You may have had cats yourself, and know cats that demand a playmate. Well Talisker is one such cat. His owners find petsitters to care for him at home and then leave for their holidays.

What the unsuspecting catsitters don’t realise is quite how demanding this intelligent feline can be. Challenging and fun Talisker will always need new petsitters.

Our housesitting and petsitting network can help petowners meet great checked petsitters, and secure care for their pets, for free, no matter where they are!

If you are planning a trip later this year, register now to find petsitters in time. Even if it’s just a short trip, you’ll know that sometimes you just have to leave pets at home. Young and senior pets in particular benefit from staying in their own home, so they can follow their routines undisturbed. Let us help.
