I think many of us have certainly ever left a sit with a teary eye. The HO was super lovely, and the pets have grown so close to your heart that you would have loved to take them with you.
But how far would you really go if something unexpected happened? The HO dies unexpectedly, gets sick, or has to give up their pets entirely or temporarily for other personal reasons. I’m mainly talking about life-changing situations where they might need help. So how far would you go?
Is there an HO and his pets that immediately comes to your mind?
Have you perhaps thought about it in advance? According to “For HO xxx and pet yyy, I would immediately …”
Would you invest your own money to help? Even with the chance of not getting it back. Of course only if is possible for you.
Would you pick up pets even if it was very far away and costly?
Generally sacrifice your time, free time or vacation for it?
Would you take these pets? Maybe forever or at least until you find them a new forever home.
How do you think about it? Is housesitting just a job and when it’s over it’s over. Or is there much more passion, sacrifice and love for the pets in it than some HO maybe think?
