Home swap Q&A: look after my cat during an exchange?
Q: Will I find members willing to look after my cat during an exchange?
A: Many member are happy to look after pets while on an exchange (some will even consider it a plus!). However it is important when adding your home swap offer to clearly indicate that you have a cat that will need looking after and also mention this when discussing a swap with members. This will ensure that everyone knows what is being agreed and also avoid anyone with a cat allergy taking up the offer. It's a good idea to leave detailed instructions for your exchange partners e.g. Is the cat allowed outside? If you have a cat flap and your cat is outside when your guests arrive, leave them a photo - to make doubly sure they feed the right cat!
