We are a married, healthy, fit couple, both non smokers and are very keen gardeners. We own a home on five acres in Oregon and lived there for twenty five years. We love animals and have cared for many through the years, including horses, a goat, dogs, snakes and many cats and birds. We care for animals in the same way we cared for our children Presently we temporairly reside in southern California where I am developing a ceramics department for the community college here. We are also here to help care for elderly parents We are keen to housesit in many different locations. Long term house sits are great! We have our summers and holidays free. We have excellent personal references and look forward to hearing from you.
