How my pet-sitting side hustle netted me £500 in just one month

How my pet-sitting side hustle netted me £500 in just one month

Earlier this year I was telling a friend how much I miss my cat, Sam. I’d left Sam back home in Portugal and didn’t get to see her often. My friend told me that she’d applied to a cat-sitting app and I thought I’d give it a go since there are a lot of pet owners in leafy Chiswick.  

The result was surprising! 

I applied and within a week I was receiving dozens of requests for me to take care of dogs and cats.


I started out by doing cat-sitting in people’s homes and within a month I had applied to two more apps that allowed me to walk dogs and do pet day care as well.

This turned out to be a fantastic way to ease my home sickness, have lots of fun with animals and make some money at the same time! To my surprise, I was able to earn £500 in just one month and I had lots of fun in the process.

Living comfortably in London is not easy. We all want to have nice houses and live in nice neighborhoods. But most of the time, this comes with sacrifices!
