About this sitter

Hi there, we are Howard & Juliet, recently retired and looking to try something/somewhere new and exciting.

Why they want to house sit

We love our home, but also it is fun to go to new places and meet new people (and animals of course! )

Their experience

We have always had cats in the family but we have also cared for dogs, hens, sheep goats and a donkey!

What can they bring to the assignment

We have a cat of our own and understand how comforting it is to know that she is being well looked after by people we can trust while we are away. We are looking to provide similar reassurance for others when they are away from home.

Trusted Couple

Juliet and Howard were kind, caring and respectful towards our cats and house. The had great communication before and were easy to deal with. I would recommend them.

Juliet Burrage Howard Burrage

An absolute dream couple. They cared for my 6 dogs, took them to the Vet's immediately when required, and sent many updates and photos. My house was immaculate when I returned as was the patio and the large garden. I recommend them completely.

House and pet sitters Extraordinaire

Juliet and Howard were fantastic! This was our first time leaving the house and our 3 Maine Coon cats in someone else's care for so long [2 months]. I fear we are now spoiled for all others. The entire experience could not have been easier or had a more successful body of work. We sent the opportunity out and then Skyped with Juliet and Howard for an introductory meeting. Then we exchanged information and documents and communicated very successfully after that by Email and Text [my preferred way]. They made all their arrangements and kept in touch prior to arrival. While we were away they kept in contact and sent us pictures of the cats and our property and where they were visiting in the area. They even helped us on the arrangements to/from the airport both going and returning, which was a huge help as it's 90 minutes away. We gave them instructions on the house as well as suggestions on "what to see/do" as it was their first time in the area. They seemed to enjoy exploring. Any issues with the house that came up they handled or called us for help with the resolution. They told us about phone calls/messages that came in for us and as I arranged appointments for several service people or package deliveries, they made sure to be here to supervise or receive. My wife has been trying to get walking leashes on the 2 young kittens for a year with no success; they are not allowed loose outside on their own. Juliet managed to get the 2 of them to use a harness and leash for walking them outside. Juliet asked if she could try and then managed to do it! The house looked better than we keep it upon return. Both my wife and I could not be more pleased in the service we received from Juliet and Howard. We hope they will be more than house-sitters, that they will be friends of ours on-going. Wonderful people, wonderful job, wonderful experience. We would be more than comfortable having them sit again.
