I am a fifty-nine year old single woman, recently retired. I have travelled extensively, primarily solo, over the last 20 years. During my travels I have volunteered at various animal projects and shelters.
I have owned my home for almost 30 years, and I'm very house proud. I've had people housesit for me, and I have been fortunate to have had great experiences. I also own rental property, so I understand how important it is to find responsible people to take care of your space.
I'm quiet, clean, responsible and reliable, and really do care about animals. I recently lost my best friend --- an elderly Lab/Husky cross named Buddy, but do have many great memories of our long walks and mornings at the offleash dog park. I have also had cats (for 14 years) one of which was diabetic, requiring insulin injections twice daily. As a result, I have extensive experience giving medication, both injections and orally.
I love to read, walk, practice yoga, learn, garden, swim, cycle, kayak . . and I'm looking for places I can do some or all of those things -- in between dog walks and cat scratches!
I have a recent criminal records check, and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have. Now that I am retired I am hoping to experience even more of the world. Ideally that will include seeing more of Canada as well as escaping the cold Canadian prairie winter!
Thanks for considering me as a candidate to care for your pets and home.
