|By pet sitters, do you mean just friends/relatives coming over, or professional pet sitters? And by "not doing well", do you mean you're scared of people coming into your house?
See, normally I was terrified of strangers, but not my petsitter. When she came over for the initial consult, I went to her immediately!! That' show Mommy knew she was the right choice, because typically I'd hide for at least an hour whenever someone came over. I was known to be a very skittish kitty, but I did much better with my sitter.
She was an animal keeper at Disney's Animal Kingdom and truly has a way with animals. Her husband told my Mommy that when the petsitter worked at AK, she'd know when an animal was sick or scared before any other human did.
Professionals generally have some kind of animal-care experience, like working at vet's offices. And they will do things your humans may not feel comfortable asking a friend to do for free, such as taking you to the vet if you're sick, changing litterboxes, staying around to play with you, etc. Mine even brings in the mail
If you're interested, you can find a sitter in your area at petsit.com.
