I have finally joined my husband in retirement!!! I found Housecarers several years ago and created a profile while we were renting a condo and had no pets. I am updating this profile, as we have reentered homeownership and adopted two cats. We are still very much interested in using Housecarers to both find available housesits and find sitters to come to our home while we are away. Our first experience with Housecarers was after our local housesitting arrangement ended, and we had already booked a 5 week trip to Key West. I was panicked and nervous about whether we could find suitable arrangements. The response to our ad was overwhelming, and had to turn away several very enthusiastic applicants. The couple we used was amazing! They loved our home and we could provide interested parties with their information to verify that our home and our cats are well kept, to give you confidence that we would give your home and pets the same care while you are away.

Our dream in retirement is to visit all 50 states, and there are many we still have to cross off our list. We would love to stay in a home that needs someone to give your cat or dog love and attention. We don't have grandkids yet, so we tend to shower our canine and feline "grandpets" with the love we would give to a child!!! We also have experience with fish (betta) We do not have any experience with barn type animals, so would not be comfortable accepting those types of housesits.

We are non-smokers, so we would only consider homes that are free of smoke.

We hope for many opportunities to come our way through Housecarers !
