Christmas sitting

You will be asked to remove the link to your listing, as links aren’t allowed on the forum. You can edit the post so that people have the dates and location of your sit, so they can find it without a link.

I know your area very well, and it’s fabulous! My brother and his family used to live on Page, between Lyon and Central, and I visited often. Good luck finding someone.

Hi @mbuggy I agree there have been a lot of holidays sits in the Bay area. And many of them still have 0-3 applications. If you have already pending applications I would recommend you select someone sooner rather than later.

Your pup looks so adorable and your location is very attractive.
You do mention that it is best for a single person. Most people don’t want to be alone for both Christmas and New Years, so perhaps opening it up to couples would give you better luck. Also, you mention that they would have to park on the street. How hard is it to find parking or could you research other options for them, if they have a car. You should also list how long your pup can be left alone, so that they can explore the city. Many sitters have made plans for their holidays already, but you still have time. You may be able to locate someone who has friends or relatives in SF, but prefers to have their own space when visiting. Also, it looks like you have at least 4 applicants. You should start contacting them ASAP. Good luck!

Hi @mbuggy welcome to our community forum, we have removed your listing link @mbuggy as this is an open forum and we don’t have links to listings or sitter profiles posted, the website really is the best place to find sitters and sits.

Thank you @Lassie @Southernsitter and @BunnyCat for your help and guidance … there will be other members with advice and suggestions I’m sure and one piece of advice would be to search sitters in N CA and proactively invite to stay with Ollie, and you can also boost your listing.

I have moved your post to this Christmas sitting topic. Ollie is adorable and you are in a great location there is still time to find your sitters and there are new members joining every day who may not have THS reviews but then even the most experienced of us started that way.

You’ll find our community helpful and supportive, our Membership Services team are available with help and advice also.

Hello @jumilli3004 … Welcome to the forum and we hope you enjoy connecting with other members, and that you find a sitter for your cats! We’ve moved your Christmas sit here from the last minute category as it’s not yet within the 7 day limit, and removed the link as per the forum guidelines. I’ve replaced the link with text that will allow people to find you on the website :slight_smile: All the best.

They are precious and I am sorry I am not available to mind them this season and trust you will find someone. I have favorited you for future needs as I will be in your area come Spring/Summer and yes Fall :heart:

Dear Angela

What do you mean by details of my listing ?

Not absolutely sure what is meant here.

Maybe bern out of UK too long !

Kind regards


Hi Marion @marjar12345 I have been trying to find your listing on the website, unfortunately it is not coming up when searching the Swiss listings.

What do you mean listing??

I have lived here for 35yrs what exactly are you looking for so I can help you find it?!

Hello! We are looking for a sitter to look after our gentle cat, Ripley, and house sit for us over Christmas. We’ve listed our dates as one day at the moment but we can be flexible if it’s easier to stay for longer! We’re based in Kent, a short walk to the Thames and the centre of town, near 3 different woodlands, and a short drive to the coast. The house is warm and will be decorated for Christmas. If you’re interested or have any questions let me know :blush:

I was contacted by an owner for a month-long sit at St-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques (France). It’s too long for me.
If anyone is interested you can easily find the sit with the name of the town, it is a cute house with 2 cats and fish.
The region is very beautiful, and the winter is not very cold.
I advised them to communicate on the forum.

Just giving a heads up to all searching for sitters over the silly (aka christmas) season, perhaps please take note where we may be on the planet prior to sending sit invites…People must know the border situation in NZ or over in Oz (Western Australia)

I’ve received 4 this week from the northern hemisphere :thinking:. I’ve saved them in the hopes to apply for future sits.

Just a fri morning thought.

Hello. We are looking for a sitter to look after our 2 cats and 2 dogs for these dates, or part of. We’re just outside the village of Wadhurst, East Sussex (near the Kent border and South of Tunbridge Wells). It’s a nice area. Please get in touch if you’re interested. Thank you.

Hello @rebeccamarissasmith and welcome to the forum community! We’ve moved your Christmas sit to this post where all the other sit requests have also been listed of late, so hopefully more people will see it here. All the best :slight_smile:
