You know you’re a house-sitter when you see a painting of a dog in one chair, and a girl in the other, and think ‘oh no, how sad’. Mary Cassatt’s girl does look a bit fed up. One of the perks of house-sitting – there’s always someone to share the sofa!
Some let you drink your first cuppa quietly.
Others perch stylishly on the edge.
Some want to hold hands.
Others take up as much space as they’re able.
Some have no dignity at all.
But when you’re sitting six dogs and five cats you better sit down quick and stay put.
