I would love to be your pet’s “grandma” while you travel.   Recently retired, I love adventure but I'm not in a hurry.  I like to travel like a local - stroll around the neighborhood, fix my own meals, water the plants and read with a cat on my lap.   Depending on the location and assignment, I might bring my sewing machine and construct quilts while I’m there (if you don’t mind).  (I can also mend and do bookkeeping if you have those needs.) 

As a responsible homeowner myself I will keep the property tidy and can trouble shoot problems should any arise.  I’m a cat person (currently with an 8 yr old DSH), but also fondly had a dog named Fuzzy years ago.  Your family will be my family while I am visiting at your place.

My goals are local and international.  If visiting the Pacific NW I would bring my car. In the past I have volunteered with non-profit organizations in Central America and Africa.  Hablo espanol.   I’d love 2-3 month house sits where I can take in local culture, nature, history and culinary delights at my own pace.  My bucket list includes New Zealand, Ireland, Great Britian, France, Spain, to name a few specific locations.  I look forward to meeting you and your pets.

My elderly cat misses Jackie so much, she is now spending more time in the bedroom that Jackie slept. Probably waiting for her to return? Jackie made me a beautiful guilted table runner while she sewed her guilted blankets. She brought her sewing machine to keep busy while I was away for two weeks. 
My house was wonderfully clean and my plants were well taken care of too. I didn't worrry about a thing while I was away. I would highly recommend her and if she would house and cat sit again I would love it. Thanks Jackie
