Cat sitting: stay with feline friends around the world

Did you know that your love of cats can take you places? With owners around the world looking for a pet lover like you to care for their cat, pet sitting could see you make special memories with feline friends, near and far away.

What is a cat sitter?

A cat sitter is a kind and caring person who keeps kitties safe at home while their owners are away. Some people may offer cat sitting services in their own house, but TrustedHousesitters members always cat sit in an owner’s home. That’s because our pet-loving community is here to help people travel more while keeping pets safe in their happy place — their own home.

In-house cat sitting is a wonderful way to stay in new places while offering cats pet care that makes them feel truly content. If the thought of keeping a cat company while staying somewhere new makes you want to purr, then perhaps you could be a cat sitter...

Discover cat sitting stories

Wondering what it’s like to be a cat sitter? Reading stories from real life members is a great way to find out. From a solo sitter who says it has changed her life to a pet-loving family of four who can’t think of a better way to travel, TrustedHousesitters is full of happy tales.

“Whilst sitting, I’ve had the most extraordinary experiences in communities that I’d not have done otherwise. I've found that house/pet sitting offers me the opportunity to become acquainted with a place and its people in unique and authentic ways.”

“We like traveling and living like locals, we like caring for animals, and we enjoy the responsibilities our family takes on as caretakers. We also appreciate the fact that we are helping someone else out who may be in a jam and just wants to make sure those things they hold precious are safe. Imagine what we’d be missing out on if we had never applied for a house sit?”
