I'm a watercolor artist and writer who keeps a travel journal full of sketches and paintings of the places I have traveled to and the people I have met along the way. I would love to care for your pets and home while you are away. I am very neat and organized, have lived abroad in remote locations, and have taken care of up to six dogs at one time. I love dogs and cats. Have no problem dispensing medication to your loved ones (pets that is) and taking care of them as if they were my own I grew up in the country and don't mind a bit of solitude. I am an avid gardener and love plants and nature. I am also a bit handy with power tools, trouble shooting, and emergency situations. I operated a school/camp for high school students in a remote location and out of necessity became familiar with solar, plumbing, electrical, medical, and auto emergencies. I am a non-smoker, can drive on the right or left, and I have a happy, open outlook on life. I love experiencing new cultures and soaking up the everyday life of new cities and countries. Email me and we'll have a chat about what you need in a house and pet companion. References provided. Short notice can work for me too.
