Mimi is NOT a cat sitter!

I must have posted a comment somewhere on here about cat sitting (I've searched but can't for the life of me find anything) as I keep receiving PM's from people asking if I can look after their cat!

Now I did look after my friend's cat for 6 months when she had to go to America this year but that was a favour for a friend. I have no particular desire to have other people's moggies whom I've never met, come live with us like some mad old cat lady.

What is even more hilarious is people asking me to travel to various locations to stay with their puss as they want it to stay in its own environment.

For the record: I am not a cat sitter. I never was and never will be.

Thanks

Re: Mimi is NOT a cat sitter!

Let me clarify further. I am not a pet sitter, a farm animal sitter, a babysitter, a house sitter, I am not a sitter of anything other than sitting on my bum.
