If you're looking for someone to care for your home and pets, I may very well be a good fit for that! I'm a writer by trade, and because I work online, I'm based all over the world, and I travel it often. Getting to you isn't even a detail; consider me practically on the doorstep! On the bright side it means I can housesit almost anywhere, anytime, but unfortunately, because I travel nearly the whole year, I don't keep pets of my own at home, so I love to enjoy them and spoil them when I'm out in the world looking after somoene else's home. I take that responsibility as seriously as leaving someone to do the same in my own home. Also, it's much better for me as a writer to have a dog there to take me from beneath the laptop and get me out on walks for fresh air, play, and exercise, or a cat who demands attention away from the keyboard!
I have over ten years experience housesitting. I come with excellent references and a lifetime spent loving a wide array of animals from cats, dogs, and chickens to birds, fish, and goats, plus many more! My dossier reads like the roll call at a zoo! I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs. I'm reliable, responsible, honest, well-educated, very clean, and I'm a good communicator. Really I'm a tea-drinking bookish type.
My primary requirement when considering a property to safeguard is that Internet is available so I can work. I am well-versed in driving on either side of a car on either side of a road. I welcome background checks if requested. I'm happy to be flexible with special needs, requests, or schedules.
If I were looking for someone to watch over my fur babies, I would want someone like me; someone who would genuinely care for them as if they'd always known and loved them, and who would really look after my home while I was away.
I consider the people I housesit for to be clients of mine, and I do request a video call prior to accepting a housesit. It's best when we can meet at least via video before we meet in person.
I'm happy to answer any questions and offer you whatever information you might need. Please feel free to contact me!
