I agree it would be unwise to take him on the road trip at this time. Is there anyone you trust to be a house/pet sitter for you? I have done this the past few years for my pets. I LOVE it. My pets get to stay home. No change in environment or routine. Someone is there all night. Just a thought.
I'm feeding him 3x a day because he is underweight. I do the same amount of kibble as you.
Like I said before, I am new to the area and don't know 1 person here yet. I don't think I feel comfortable letting a stranger stay in my home yet.
