I guess exotic pets present kind of a challenge. What do you do if you see something on camera when you are away? I'd feel helpless!
It's nice that you have family close by to check on your home and pets. What kind of turtle do you have, and how can you tell if he's grumpy?
He tries to bite me more :P I'm not exactly sure what kind he is. My sister let me have him because she wasn't caring for him properly. I just know that I need to clean his tank once a week or there will be a build up of salmonella.
maybe you have a red-eared slider- they can be aggressive as you've described. We had a desert box turtle cruise up the driveway a few years back and kept it in a large outdoor pen for a few days until we could find it a good home. :)

As I mentioned to Duffsmom, check out the pet friendly accomodations and travel sites for those who hate to leave their 4 legged babies behind. You are not alone!

I'm with you! Having a good kennel with round the clock care brings peace of mind so you can enjoy your vacation! Thanks for the comment.
I understand your dilemma. We have a very good boarding facility that our dog loves. The staff has been the same for 10 years or more. There are so many hotels that accept pets now. Check it out. Perhaps this is a good option for you. :)
Cats are indeed independent, and more than one keeps the other from getting bored or lonely. A trustworthy pet sitter is the best since cats don't like changes too much.
