Cecilia and Brad, married retired (University professor and GIS analyst), non-smoking couple from Arizona. We love dogs and cats and have lots of experience with both. Having begun to do this in 2016 we have cared for dogs, young and old, active and infirm. Cats of all types from Persians to Bengals, young and not-so-young.
We are avid readers, Cecilia writes, we like to watch great movies. If this leads you to think that we are "couch potatoes" we are defnitely not ... We are active, healthy, and good hikers. The non-smoking part helps to stay fit!
We love animals and believe strongly that they need attention, love and care not simply food and water.
We understand the need to stay communicated in today's world, so we will keep you pet owners informed of how things are going with your loved furry ones, home, and plants. We still own our home in Flagstaff, Arizona (gateway to the Grand Canyon). We have excellent references, and a "can-do" problem solving disposition. We have lived in the US, Mexico, France, Chile, and have had extended stays in Canada, French Polynesia, the Netherlands, Italy, the UK. We enjoy traveling and meeting people and pets ...
Be assured that we understand that your pets are your family too.
We can keep a home well maintained, and plants happy. We were hosts for 2 years in Flagstaff (our home of 20 years) with 100 + positive reviews from happy guests. We have been guests in North and South America always receiving 5 star reviews for being considerate, tidy and respectful of other's properties.
We are looking for a housesit either urban or rural for anywhere between 2 weeks and 6 months. Could even be longer than 6 months if everything falls into place. We can handle stairs well, enjoy rural life as well as city life. We own a vehicle in the US, and have even driven extensively in Mexico ...
We had our beloved Pearl (rescued cat, see her picture in the listing) for 13 years, lost her in 2016 to kidney failure and are still heartbroken. She was our soul mate.
