Outgoing couple (Don and Cathy), recently retired professionals looking for new adventures. We live by simple fundamental beliefs, we feel obliged to respect your home the same as our own, to treat your pets as family members and to honor our commitments and that is how we live our lives.
My wife and I (Cathy and Don) are recently retired professionals. We use house-sitting as a means of exploring and experiencing new places. Based out of our Rye, CO lodge (Thecraftsmanlodge ) we look forward to more Rocky mountain house sits with a variety of animals.
We have sat for and fostered numerous dogs over the last ten years as well as having dogs and cats of our own. We have sat for aged cat with medical issues, young very active cats that we love to play with, a variety of dogs that if possible we will take with us on hikes, horses, donkeys and assorted other creatures. We are also listed on and housesittersofAmerica and where we have additional references for various sits. I am very handy in home maintenance as we have completely refurbished two homes (Hawaii and Florida) in 2005 and then again in 2014 when we moved to Florida. We have made repairs at the home owners requests in the past and have handled weather emergencies, acute pet issues and owner vehicle issues without a miscue. Simply put we respect your property and pets as if they were our own.
Past sits include Germany, France, US states of Colorado, North Carolina, Arizona, Florida, Washington, New Mexico and Oregon. Current volunteerism includes Historicorps and Volunteers of Colorado, both eco based organizations.
