"It is with sadness that I have to resign from Homesitters as a homesitter, but due to *circumstances* it is not possible for me to carry on being a sitter. I just want to thank you all for the time I have been with you for all the help and support you gave me while I was employed by you. The staff have always been very friendly keeping in touch and support whenever needed. You are a great company to work for and I wish you all the best for the future. Thank you"
Mrs P, Kent, homesitter from September 2008 to July 2016

"Last week of our three week sit. Found a mouse in the kitchen last night, badgers have torn up the lawn, electricity keeps cutting out and the decorators have washed out their brushes in an upstairs sink which has caused an overflow of white liquid to settle on the outside patio. But so far this morning I've seen a muntjac, green woodpecker and two foxes feeding. The ups and downs of home-sitting ...."

"I’m currently on a sit in idyllic rural Oxfordshire. When I retired I needed to find part time employment, work that was varied, interesting and at a time and hours to suit. I also like dogs, having had 2 myself at one stage. Working for Homesitters enables me to meet different people, care for their pets and home whist they are away. It is a responsible position and a trusted one, made all the more easier with the support and advice that Homesitters Head Office give. It is reassuring, when on a sit, to know that help and support is there, just a phone call away, 24hrs a day, every day. The occasional phone call from Head Office checking that everything is ok whilst I’m homesitting is also appreciated. I stay in some very nice properties and get to look after a variety of pets in some idyllic locations. Home and pet sitting gives me the option and flexibility to choose when and where I work, at a time to suit myself, and it gives me a position of responsibility and trust. I would certainly recommend working for Homesitters Ltd to anyone who is retired and looking for part time work."
Mr R U, Wiltshire, homesitter since October 2014

"Home and pet sitting is really fun but it is also purposeful. It provides a real break from the routine and a chance to get fit walking the dogs. We can do it as much or as little as we like, combining all our interests together and the animals are the best part of all."
Mr and Mrs S, West Sussex, homesitters since January 2012

"We have looked after many different breeds of dogs now which has been fascinating – we love playing with dogs. We’ve also looked after race horses, emus and even a pig that lived in the kitchen that we had to tuck up in a blanket before bed. We’ve really had some great experiences"
Mr and Mrs C, Gloucestershire, homesitters since January 2003

"When carrying out assignments for Homesitters, I have a sense of adventure in finding the clients location. Once there discovering new walks and footpaths never travelled before, with the bonus of having dogs in my keep, romping along with me is very satisfying experience indeed!"
Mr R H, Kent, homesitter since February 1997
