What would happen if you left your home this morning and did not return? What would happen with your pet at home if you did not show up after being gone all day? Do you have a plan set up to have someone look in on your pets if something happen to you? Have you heard of I.C.E? I.C.E. stands for “in case of emergency” Love and Kisses Pet Sitting is on quite a few of our clients I.C.E list. We are their back up plan, to step in and make sure their pets are taken care of if something should happen to them and they can not make it home on time in case of emergency.
Before the day is over, make sure your cell phone has an ICE entry on your call list. I.C.E. stands for “in case of emergency” and should include the phone numbers of at least two people who have access to your home and are comfortable caring for your pets. EMTs, firefighters and emergency room personnel know to look for this I.C.E. entry on cell phones, and if you’re unconscious, it may be the only way your friends, family, or even a neighbor is notified and your pets cared for.
If your ICE contacts can’t be reached, if you live alone, have no friends or family, or are new in town, it’s not a bad idea to find a professional pet sitting service before you need one, which, if all else fails, can at least get to your pets immediately until someone is found to fill in. Find a service with which you’re comfortable and tell them that you’d like to list them as a contact on your ICE list. Make sure the other people you have listed as contacts are aware of the service just in case they can’t care for your pets and can contact them on your behalf.
