Default Weekend Trip?

Hey all, so this weekend I just found out that I am going to my family's cottage. It's about just over an hour drive from where I live. I'll be going from Friday evening to Sunday night.

So I was wondering if it would be okay to bring Smol? Or should I just find someone to watch him?

I have a small-ish cage that I'd use, and obviously take the necessary precautions to keep him warm during the drive.

So really, my question is which would be more stressful on him? The longer drive, but staying with me in a different place? Or going somewhere closer, but being with a stranger in a strange place? Or I could get somebody to drop by and check on him, but he'd be alone all day otherwise.

Thoughts?

Well, I know how much my budgies don't like to be driven around so I always prefer to minimize that, especially when it's so freezing cold. You are not going very far and only for the weekend so I think the best option is to leave him home with plenty of food and heat and have someone to check on him.

For such a short trip, I'd take him if it were me.

When I visit my sister (a 7 1/2 hour drive one way) I take my lovebird, Peachy, with me.
Peachy is bonded very closely to me. I know he wouldn't do well with just my husband to give him food, water and clean his cage while I'm away.

The other birds all have one another, so having someone care for them while I'm away isn't such a big deal.

I believe because Smol is used to being with you, he'd be much happier if you include him in your little get-away.

Best wishes!

Yes that's what I was thinking, thank you!
