I have also attached a thread that you should find helpful.
Do you have any photos of Coco Chanel you can share on here? We would love to see

You’ve come to a great place to find lots of crazy animal lovers including those of us that love cats! (currently sitting for 6 indoor cats!).
I did a sit in Denmark last year. Near Copenhagen. What a wonderful country and people although some of the drink and food prices in Copenhagen made my eyes water even for a person based in London!
I did a sit on the edge of Birkerod. I really liked the town. It reminded me of the large village in the UK I grew up in. The only issue was that I was there during the crazy heat wave that swept Europe and it reached 32c while there. As you know Danish homes are built to keep heat in not out!
@Samox24 I am in North Lincolnshire. “With a little help from my friends” I can get by… or something like that (wasn’t that what the Beatles sang?) Oh, I have zero ties to this area at all.
@richten1 I grew up not far from Birkerød. Well, we like the heat inside our houses Don’t forget Scandinavian countries in the past were rather cold. Norway and Sweden still are wen you go far enough up north.
Hi @69CandC This is entirely a personal decision. Of course, yes you can just have sitters take care of Coco Chanel for you and therefore you would join up as a homeowner. However, if you are wanting to travel yourself and house sit, as well as have sitters in to look after Coco Chanel for you, you would then need to sign up on a combined membership of both homeowner and sitter.
It really will come down to what you are hoping to achieve on here, either just having sitters in to take care of Coco Chanel for you or if you do want to travel and house sit yourself then you would need to sign up for both. Or of course you could just sign up as a sitter if you have friends or family that can take care of Coco Chanel for you whilst you are away.
But yes to answer your question you can certainly just sign up as a homeowner and have sitters sit for you. I hope this helps.
Thank you so much for taking time to help me understand this.
So far I will remain a member, without choosing a plan due to my situation. When I know where I land and it’s more permament, then I will chose.
Welcome, I’m in my third year of taking care of houses, I started in 2021, 2022 and now I’m just starting 2023. Welcome, this place is excellent for communication between owners and animal lovers (my preference is cats). Maybe one day I can make house sitting in yours and with Coco Chanel.
Greetings from Barcelona.
