House Sitting Mishaps: An Emergency Vet Visit

Cat Cuddled Next to a Computer
[Cat cuddles are my fave]
House sitting is amazing. I’m obsessed with it. But it’s also a LOT of responsibility – you’re usually not just watching people’s homes, but also their pets. Pets are family, so you definitely want to be sure that Fido is taken care of properly.

So what happens when things go awry?

Let’s go back to the house sit I scored in Hamburg, Germany in August 2017. I just want to gush for a second – it was PERFECT. I still don’t really understand how it even happened – I genuinely think I somehow manifested it?

How exactly do I travel as much as I do and NOT spend $37334069584 a year on accommodation?

What exactly is house (and pet) sitting?

If people own pets, they’ll need someone to look after them when they go on their sunny vacay. That’s where I (you!) come in.

Occasionally, someone will post a sit where all you need to do is water their garden or get their mail, but I’d say 98% of the time they have pets.
