Hi my name is Debra and I live with my husband James in a small seaside town on the Greek Riviera near Athens with our two fur babies that like their humans to look after all their kitty needs - I was recommended the Trusted Housesitters site by a friend, so we looking forward to getting to know more fur baby parents around the world as well as having our own looked after too
@WebraDebra welcome to the forum! I wanted to take a peak at your profile since you are in such a beautiful area, but alas, it has not populated yet! Can’t wait to check it out! Greece is on our very near bucket list as we have watched so many youtube videos of nomad travelers who are enticing us with all the beauty Greece has to offer…and we love how the entire island is so inhabitated by furry kittens!

Hi @WebraDebra - Welcome to trusted housesitters! My husband is Greek and we will be in Athens from 24th October - 11th November - if you are interested in meeting up for a coffee one day let me know
Hi Debbie, I was recommended your site by a friend who has used it for a few years… it’s looking very positive so far and if everything goes to plan, could be a game changer allowing us the freedom to travel more knowing our fur babies are getting the very best of attention while we’re away - d;-)
Hi Colin, thank you for reaching out - we’re not quite in Athens, but happy to meet for coffee if he is down the Saronikos area - d;-)
Hi @WebraDebra. Welcome. This is strange as I’m currently catsitting 3 fur babies near Anavyssos! Having a great time. Never been in this part of the world before although I’ve been to a few Greek islands like Crete, Corfu and Rhodes. I was missing out!
Happy to meet for a coffee while I’m here (until the 4th November). I’m regularly going into Saronida. So not too far away.
@richten1 - sounds like a plan after the 26th! Beautiful area
Hi @WebraDebra. Perfect. Just let me know when and where we can chat cats and my experience of cat sitting!
And yes an amazingly beautiful area especially the coastline. Working my way along the beaches this week post my remote work day.
Todays beach swim!
