I'm a mature, responsible woman with 15 years of experience pet sitting and house sitting in California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington. I have excellent references and background checks available on request. I have cared for cats, dogs, birds, fish, horses, goats and chickens. I enjoy walking dogs, playing with kitties and caring for all animals. Pets love me and I love them. I will administer medications, bring in mail, water plants, care for your house and property and communicate with you by  text or phone.  I've been a professional organizer most of my adult life and now semi-retired. I am neat, clean, organized and responsible.  I don't smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs. I enjoy walks in nature, gardening, art museums, music, dance and spending time at the ocean/beach. Please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you and how I can best serve you!

Astara123 is dependable, flexible, pleasant, communicative, and able to deal with challenges such as making sure that Castor would eat his daily pill.  She left my condo clean. Also, I found the car I let her drive clean and full of gas. I could not ask for a better housesitter.

We put our home in Cherie's hands for 6 weeks, and were so happy we did. She tended my courtyard garden wonderfully. It was in its prime when we returned. Our house was immaculate. We have no pets, but I would bet she is a splendid pet sitter as she is courteous, mature, good-humored and warm. We would highly recommend Cherie and hope we have occasion to work with her in the future.

Cherie is a delightful person. She takes her house/pet sitting role very professionally. Communication was perfect -- it was like she knew I was wondering how things were going and then my Message ring on my phone told me there was a note from Cherie.

Cherie took care of my home during a particulary nasty time of year, with winter-like storms complete with wind and lots of rain. She took it all in stride, even during a period of time that a leak appeared in the living room ceiling!!

My clue as to how the sitter interacted with my two cats is how they behave after I come home, and this time they both were looking for Cherie, even sleeping the first night in her guest room. Purring cats speak volumes to an owner. Cherie is also a top notch groomer, and for long haired cats, that is saying something! 

I would recommend Cherie to anyone that needs someone that they can trust while they are away. For any length of time. She adapts quickly to her environment and has a knowledge born out of experience of just what to do.

My furkids also give paws up!!!
