After a crazy few days, including a snap lockdown back home, I was pretty keen to start my house and cat sit in Sydney.
A lot of people have asked me how they can get started as a house and pet sitter, and it’s really not that complicated.
I don’t think anyone plans to visit Darwin during the summer, but I decided to brave the humidity when I accepted a house and cat sit commencing mid-December.
I was fortunate enough to spend about three weeks house and cat sitting in the US earlier this year before COVID-19 wreaked havoc on all our lives.
House and cat sitting opportunities are few and far between right now. Even local ones. And it’s more competitive than ever.
I arrived at Clare’s Brooklyn apartment after my bus from Baltimore was not only 45 minutes late, but made four stops along the highway because the engine was overheating.
