How to Make Sure Your Pets Have a Happy Holiday Too - Popular Mechanics

In the chaos of the holiday season, it can be all too easy to ignore the impact of the tumult on Fido or Socks (or Xerxes, or Mr. Buttons, or whoever else shares your home). Human holidays are a joyous time to visit with family, travel, and host visitors. But dogs and cats can wind up finding the holidays particularly stressful. Here are a few tips to help your furry friends avoid stress during the holiday season.

Taking Your Canine or Feline Family Along

The first big choice is whether to bring your pets along or leave them at home. While the decision depends a lot on your particular pets, there are a few general trends. Cats tend to handle solitude pretty well if you can manage that and get a sitter in to check on them daily or, if you can afford it, stay over.

Dogs present a tougher choice. While they tend to want to stick to a routine, they're liable to get lonely. On top of that, leaving the dog behind can be expensive. Overnight sitters will run anywhere from $50 to $100 a day. Even if you don't hire someone for overnight, dogs need to be walked several times a day and fed and played with whereas cats can generally get by on one visit per day.

If you decide to take your pet on a trip with you, it should have ID tags, and you should carry copies of documents showing that the animal is up-to-date on vaccinations. If your pet is microchipped (which is a good idea if you are traveling with it) the microchip should have your contact information embedded.

Make sure your pet is in good health if you are taking it with you. If your pet is elderly or ill or dislikes travel, it will do better staying at home with a friend or family member or at a boarding facility (ask your vet for a recommendation). It may be difficult to leave an animal in a boarding home but it may also be what's best for the pet. They will not be happy or even safe on a long trip if they don’t like traveling, even if they like you.

If you are going to another country, plan way ahead—the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) suggests that you begin doing the paperwork six months beforehand. You will need a certificate of veterinary inspection from a federally accredited veterinarian and may need an endorsement on that certificate from the USDA .

If you are driving, a cat or a small dog should be in a comfortable carrier in the back seat. Don’t travel with your dog hanging out the window or in the back of your pickup truck. Take familiar bedding and toys. For larger dogs, a sling that fits over the headrests on the front seat can keep your dog in the back, so it doesn't start exploring the armrests while you're driving. You can also get a harness for a dog and hook it to the seat belt, which many animal-care sites recommend. Whatever you do, don't let dogs sit right by the driver’s feet.

Whatever method of travel you are planning, check with the service (that is, the bus, plane, or train company) way ahead of the date of travel. The AVMA has tips here for traveling with a pet by plane, car, train, bus, or even boat! Also make sure that any hotel you are staying at on the way is pet friendly , and research a good veterinarian near where you are going to be staying, just in case.

If You're Leaving Your Dog or Cat at Home: Hire a Sitter

If you're leaving your pet with a sitter, there are a few questions to consider: Does your pet have any specific medical or dietary needs? Would you rather have a friend or family member watching over things, or a professional sitter? And, of course, how much are you willing to pay?

When it comes to friends or family versus professionals, there are advantages to each. With a friend, you might not feel comfortable asking for what you'd really like in terms of care, but likely have someone you already trust and who is familiar with your pet and... Source:

Indonesia Lion Air flight with 188 on board crashes into sea - KUTV 2News

(AP) — A Lion Air flight with 188 people on board crashed into the sea just minutes after taking off from Indonesia's capital on Monday.

Indonesia's disaster agency posted photos online of a crushed smartphone, books, bags and parts of the aircraft fuselage that had been collected by search and rescue vessels that have converged on the area.

Spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said the aircraft, on a 1 hour and 10 minute flight to Pangkal Pinang on an island chain off Sumatra, was carrying 181 passengers, including one child and two babies, and seven crew members.

Indonesian TV broadcast pictures of a fuel slick and debris field.

The National Search and Rescue Agency said the flight ended in waters off West Java that are 30 to 35 meters (98 to 115 feet) deep.

The agency's chief Muhammad Syaugi told a news conference that divers are trying to locate the wreckage.

The Boeing 737-800 plane departed Jakarta, about 6.20 a.m. for Pangkal Pinang. Data for Flight 610 on aircraft tracking website FlightAware ends just a few minutes following takeoff.

Indonesian TV showed dozens of people waiting anxiously outside the Pangkal Pinang airport and officials bringing out plastic chairs.

The crash is the worst airline disaster in Indonesia since an AirAsia flight plunged into the sea in December 2014, killing all 162 on board.

A report to the Jakarta Search and Rescue Office cited the crew of a tug boat which had reported seeing a Lion Air flight falling from the sky.

A telegram from the National Search and Rescue Agency to the air force has requested assistance with the search.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest and biggest airlines, flying to dozens of domestic and international destinations.

In 2013, one of its Boeing 737-800 jets missed the runway while landing on the resort island of Bali, crashing into the sea without causing any fatalities among the 108 people on board.
