Hello from Dublin (have car, will travel)

Hello to everyone from Ireland! I am a German who has lived here in this wonderful country for 10 years. I have just completed my first house sit with two lovely cats, and miss them already. This web site really feels like it was made for me! I work from home and I have a car (wouldn’t drive it further than the UK though).
Animals I have cared for so far include cats, dogs, budgies, hens, goats, guinea pigs, horses and fish. I am always open to meeting new types of animals as well. For example, I know that turtoises can be really affectionate as a friend of mine used to own one.
I really look forward to meeting lots of lovely pets and their owners.

@andrealovesanimals, welcome to Trusted Housesitters and to the Community Forum. Sounds like you have a great deal of experience you can bring to our owners. You will find it is a great place to share stories of your house sits and get great info from other members. We look forward to seeing some of your adventures posted here!


Welcome to the TrustedHouseSitters community @andrealovesanimals !!! That is awesome you were able to sit a variety of fun pets. I bet you have some exciting stories to share. I also heard that tortoises can be very affectionate, and lucky me, I get to housesit my first one next month. I am looking forward to it. We can’t wait to hear about all the other adorable animals you’ll get to sit.


Budgies!!! We love (and have owned) budgies. It’s always great to hear them called budgies from non-Australians (hate that they are called parakeets). As our first budgie used to say “budgie budgie budgie”! (Like our Australian call “Aussie Aussie Aussie…oi oi oi”)


How fun!! Where will you sit the turtoise, if that’s not a nosy question?


Crookie, I loved reading your post! I’ll actually be minding a super cute budgie here in Dublin starting next week. And how lovely to read from someone in Australia. It’s a country close to my heart. I was there once in 2004, and hope to go back one day.


Not nosy at all :slight_smile: I will be sitting the tortoise in Los Angeles, California. I can’t wait!
