A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

House Sitting

Federica was wonderful! I have never had a pet sitter before so I was beyond anxious since the start. I was going to be away for four nights, and being my cat is a lockdown kitten, he has never had other human interaction asides myself and the vets. He’s also always been a bit sickish and despite being pure energy so he also needs to take medication, which also added to my stress of leaving him. But things went fabulous; she stayed overnight with my cat and he absolutely adored her, communication was great, she could give him his medication no bother and it was overall a huge positive experience. I don’t have family in this country so I don’t really have people to rely on with pet care, and seeing how lovely she was with my cat gave me a lot of peace of mind when leaving. I’m glad I met Federica because I’ll definitely be asking her back when Covid allows me to go somewhere. I cannot recommend highly enough.

This has been our first time using a pet sitter, and Connor was fantastic. The care that was shown to our kitten and older cat was amazing. Connor took the time to get to know each of them properly and understand their needs and personalities. It's clear how much he cares for animals in general and it was clear when we came back how well looked after the cats had been. He also took time to send us regular updates and pictures which were lovely to receive and also very reassuring. Connor was also a great house sitter too! I wouldn't hesitate to book Connor again.
