Hi from newbies in South Wales, UK

Hi everyone! My partner and I have been mulling over joining and finally took the plunge!

We have a whole menagerie of 3 dogs, 3 cats and 6 gerbils. All of which are rescues except for one of our cats and the dogs are Romanian ex-street dogs with their own quirky behaviours.

We are based in South Wales :wales: and are hoping we’ll soon find the right sitters for our dates posted!

Nice to meet you all!

Hello @iamplankton and welcome to TrustedHousesitters and to the Community Forum :wave:t2::slightly_smiling_face:

What adorable photos, thank you for sharing :dog::cat::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Wales is always lovely to visit any time of the year, I am sure you will get many great applicants :blush:

Hello @iamplankton

I am completely new here. I haven’t even signed up yet as pet parent, love that :heart_eyes: title, I have only visited north Wales, and I loved that, so I am sure the rest of wales is just as lovely.

Love the cat with blue eyes. :grin:

I only have a cat. I used to own a horse too. Not any more though.

I feel sure that you will find the right sitters for you.


Welcome @iamplankton,
I’m sure you’ll find a great animal loving sitter for your collection of amazing animals.
It’s been a while since I’ve been to Wales. A friend spent some of the nineties living in Cardiff. As a young 20 year old at the time I remember it being rather lively at night!
