I think MMH is brilliant. ( Sitter)
I joined in 2009, when I was 67 and did my first house/cat sit nr Toronto, that Spring. I had a month there, and was so lucky; the house owners were a lovely couple and the cats very sweet. I was able to visit not just Toronto, using the excellent public transport, but also made a trip to Niagara Falls, complete with helicopter trip over the Falls, and boat trip beneath them. I still keep in touch with the house owners. I also went to Tucson Arizona, and spent 3 months in Australia, fitting a months travelling and visiting family and friends, between house sitting. My last sit was in a lovely Oxfordshire cottage with a variety of animals. I was 'between cats' at the time, but then got my own cat which of course restricted my travels. I did keep my membership going for some years, thinking I may just do one more, (love looking down the list of possibilities) before I really am too old (now late 70s), but of course the pandemic put paid to that. Although I'm still fit and healthy, I think many home owners would think twice about entrusting their house/animals to an 'oldie'. So.. very reluctantly, and with some wonderful memories (including a strange one, if you remember the scammer 'James Backlord'?!), I am going to let my membership expire. Many thank yous MMH, long may you continue.
Well done and many thanks ( Owner)
