Last Minute Sits - New Category

There have been several conversations and suggestions about having a space in the forum to provide assistance when owner members need help to fill a last minute house sit - one that is listed on the main TrustedHousesitters website.

We’ve taken this onboard, and as a trial we’ve created a new category where you’ll find the guidelines of how to promote your last minute sit to house sitters in the forum.

A last minute sit is defined as a housesit that is due to start within 7 days. These are automatically labelled “last minute” on the listings pages on the TrustedHousesitters website.*

If you find yourself at this topic and have a last minute sit, please head over to post your requirements in this new category, following the guidelines to keep a level of consistency that makes posts easy to read, manage and moderate.

Here’s a link to the category

The “Last Minute Sit” category is only for use by THS members - if you haven’t yet paid your subscription and need help with joining, please reach out to one of the forum team, or contact membership services at

We hope you find this a useful addition to the forum.

All the best,
Vanessa and the forum team
