Hi from Westchester County, NY

Hi all. Cat fanatic here, who just joined THS as a homeowner but really love the concept of sitting as well. Single mum w. 2 kids who collected a pandemic kitty in 2020 and then adopted a beautiful tabby stray off the street.

Nice to “meet” you all.

Hi @bec and welcome to the forum and to TrustedHousesitters. You are not alone in having grown your family during the pandemic by welcoming a four-legged member of the family. It has certainly caused a growth in the number of sitters needed.

When you have your listing ready, you can share it on the forum by adding it to your forum profile. You may also want to take a look at this great blog post on how to create the perfect homeowner listing.

Hello @bec and welcome to this wonderful world. I’m sure you’ll be able to sit with your children as well as welcome Housesitters to your home. Despite having done a lot of travelling I’ve yet to go to NY! Maybe one day I’ll come and cat sit for you!
All the best!

Welcome, bec.
I had a very enjoyable sit last Christmas/New Year in Pleasantville with a dog, 2 cats and a snake. Sort of last minute as my booked sits in the UK were cancelled because of covid issues and I added the US sit about 2 weeks before it started.

Welcome to the TrustedHouseSitters community @bec !!! I too adopted a pandemic rescue pet, It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. He’s the most loving doggie. Congrats on your two new kitties, I would love to see pictures of your fur balls. Welcome again!

Wow. I see you are an MVP when it comes to pets. LOL. Pleasantville is about 15 mins from me. Very nice area.

That sounds great. I will keep you in mind in the future, Smiley :slight_smile:

Thanks Julie! Having once owned a purebred cat, I can definitely say that I prefer moggies – and rescuing one makes it even better!! Moonbeam is a 2yo huuuuge boy that I needed all my previous cats to train me to handle! He sheds white and ginger fur with aplomb everywhere, everyday. Lucy is a tabby female who adopted us last year :slight_smile:
