"housesitting"

In Urban Princess Dictionary on July 24, 2007 at 1:42 pm

people always say…”i have to house sit this weekend”, or “i’m housesitting for so-and-so this weekend so i can’t do this-or-that”. i’ve always wondered, as has NF, what exactly is “housesitting”…why does it prevent people from plans. and furthermore…why don’t people just get timer lights and an alarm?

i have finally found the answer to this.

these people aren’t housesitting. they are PETsitting. it seems the homeowners have pets there and they need people at their home to care for their pet by letting them in and out, feeding, brushing, smooching, walking, whatever they require.

so if you guys could all clear up the confusion the confusion for the rest of the world, and just call it what it is: “petsitting”, that would be fabulous!
