If your salsa lessons or Spanish classes leave you eager to travel, you'll have to find someone to care for your pets when you head out of town. Maybe you're not going anywhere, but still need someone to walk your dog, feed your fish, or drive your cat to the vet while you're at work. Check out the East Bay Pet Sitters Association's Web site for a handy list of more than forty pet-sitting professionals. With names covering the gamut of poochie puns -- from Cat Sitty to the Pawsitively Pampered Pet -- the convenient site tells you what cities each company covers and what types of services they provide. It's one-stop shopping for pet care. Collectively, the association offers everything from bird care to grooming to overnight stays. And, since members must get approval to join, pay annual dues, show proof of liability insurance, and agree to a code of ethics, you can select a sitter in confidence.
