Hello! I am a teacher, having just returned to Ottawa for the school year to see a group of beloved students off to their high school adventure and close the doors on a unique gem of an educational program. I had relocated to Salt Spring island to live a more sustainable life style, close to the land, where I will be returning next summer. I have been missing home (family from Montreal, Ottawa valley to Tremblant) and housesitting (and/or petsitting!) is a perfect way to do this and an opportunity to give and receive :)
I have informally house and petsat in the Laurentians over several winters. I am physically strong, responsible and clean. I am also an animal lover, and have done wildlife rescue and helped with stray cat adoption and neutering programs, and fostering and socializing feral kittens and cats for adoption. This is the first time in my life without animals of "my own".
