As a retired professional gentleman(R.N., Psychotherapist, American Red Cross mental health specialist), I can provide the time and attention needed for your time away from your home and special furry friends. I have been "adopted" by cats & dogs all my life-they just seem to know how to find me. They tend to just move in as they know I am an easy touch.

I have completed 25 sits with great pups and kitties.  I can attach contact information for all my excellent references for you to contact at your convenience.  I am also a member in good standing in the House Sitting Academy of experienced and knowledgeable house and pet sitters.

I am a responsible, conscientious, practical, easy going homebody type. I am an active outdoor person and love to hike and run with active dogs.  Of course, lap cats are very welcome. I am fluent in all cat & dog languages and dialects.

My greatest strength is providing a safe, secure and worry free time away from your home and much loved cats & dogs. I provide update  , FaceTime, phone and visits from your special friends while you are away-I understand you may worry and miss them.

While I may have had an excellent career in the mental health field, some of my life's greatest satisfactions have come through my volunteer experiences: 37 years as an adaptive(handicapped) ski instructor and my many(25) American Red Cross deployments to national disasters and the great volunteers I worked with. I bring these life skills and experiences with me when I become your housesitter and caretaker of your valued special pals.

I would be appreciate and honored to be considered for your housesitter needs.

We can visit via , FaceTime, phone, Messenger, Duo at your convenience for any and all questions/concerns.
