I'm a healthy, strong, and responsible single 68 year old woman. I am energetic and young at heart. I love animals and I've owned two houses, though not recently. Your home is special and unique. It is important that it is cared for in the way you want it to be...your things, your routines, your pets, your plants. I don't smoke or drink. I am reliable and I love animals. I am tidy and enjoy new places and people.
My first house-sit was a 3 month assignment in the remote of Brazil in the Highlands one of the poorest area in Brazil. My responsibility was running a Sitio (Homestead) There were 6 dogs, 10 cats and 3 parrots. I cared for and loved as well as the property.
