Has anyone used a house sitter and would be prepared to be interviewed?

I am writing an article for French Property News about house exchanging and house sitting. I’m looking for someone who has used house sitters, especially for looking after pets, and would be prepared to be interviewed as a case study for the article. It would cover: how you went about it, what your experience was, any tips for others thinking of using housesitters.

As always it’s on a tight deadline - 15th Sept! - so early responses would be greatly appreciated.

Please either leave a comment here and I’ll get back to you or email me on the site here.

Many thanks.
