Early in my career I did a lot of housesitting, while in graduate school. More recently my wife and I have begun sitting internationally. We have always been a pet-loving family. When our chldren were young we had to limit the number of stray dogs and cats that they brought home. Pets are part of the family, and we treat your pets like family members. Sadly, we have lost a dog and a cat within the last two years. Eventually we will bring a dog and a cat home to be part of our family, but right now we want to travel, so we woul like to give love and affection to your pets.
