How do I go about becoming a small pet sitter?
A small pet sitter is a good way to have pets, but not own them. The best thing you can do is research about the animals you want to care for (rabbits, hamsters, rats and mice) and frequent some forums in your area about these pets. I know in the UK about 3 forums looking for Mice sitters etc. You need to make sure you know what to do with the animals and how to handle them and what they need and require, as you will be looking after someone’s loved ones no matter how small they are. You do not need a police check (for rabbits and smaller) but people will be insistent in visiting where you live to make sure it is suitable for their animals. I would not leave my pets with anyone who I thought was not suitable or knowledgeable with my animals.
