I’ve done 14 sits in 2022 :slight_smile:


Ooh, I love me some data!

Our year started on the 20th, but the numbers would be the same as we’re on our current sit until the 18th.

So for us it’s:
15 sits
2 countries (Australia & New Zealand)
184 nights
18 cats
3 dogs
1 rabbit
5 chickens
Handful of wild cockatoos
Outdoor fish


Ok! Looks like the numbers for the year, are impressive across the board! :heart_eyes:


I may or may not have made a list @Colin with some sort of tally :wink:


I think your impressive ‘year in numbers’ deserves a thread all of its own :heart:


Top 1% :wink:

We didn’t do a lot of sits this year as we went on five personal vacations - twice to Mexico, one to Cuba and cruised to Alaska and the Caribbean but just tallied up our sits:

We stayed in Canada for the sits

5 sits
6 cats
4 dogs
For a total of 41 nights . That was fun to look back on!


203 days sitting
In 6 countries
40 dogs (and fell in love with every single one)
6 cats
Numerous chickens
And 1 parrot.

This includes a repeat sit which wasn’t put through THS.

What a joy it’s been.


Oh what a great thread!- I’ve been meaning to tally up our 2022 numbers as its been a full on sitting year for us. So thanks for the prompt!
So…here goes!

41 Sits in 5 countries

  • Spain (1), Germany(3), Switzerland(1), UK (4 in winter +31 more on our 5 month summer housitting tour!) & Singapore (ongoing since 17th Dec)

301 Sitting days

43 dogs
26 cats
40+ chickens
6 rabbits
7 guinea pigs
1 hamster
2 fish tanks
2 sheep
1 horse
A herd of 50 deer! (Just kept an eye on them!)

Wow! Amazing to see- in numbers- what we got up to! The UK summer tour was a personal challenge to crank up our review status- just for fun!- we aimed to reach 50 by the end of summer & even exceeded our goal (currently on no.58!) But beyond that it has been an amazing experience housesitting all over the place, pretty much full time this year; being entrusted with so many amazing animals, a huge variety of homes- from flats to huge country mansions, meeting many lovely people, & having so many different, enriching, experiences (not all easy!!) Also-very important- having the satisfaction of knowing we gave all those 41 families the freedom to go off on all their various trips and adventures with complete peace of mind, knowing that everything was in capable hands! :pray::kissing_closed_eyes::pray:
