A big HELLO from your new Community Manager!

Hello everybody!

I just wanted to pop in and introduce myself.

My name is Jenny, and I’m your new Community Manager. I’ll be helping the team look after the Forum.

A few facts about me:

  • I’m 42 (and as Douglas Adams fans know, 42 is the meaning of life, the universe and everything!)

  • I was born and raised in Scotland, and live there still

  • I have an elderly black cat called Walter (see below for Walter at his spooky best) - he was a rescue and nobody knows his true age

  • My professional experience in Community Management spans a couple of years, but I’ve used online forums for over two decades

  • My hobbies include reading, live music, walking, and cooking

  • I’m new to the world of housesitting and can’t wait to learn all about it

Although this is my first post here, I’ve been lurking for a few days, and I’m really enjoying reading all of your thoughts and ideas about life, the universe, THS, and everything!

It’s amazing to have joined a community with so much heart and soul, and I am looking forward to getting to know it, and all of you.

Speak soon!



Welcome and congratulations on your new role , I hope you find the world of house/pet sitting to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining.


Thanks @Daisy999 - it’s genuinely lovely to be here. I’m so impressed by the wealth of knowledge here on the Forum!


Welcome Jenny! And hello to Walter.


Thanks @Katie :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Walter said “prrrrup” then dozed off again. He’s enjoying my heated pad now the weather’s a bit chilly here!


Welcome Jenny! We will all get to know each other a bit better soon! Happy moderating!


Thanks for the lovely welcome, @PVGemini :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Welcome @Jenny_V and Walter!


Thanks @Debbie :grinning: happy to be here!


Congrats Jenny and welcome! Walter looks like a gorgeous and absolute gentleman :heart_eyes:!!!


Welcome @Jenny_V in your new role as Community Manager. Walter is a real cutie. As you learn more about the sitting community you might find yourself in need of a sitter too!


@Jenny_V Welcome, and good luck in your new post. I’m in Scotland too.


Thanks so much @NadiaTHS - he’s SUCH a gentleman!

Thank you @temba - much appreciated! I’m looking to get my spare room done up in the next few months, so I have a comfy space for a sitter to stay!

Lovely to meet someone else in Scotland @Dace - I’m in the Scottish Borders - which area do you stay in?

Maybe TH should setup a section for members, like Nomador does, where homeowners make a welcome room available for fellow members for a day/night to stay between sits.

Welcome! Look forward to hearing from you in the Forum.

I’m in Ayrshire. I spent 3 months during covid between Melrose and Selkirk when my house was uninhabitable because of stalled house renovations. Lovely area!


Ayrshire is lovely! My parents used to take my sister and I up there for caravan holidays when we were kids!

I’m in Galashiels so I’m local to Melrose and Selkirk! It’s a really lovely area, we’re so lucky!

Welcome, @Jenny_V. :grin: I think the easiest (only?) way to learn about petsitting is to do it. So, I hope your first couple TH sits/hostings go well! Each sit is so unique. I love reading all the stories that people share here; even the “bad” ones are at least enlightening. And they’re all so real.
