How pet owners save money with HouseSit Match

JOLLY GOOD: Teresa with Casper after rescue SOURCE: Courtesy of Teresa Krelle

TERESA is semi-retired and since moving to Spain she has rescued cats found abandoned in her local area.

One of the seven cats living with her is called Casper. Last year he disappeared for a time as some strays do. Eventually, he returned a little injured but after some care he was soon back to his usual self.

She joined HouseSitMatch as a homeowner to find housesitters to care for her cats. Teresa says the service offers her great value for money and a reassurance that someone is at home caring for property and her beloved pets. Last year Teresa had five short trips away totalling 25 days in the year. If Teresa had used the professional services of a cattery or a catsitter the expenses would add up:

For 25 days of holiday in 2018

Cattery for 7 six cats for 5 weeks of travel (Min cost = Eur 10 / day / cat) = Euro 2,450

Professional sitter for 7 cats for 5 weeks of travel ( Min cost = Eur 30 / day ) = Euro 1050

HouseSitMatch costs for 25 days of holiday

Cost of housesitters to care for pets = Euro  00.00 / Free

Registration on a housesitting platform = £79 / Euro 87per year (Premium membership)
