Thank you for taking the time to read our profile. Hopefully you'll choose us to look after your home and pets. If not, we hope you find exactly the right sitters for your circumstances - we're realistic enough to realise we won't be right for everyone!

We are travelling around the Southern States and will be looking for a house sit in Georgia and/or South Carolina. We're available from 17th April 2019  - just before Easter and including over the Easter period.

We're Steve and Karen and have completed several house sits in the UK and Europe, ranging from looking after one cat and a fish tank, to one with dogs, cats, 26 hens and a large vegetable garden.

We are both non-smokers and homeowners ourselves, so we appreciate how important it is to have trusted, caring people to look after your home and pets.

Having previously owned pets of all types we also understand you want the animal members of your family looked after exactly as you want and that's what we'll do! 

The bottom line is the care, safety and security of your home and pets. With this in mind we always insist on having details of house rules, communication options (contact numbers in emergency etc) and contingency plans (vet, house workmen etc). Hopefully none of these will be required, but we like to be prepared for your sake.

We have owned, in no particular order: cats, dog, terrapins, hamsters, budgies, cockatiel, chickens, tropical fish and rabbits. In the past Karen has worked in a cattery and over the last few years we have regularly looked after a friend's Pomeranian whilst they've been on holiday. Lastly, we have looked after dogs via the borrowmydoggy.

We've uploaded some personal references. We've deleted our referees address, phone numbers, from the documents, but they've very kindly said they'll happily speak to anyone who wants to check with them verbally. Just let us know, we'll contact them to make sure it's still ok, then give you their details.

In the past Karen has worked as a Teaching Assistant so had the relevant checks for this. Although they will probably have run out by now, they give an indication of character (that's if she can find them!)

We're both retired, so if you are considering us to housesit for you and want more proof of who we are, and that our profile is accurate, we can send more information or put you in touch with our referees.
