​Give Your Cat A Staycation They’ll Love When You Travel in 2017

Posted by

You’ll never have to pay for kennels again

Polly is a moggie who just loves lazing in the sun. She follows its warmth around the house each day and whether on table tops or in discarded shoe boxes you’ll find she’s always laid wherever the warm embrace of the light falls.

Whatever the weather Polly also enjoys a daily constitutional around the garden with her sister Penny thank to a flexible cat containment solution . With a perimeter to prowl and birds to flush from within shrubbery, they make the most of the opportunity to exercise their feline instincts.

Angela and David rescued Polly and Penny four years ago when they first moved to London, and although they’d had a troubled start in life they soon settled into their new home and swiftly became part of the family. So much so that for two years after adopting Polly and Penny, Angela and David chose not to travel abroad on holiday as they couldn’t bear the idea of leaving the pair in kennels.

Then they discovered TrustedHousesitters.

While research has shown that nearly 1 in 3 pet owners cannot travel as often as they’d like to because they cannot find the right pet care (with some also saying they feel guilty about leaving their pets behind), finding a verified pet sitter provides the perfect solution for pet owners planning a getaway.

A caring house and pet sitting community, through TrustedHousesitters cat owners like Angela and David are able to connect with verified and trustworthy sitters who are willing to offer free pet care in exchange for free accommodation when they travel.

Joining the community and connecting with sitter Hilary, a fine-art photographer who travels frequently from her base in Canada, Polly and Penny recently enjoyed three weeks of extra tummy rubs from a new playmate who brought them a feather fishing rod toy.

For Angela and David, knowing that pet lover Hilary was taking care of their beloved moggies meant that they could travel with the peace of mind that their cats were happy at home with a pet lover to keep them company.

For Polly and Penny, the fact that their daily routine wasn’t upended meant that they didn’t become stressed when their owner’s left, and quickly adjusted to their new career. Equally, for Hilary the opportunity to live like a local in the UK and spend time with two gorgeous cats, whilst living rent free in a beautiful part of the country, meant that she could make connections with like-minded people and enjoy a more meaningful escape.

How can you keep your pets happy at home whilst you travel? Find your ideal sitter through TrustedHousesitters and enjoy the peace of mind that your furry family members are enjoying the company of a pet lover just like you.
