S'il vous plaît pardonnez mon français. (FYI: Some photos submitted to show my sense of humour.)
My name is Michael, and I'd love to host your pets the next time you go out of town. I'm an American from Nouvelle Orléans very actively seeking pet/house sitting assignments for 2019!
Available 22 May - 2 September, and 1 October until the end of time. :-)
My has a calendar showing my assignment availability.
I'm a roving pet, home, plant caretaker, ESL teacher, genealogist-in-training, and full time University student.
My page: MichaelsPetAndHomeCare (it is the same as my professional site has a goodly amount of information on me as well.
I am available for any length of time, though longer assignments are preferable. Not picky.
I have a long history of caring for a wide variety of animals, including my own, as well as those entrusted to me by friends and family. I actually do this full time, professionally.
When I lost my two pugs it wrecked me, emotionally, but it also gave me the time to think about what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I have found that caring for and loving animals is possibly the best self-healing that we as humans can experience. It's fun, it's rewarding, and it's the best therapy anyone could have. Animals are genuinely amazing creatures. I adore them.
In addition to changing my professional direction, I've also been lucky enough to go back to my university studies full-time. The program I'm in allows me to study from any location, so all I really require is the Internet. I also tutor Chinese students every day as well.
What you would expect from me: Respect, trust, kindness, honesty -- they are so very important when doing this.
About My Services I offer: Overnight Walking/Playing Administering Medication
Loving your babies and caring for your property and plants as though they were my own.
I'm comfortable and highly experienced taking care of a vast array of animals, including, but not limited to: Dogs, Cats, Goats, Horses, Fish, among others. :-)
"Are you experienced?" I am. I'm a professional house sitter, as well as animal caretaker. I can provide a significant list of personal, professional and employer references.
"Why do you want to housesit?" Experience life! Travel, eat, drink coffee, take countless photos of dubious quality.
I want to do something unusual. I'm a very meticulous caretaker, so I am very good with doing exactly this. Also have an increasing wanderlust that seems to be taking over as I get older.
"What can you bring to the assignment?" I'm genuine, I love trying new things and going places I've never been. I know more about coffee than anyone you'll ever meet. I am a Coffee Master! A great cook, too!
I'm crime free and I have a perfect driving record (which I *do* have paperwork for).
I have many Professional & Personal references available. Check out what my clients had to say:
"An outstanding house caring job!Michael took outstanding care of our house, pets, plants and 15 y.o. son while we were away for 10 days. We came back to to a pristine house (even our messy teen had cleaned up his room under Michael's great influence!), everything was taken care of so well. Cherry on the cake, Michael made a wonderful dinner for us the evening when we got back!!! We felt so spoiled and privileged for Michael's excellent service! We highly recommend Michael for any house sitting challenge and will be contacting him again." --J & S, Simsbury, Connecticut
"I am very pleased to be able to recommend Michael as a house and pet sitter without reservation. I've known Michael for nearly fifteen years, and he and I were housemates for five of those years. During that time, I had three dogs and a cat and traveled a great deal. Michael was frequently in charge of my animals and, at that time, two of his own. He did a masterful job of keeping the house clean and running, while at the same time taking excellent care of all the pets. I never had a moment's worry about either the house or the pets with him in charge!
If you, like me, think of your pets as family members, you couldn't pick a better sitter. Michael loves animals and the feeling is reciprocated from everything I've seen. If you decide to go with him, your furry family members will definitely have a great new friend! In addition, you will have lots of photos of your fur babies to keep you up-to-date on how they are doing while you are away.
Please feel free to let me know if there are any specific areas about which you have questions. I'm more than happy to answer any questions about Michael's capability as a sitter." --Katherine L.
"Michael has taken care of our home and our cats several times over the past few years. He is an excellent caretaker and we are having him come back for another sit in May of I would have had him come other times but he was booked, which shows how popular a sitter he is. I highly recommend him as someone to care for your home and pets." -- Shirley B
