Leaving a pet alone is not okay.
And when I say this, I don’t mean for a few hours. After all, we have errands to run and jobs to complete. So it is normal for people to leave their pets at home for a few hours every day. And it will depend on the animal if they remain okay without you. This is especially worrying for people who live alone or don’t have any friends or family nearby. Not only that but it also depends don’t the animals’ habits and if they are sued to their owner leaving.
Many pets have separation anxiety and tend to eat and drink less when their owner is not home which I can definitely relate with. I have a cat myself and I had to leave him at home for a few days when I went on vacation since the hotel didn’t allow pets but I did hire a pet sitter to come in every day and take care of everything. I could have sent my kitty to the vet for boarding but he tends to starve himself whenever he is not at home so this was my only choice. But even then, he didn’t eat as much as he used to. So I can definitely understand where the neighbors are coming from.
However, it also seems like they haven’t hired a pet sitter. You can read the whole story for yourself by scrolling below.
This just means that this person hasn’t done it yet.
The story is about a dog who is alone in the apartment.
The doggo is clearly not used to being alone and is anxious.
The original poster wants to break in and save the dog.
However, matters are more complicated than they may seem.
While wanting to save a life is commendable.
She could possibly get in trouble with the law.
People had varying opinions on what she should do.
Some wanted her to go ahead.
Others had a few more questions.
There were a few who wanted the person to be careful.
Honestly, it seems like a no-win situation.
She might just be overreacting.
And the dog sitter might just come tomorrow.
But we don’t know that for sure.
I honestly wouldn’t know what to do in this situation.
As there is no animal control in her area.
And she knows that the police won’t be able to do much for a few days.
Some people did have good advice to give her.
While she isn’t in the wrong, the law may not like it.
I wish she could contact the authorities.
But she made it clear that they were closed.
Other than that, we are still left with questions as to what she did.
