We are a happily married, retired couple from the United States willing to travel anywhere in the world!
In mid 2016 my husband and I retired. Our children moved away and took all the beloved pets (with our consent of course!) and now we plan to slow travel.
After a lifetime of having pets we would love to combine the caring and nurturing of pets and looking after a home while living our dream of slow travel.
Why we want to house sit
We were fortunate to be able to retire early. Our dream now is to slow travel in such a way that we are immersed in the culture of the visited countries/communities.
Due to traveling we will not be able to keep pets of our own. Housesitting for us will be a perfect fit, combining our love of animals with travel, meeting new people and experiencing new and diverse communities.
What we bring to the assignment / Relevant experience:
My wife had the great, good fortune to grow up on a farm. She had many cats and several dogs throughout those years and she treasured and cared for each one. She had responsibility for chickens too.
Growing up on a farm instilled a lifelong sense of commitment and responsibility for the care of a home and property, and nurturing of animals.
Later, after marriage and babies, we added pets to our family. During a 19-year time span we had many pets including 2 dogs, many cats, a rabbit and some mice.
We have owned 2 different homes and 2 condos during our marriage. We are very dependable and aware of the necessity of properly looking after your home. We have a very strong sense of duty and will always go the extra mile in caring for your pets and your home.
