We are experienced pet and home owners and have loved and taken good care of our pets, cottage and home.
Our pets have been well loved and have included four cats, a dog, a rabbit, hamsters and fresh water tropical fish. Three of our cats, our dog, and one of the hamsters were rescue animals.
We know that you will be worried about leaving your home and your pets with strangers, because we would also feel this way. We want you to know that we will treat your home and pets with the same care and respect that we treated our own. We are conscientious and caring people.
We have done three housesits and enjoyed all of them. The people that we have sat for have been good to us and their pets have been fun to take care of. The first housesit was in December 2014/January 2015 for three weeks, when we took care of a friendly and loving dog. We apartment sat and cared for two indoor cats for two weeks in March 2015. The cats had personality and even the unfriendly one came to us for company and the very occasional pat. The latest housesit was for one month in April 2016, when we cared for an outgoing and affectionate dog.
We will be happy to provide you with references.
We are a professional couple in our early sixties who are lucky enough to be retired early. We have three wonderful grown children and have been married thirty-eight years. We are active, non-smokers who love hiking, skiing, sightseeing, gardening, reading and spending time with our children, grandchildren and friends.
My work background has been as a CPA-Chartered Accountant. My husband worked in the computer industry and subsequently in the investment business where he was an Officer and Director.
We sold our home that we owned for twenty-four years, but still own our cottage (twenty-six years). We spend our summers at the cottage and travel and ski during the rest of the year.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you think that you might like us to housesit for you.
