I joined HS because my neighbor introduced me to her HS sitter After I joined, I couldn’t find her sitter’s profile, so my neighbor gave me her number. The sit went well, but she starting calling asking if she could stay at my house for a couple of days between sitting job but she never contributed for her personal expenses. I spoke to my neighbor and the sitter, who was not a Trusted Housesitter, was also doing the same thing to her and her daughter. Obviously, I learned a valuable lesson AWAYS go thru the HS site. I have a new sitter coming this week and very optimistic.
