    Hi Everyone,
    I wanted some advice on what to do when I go away!
    Myself and my partner need to go away for 2 days mid December and I want someone to either board, or look in on Mollie while I am away. Between the two of us we have never actually left her for longer than a 9-5 work day and wondered what people would recommend? If its only 48 hours, do we need to move her? Is it acceptable to have someone look in on her for a short time twice a day while we are away?

    Does anyone know anywhere / anyone in or around suffolk that would be interested in looking after Mollie (the African Grey) for a few days or so while we are away? I would love to build a relationship with someone so when we go on holiday next year she will know the person she's staying with!

    Thank you all for your advice!
    Ben and Mollie

    Hi Ben it’s always a challenge to find reliable and specialist care for the feathered ones when you go away, unless you have family that know about your birds. I’m the opposite side of the Country and mine go to professional boarders a couple of hours drive away from me.

    I will tag in our East Anglian member’s to ask if they know of anyone in your area @RoyJess @JessCheekyMia ???

    Hi @benjaminannas, we live in Norfolk so not too far. We can have Mollie here for you while you are away. No charge we will happily just help you. Jess

    Thanks Jess, thats really kind of you!
    Transporting her isn't really an issue as I have access to a van to move her cage and she will (although grudgingly at times) go into a travel cage.
    It's good to know that if we go away for longer than a few days that there is someone near by that would be willing to look after her! We have no dates in mind yet but I will message you when we know any!

    That's no problem. I will always be here for you when you need to go away. I am at home 6 days a week so I am not going anywhere lol.
