What is house sitting?

Simply put, house sitting is the practice whereby a home owner, leaving their house for a period of time, entrusts it to one or more "house sitters", who by a mutual agreement are entitled to live there rent-free in exchange for assuming responsibilities such as taking care of the homeowner's pets, performing general maintenance etc.

From our members

I am so grateful for MMH ( Sitter)

I have a sick kitty who needs daily medication (and lots of love and play). I would not be able to leave him to go on vacation if I did not have someone staying at my house, as he needs to be encouraged to eat and drink throughout the day. Since joining this site I have had two outstanding cat sitters. Metta, my kitty, enjoyed being with both of them. He looked relaxed and happy upon my return after both vacations. My first cat sitter, Georgina, was an extremely experienced cat sitter - it was obvious in the questions she asked and how she interacted with my cat. She texted and sent pix of my kitty daily, which was very reassuring, and left my home immaculate. My garden was also in better shape than when I had left. My second cat sitter, Stuart, was on his first assignment. He, too, was very reliable and it is clear that Metta was well taken care of. I would never be able to go on vacation if I had to leave my kitty with \"strangers\". But on this site I get a reliable platform to interact with potential cat sitters, get references and feel comfortable leaving my kitty and house in good hands.
