I am a freelance travel writer/photographer wanting to explore and experience places in Canada. In the past, I have driven across our beautiful country on limited vacations, mostly camping as I go. I had always travelled with my dog, Tessi, but she passed a couple of years ago. As I have craved seeing more, I headed west from my southern Ontario home last summer, housesitting and hanging out with dogs, cats and even fish along the way. I find it quite satisfying taking care of other people’s pets while watching over their homes. I have helped out friends in this way as well. I am a quiet person, social but not overly so. 

I can provide references. To add, I've been a school bus driver and have therefore had all the prerequisite police checks done. One of my jobs, as well, has been house cleaning and I have a great reputation for being honest, responsible and dependable from that. And, while house sitting, I always leave a home clean for the owners for when they return. 

I have tried to attach the Police Checks but for some reason I can't seem to get it to work so until I do please know that it is available upon request.

“ Excellent, Sociable Housesitter ”

Cheryl looked after our house, one cat, houseplants and outdoor plants for two weeks while we were away on vacation this past July. She did an excellent job and we feel you would be lucky to have her look after your home, plants and pets, all of which she would treat as her own.

Cheryl is friendly and willing to help and inspires confidence. She soon won over our shy and skittish cat, who was clearly very much at ease with her when we returned home. She fetched us from the airport on our return after we had changed our plans. She kept in close contact with us at all times and gave us regular status updates. We came home to a spotlessly clean house, a thriving cat and healthy plants.

We were delighted with her performance.

“ A Wonderful Choice for Your Home & Pets! ”

Cheryl was our house/pet sitter for three weeks in 2021. She did an excellent job caring for our cats and home, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy sitter. 

Communicating with Cheryl was prompt and easy both before and during our trip, and she made herself available to visit our home the day before we left. We returned home to a spotless house, thriving plants, and two happy, well-cared-for cats. 

Cheryl is dependable and treated our home and pets as if they were her own. I have no reservations recommending her services to anyone looking for peace of mind while they're away.
