Types of Animals on our Pet Sitting Jobs
What Kind of Animals can You Expect?
When you search for your house sits, you will be surprised on what kind of animals are out there that people will want you to watch. Of course when you are reading their ad, that should be the time that you make your decision on whether you want to tackle some strange beast. Here are some of the Types of Animals on our Pet Sitting Jobs.
Alpacas in Italy
When applying for this house sit in Rassina, Italy, we were mesmerized by the fact that this woman had Alpacas. Could we pull this off? How difficult would it be? Actually, they were very curious but yet shy creatures. When we entered their paddock, they would come running over very curious as to who we were. But, they would shy away from being touched. There was one that had been “doctored” quite a bit from having his eye removed. He was used to people and loved to be petted unlike the other three. As far as feeding them, the home owner had quite the routine. Along with Hay, I was to cut up some vegetables in small pieces along with some “Alpaca food”. No problems at all!

We have come across quite a few chickens
When in the country, expect to take care of quite a bit of chickens. They are not a bother at all. Fresh water and food everyday and that is it! Besides, will probably get some fresh eggs out of the deal! Out of our eighteen house sits, we have had three homes with chickens. Did not have any problems with any of them and got lots of free eggs!
Now we are Pet Sitting a “House Rabbit”
Never thought this one would happen, Saffron lives in the house. The owner has a large pen in the kitchen. She often lets the rabbit out to “stretch her legs”. Seems like Saffron is having a bit of a problem making it to her litter box so we have her in the pen most of the time. She is a sweet tempered little thing and we have enjoyed her. Just one of the many Types of Animals on our Pet Sitting Jobs

Never Say Never!
You never know what you might find when looking for a house sit ad. Just make sure you are comfortable with what is required of you before you take the sit. For example, I was leery of the Alpacas but once I spoke to the home owner. I realized that this was something I could do and would enjoy!
