Hello from South London!

New to the forum, we’re a family of 2 adults, 1 child and 2 elderly cats. Interested in home swaps, and people who would like to stay in London.
Our gorgeous boy cat is diabetic, so anyone looking after him would have to be comfortable with giving him injections. I hope this isn’t too big an ask!!


A warm welcome to all your family, especially those 2 gorgeous cats! You’ll find many of us are comfortable with giving medications and injections, but it’s definitely something to make clear in your profile, and I would suggest having some good handover time so that you can teach and practice the routine together.

Our own experience has been that it’s always a different experience. We had a dog we gave injections to while eating … I swear he never once noticed :slight_smile: And a cat we had to wrap in a thick towel … at which point she became docile.

TrustedHousesitters doesn’t manage home swaps… there are platforms specifically set up for that process which I’m sure you’ll have found, but if you want trusted, caring, verified sitters you’ve come to the right place!

If you do need any help finalising your membership do reach out. Our team of moderators and helpful members are here to guide and advise if you have any questions. In addition, our membership services team are always available to support you.

In the meantime, enjoy the forum, and we hope to see your listing live soon … do you have a trip organised or are you still at the planning stage?

Best wishes, Vanessa and the forum team
