Work trips, can i deduct petsitting?

I am required to travel for work (not something in the job description or fine print when I was hired).  My company reimburses for flight, hotel, most meals, etc., but I have dogs at home that for several reasons need someone to stay with them.  Is any part of this deductible?  The company didn't ask me to have pets, but they also weren't having me travel when I was hired and it's not cheap!

No. There is no deduction for pet-sitting, and there is no deduction for any pet expenses.
