I grew up on a farm caring for chickens, rabbits, pigs, ducks, geese, and other animals. We always had cats and dogs. I did a one month work exchange on an organic farm and helped with the feeding and care of a dozen baby kid goats. Currently, I am housesitting and caring for 2 cats in Victoria BC
62, Self employed
Currently in Ontario, and available for sits after Christmas for most of the winter.
I was born and raised on a farm and have cared for a variety of animals all my life. My last pet was a cat of 18 years, and at this time, I am not acquiring another pet so I can travel more.
A large component of my business has been in property management, and I am well versed in caring for all kinds of homes; rural, suburban, city, remote, off grid and others.
I am a very clean, quiet nonsmoker and non substance user. I have had to provide criminal record, background and Vulnerable Sector checks for various work and volunteer positions
Past sits on Vancouver Island include:
1. Looking after a home and cat with medical needs intermittently throughout the year while their owner was away.
2.. Caring for a home and extensive gardens, and a cat and fish for close to 2 weeks.
3. Spending a month caring for a house, indoor plants and lawn maintenance.
I also did over a month long sit on a 250 acre farm in Ontario, looking after a very active German Shepherd and ferret.
I have also looked after others' pets and properties for short term and extended periods, including acting as relief manager for various tourist accommodation businesses.
I have reactivated my account on Trusted Housesitters with 5 star reviews from housesits and Airbnb stays.
