I live in paradise in Clearwater, Florida. My husband, who pet sat with me, passed away in July, so I'm solo now. I love people, animals, making new friends, traveling and photography. Since I travel so often I don't have any pets myself, so pet sitting is how I can spend time with great critters.
I try to respect what you want for you pet(s) while you are away and follow your rules and schedules. It is nice to keep on schedule as it help pets feel more comfortble. Lots of cuddles as even when they are in their own home with someone besides their family it can be hard on them. Fun to see how they do become attached after a few hours or days -- depending on the pet. Always makes me feel so good when we've made the connection and they are happy.
I belong to Friendship Force International and am the Membership Chairman. This is a great group now that I am a solo traveler with wonderful goals -- world peace. I've traveled by myself for months at a time and have no problems or worries doing this. I am just careful and aware. I do volunteer work for Pineallas County which I enjoy. I have wonderful friends all over the world and feel so blessed.
I've written a blog since 2012, most of the stories are of my travels. I like to pet sit because it gives me some quiet time to catch up my writing. I do tend to keep very busy at home, I'm called the Energizer Bunny. You can find out about me and my travels on my page: //goingtoseeitall.blogspot
As I said, I do pride myself on following your instructions, keeping your pet(s) on the schedule you request which helps them feel that all is well. I will feed your pets when you want, what you want and will respect your pets needs and your desires. Some pets want to cuddle and I love to do that, some pets don't need as much -- so I always give pets time to adjust to me and usually they end up being very close and attached. Pets allowed in bed are always welcome. Since I don't have pets now it is fun to have a critter to snuggle with.
I will respect your home and you will come home and find it as neat as you left it. I will treat your home as if it were my own. My husband and I have taken care of million dollar homes, and stayed in some of the greatest areas in the United States, Mexico and England.
I also will keep in good contact with you. Some people want a note that all is OK, and other people want a daily with pictures on the status. I'm a great communicator so you won't be left guessing what's going on at home. I can communicate with you as often as you'd like.
I enjoy pet sitting because it gives me the opportunity to stay in a new place for a little extra time and really get to know the area. My usual day is to get up and take care of pets. Get moving mid-morning, go siteseeing in the area, a walk, museum, or? Then lunch out and then I head for home for the evening. So I'm not running around all the time and can spend quality time with the kids.
Thanks for your consideration. I will do a great job for you, promise.
