Back in 2011, Kelvin was looking for someone to look after his house and cat, when he identified that there was a need for a better website, in order to help thousands of homeowners like himself. After searching the Internet, he couldn't find any websites that met his requirements. This was a light bulb moment for him.
Like many entrepreneurs, he is willing to take on challenges and try new things. Within a week, he put a website together, and called it "House Sitter Connect". Eventually, he found a house sitter to look after his house through his own website. Since then, Kelvin has been growing the website as one of his weekend projects. In Sept 2013, Kelvin's beloved cat, "Lucky", passed away at a cattery while he was away. He was not able to see his cat's last moment. He was very sad and decided to transform the side-project to an Australian company to promote pet sitting and house sitting. StayMe.com.au was born! Pet Sitting has many benefits for the pets. By using StayMe.com.au, he could encourage thousands of pet and home owners to use Pet sitters and house sitters instead.
