I'm a biomedical consultant, working remotely and available in California to care for your home and pets. I enjoy a change of scenery and the companionship of pets while I work and currently have none of my own. Taking walks, giving belly rubs and pettings are welcome reasons to take breaks from work!
I've cared for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, chickens, and fish - young and old, shy and sociable - with a wide variety of needs, behaviors and personalities! I've completed 80 sits in the past few years, arranged privately and over multiple house/petsitting s. A growing percent are "repeat" sits, and I love it when pets remember and greet me with trust and affection! I also have a successful track record of "split" sits , i.e., when I'm not available for an owner's full date range, I work with them and another sitter they've chosen to provide continuous coverage for pets.
I'm very privacy and security conscious, a non-smoker, and a clean-freak in my own home (wear only slippers indoors). Would do the same in yours. I prefer sits in very clean homes (e.g., as though prepared for a temporary rental guest).
I prioritize sits where owners and I recognize mutual expectations, responsibilities, and benefit. Because I work remotely while caring for pets, I prioritize sits in homes with high-speed (25 mbps) WiFi.
In addition to caring for your pets, I'm happy to collect mail, water plants, and take out trash. I enjoy building trust and offering plenty of affection to pets and I'm glad that my track record providing care to them and their home allows owners peace of mind when they're away! If a responsible, clean, pet-friendly partner sounds like a good fit with your travel plans, I look forward to speaking with you!
