|At 6 weeks old, he should still be fed more than once a day, and I don't believe he is old enough to be eating all dry yet, in the ideal world, he would not even be weaned yet.
Kittens are also little terrors on wheels, mol, their mission is to find something to get into, mol. Too much can happen, in between the pet sitter just coming once a day, and G forbid, he gets into trouble, its another 24 hrs before he gets any help.
My 2 kittens were 12 weeks old, and I went to a show, was gone Fri-Sun, came home to 2 sick kittens, as the pet sitter at the time, gave them adult food, instead of kitten food, and thats 12 weeks, not 6 weeks, and my sitter was there twice a day.
If you really have to go away, I would ask the pet sitter to come twice a day, and see if one or some of your friends, that you trust, or family members, would be willing to stop by a few times a day, to check on the kitten. Best of luck with whatever you decide.
