? We went away for a week and arranged for a friend to stay in our house to look after the pets. It also meant that our house looked lived in during the time we were away

I used to pay teenagers a few houses up $10 a day to come twice a day, but the cats were in. I think $20 would be ok and maybe a box of chocolates.

Good luck with your cats.

I would say $20 a day would be fair and then when you return maybe a box of chocolates to say an extra thank you for her help.

I don't think there is any price you could pay a friend or acquaintance that would make a 2 visit a day chore ok. Unless perhaps that person was unemployed and in desperate need of money.
I've used a pet sitter before and it was great (from memory $25 per day,1 visit for 2 pets) - you have to find someone you can totally trust though.
If it were me I would be nervous about leaving a cat outside for 7 days. Had a neighbor do that and her cat went walkabout, poor thing.

Wow! Maybe it depends on where you live? I was going to say in the country, most people would do that for each other without thinking twice about it, but maybe it's just where I live!
If it were my world, people (and not just close people) would offer and be stoked to get a bunch of flowers or a carton of beer or something!
