>>> I am currently in Virginia until March 31, 2016. <<<
I am a highly experienced house sitter and offer my services for your vacant home for both short and long-term house sitting engagements.
Don't let the profile address of Alpine, Texas, fool you! My stuff lives in a storage unit there. I myself travel all over the country - visiting family, friends, and of course, house and pet sitting! So I am flexible and easily travel to different locations.
With house sitting experience since the 1980x, I have looked after a wide range of properties, including:
- small homes - large homes - homes with landscape care - homes with lots of outbuildings - small ranches
I have experience in minor home repairs, such as replacing door knobs and dead bolts, replacing toilet floats, replacing faucet washers, replacing screens on doors, etc.
As a house sitter, I have cared for house plants, performed basic yard work (mowed and watered lawns, maintained yard plants and flowers), cleaned and maintained swimming pools, and maintained a show-ready clean house for houses that are on the market.
My pet-sitting preference is cats and kittens, although I have experience sitting a wide range of animals, fish and fowl.
One of my regular clients has had a regularly changing combination of indoor cats, dogs, and horses.
I have cared for sick and injured pets, including emergency and routine veterinary visits, administered medicines (including insulin shots), changed dressings, and other appropriate treatments.
I am a cheerful, responsible, single, mature, non-smoking, quiet, self-employed professional woman with no vices -- other than chocolate! I am a published author, Internet Marketing consultant, web designer, and graphic designer. With my profession, I will add sense of security because I can work from home. I am usually in the house both day and night. I promise to value your home, your lands, and your precious pets.
I would provide a "lived-in" appearance to your vacant home. I would be delighted to hear from you.
