Here’s an idea to help sitters (and maybe pet owners) who find themselves with a few days gap between sits or have just had a late cancellation.
Would it be possible to have a page that sitters can post their last minute availability on? We are full time sitters and even with our best organisation we sometimes find we have a gap of a few days between sits. Or there is a last minute cancellation and we are frantically looking for a replacement sit. Or, has happened this time, our next sit has decided to go away a couple of days later.
It would be simple, post the profile, put the dates that you are available and what area you want to sit in. Then pet owners could browse the posts if they fancied a last minute short break, deciding on the dates they would go away by the sitters availability. They would be certain that they could get a sitter and the sitter would have a couple of days with some more fantastic animals. I’d call that a win win situation.
