We are a couple in our mid fifties who love animals, traveling, gardening and nature. We are non smokers, quiet and love meeting new people and their animals.
As a couple who travels full-time, House Sitting enhances our travel by deepening our exploration of an area and helps us feel like locals and part of a community. We love being of service and helping people feel at ease when they are away knowing their pets, home and gardens are well cared for and tended to.
Janet: I love caring for animals and gardens. During our house sits, I enjoy reading with a cat on my lap, walking dogs exploring the neighborhood, getting up early to feed and turn out horses, let out the chickens and do whatever I can to make sure the animals we care for feel safe and loved.
A few years back, I owned a Pet and Farm Sitting Business for six years serving the Napa Sonoma Valley Area. I have over thirty years experience compassionately caring for and handling horses, donkeys, llamas, goats, chickens, dogs, cats and exotic birds along with pocket pets and various farm and exotic animals. I treat each animal with the respect and dignity they deserve as individuals. I have excellent references from my past pet sit clients.
Animals and Nature have been a big a part of my life since I was a child. Now in my fifties, my love and connection to animals and nature grows even deeper. Most recently, I was a Bistro Manager for a Senior Center. We prepared and served meals five days a week for at risk seniors. I love being of service to people and animals. I am a writer & poet. I am an avid reader enjoying both fiction and non-fiction authors. I love to cook and work in the garden.
I enjoy music of all genres especially live performances. I am an avid traveler and enjoy nature, caring for animals at our house sits and working in the garden.
