Pet Sitting Experiences that Let you Travel the World

The purr-fect way to celebrate International Cat Day 

Australia is a nation of cat lovers and with International Cat Day just around the corner, there’s no better time to seek out a cute and cuddly companion to look after on your next holiday.

Cat sitting is growing in popularity in Australia, TrustedHousesitters saw a 19% increase in the number of available cat sits on its site between 2018 and 2019 and a 32% increase in the number of cats sits available worldwide.

International Cat Day is celebrated on Thursday 8 August and its aim is to help raise awareness for our feline friends and to learn about the ways we can continue to help and protect them.

To celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of the most adorable cats and their exceptional homes both here in Australia and overseas. Whether you’re after a trendy beachside pad in Sydney or a tropical escape in The Whitsundays, a sensational city escape in London or a relaxing retreat in New Zealand, these beautiful homes will guarantee Aussie travellers have an exceptional experience in the company of some seriously cute and cuddly new friends. 


Cronulla, NSW - A luxury waterfront apartment looking after “Leo” the Persian cat.

Whitsundays, QLD  - Beautiful Whitsundays escape to Airlie beach minding kittens “Fyfie” and Nikki.

Alfold Crossways, UK Cosy country retreat in small village taking care of two Bengals, “Butler” and “Queenie”. 

London, UK - London escape in the leafy suburbs close to city, keeping 7-month old “Mynyx” and “Tigris” company.


Kai Iwi, NZ - Quirky beach cottage stay caring for four rescue cats, “Socky”, “Shmoke”, “Mojo” and “Bijoux”.


By engaging a pet sitter cats can stay in the comfort of their own home when their owner travels, reducing the stress and anxiety of moving them away from their normal environment.

By signing up for a yearly membership of just $99, TrustedHousesitters members have unprecedented access to thousands of pet and house sits all around the world, all year round including these fabulously furry felines.

Alana, Brenda and their seven-year old son Chase LOVE cats and travel the world for free by cat sitting. Chase is the reason they want to travel, to let him experience what other parts of the world have to offer.

Alana and Brenda summed up their personal experience of cat sitting via the TrustedHousesitters platform by saying “cats are one of the easiest animals to care for during house sits. Some need plenty of space, some love to jump up and snuggle when you are, and I have even known some to roll over for a belly rub! There are no ambiguities with cats... They dictate the rules of engagement. This makes them an ideal house sitting partner.”
