Hello - I'm 65, a competent mature quiet woman, friendly w neighbors, adaptable, capable re home issues, don't smoke/drugs or party. I'm highly attentive to your pets and their needs/schedules, happy to take mail in, care for plants etc. I work from home anyway, rarely in tourist mode, a reader, delighted to be in one place with pet(s). I own a home I’m well used to maintaining, cleaning and troubleshooting/fixing, being respectful of yours. As I wouldn't be bringing a car, anywhere walkable (particularly with dogs) is great otherwise I use public transit/Lyft (if there might be use of a car as previous sits for dog park, I'm a great driver/no accidents, driving 48years).
I work anywhere with internet (writer/editor/researcher) and as I age, I'm not keen to shovel snow my snow…I like changes of scenery; a different life, different city, adore cats and dogs equally, their differing personalities. I read a lot, like local newspapers; it's not likely I'd be sightseeing (been in CA many times). I always sleep on site, not out for more than a few hours, knowing that routines, attention and being there is what a pet needs for comfort in missing you.
Yes, besides I truly enjoy caring for pets - same fantastic dogs over years in California, other dogs, 2 Southern cats 8 weeks, neighbor's pets etc. some senior w meds, regulars in Ontario. I know what it means to take care of your pets as you would. Especially in CA, I conserve water, used to dealing w garbage/recycling, home issues, in emergencies level-headed and calm. I've had cats and fostered, have the patience and demeanor to be with, attentive to, take care of and play with pets as if they were my family, especially calm with rescues. I can bring my own chuck-it for balls if your dog likes chasing, also a never-fail cat's toy. Re your home, I'm old enough to know there's little chance someone will clean up after me so you'll find it as you left it (listening to jazz, enjoying wine is about as wild as I get). I’m happy to email/text reports and photos as often as you wish. A private/confidential person, I don't do social media, would never post pics or information about you/home/pets. I usually fly from Buffalo, have Nexus Trusted Traveller card.
I'm handy, reliable, kind, nice and easygoing - your pets' schedule is my schedule, e.g. walking dogs how many times you wish fine (yay exercise for me!). Being respectful and friendly to neighbors is natural. It's fine if your dogs/cats like to sleep on the bed (if you allow). I see some ads ask for no kids or other pets; it'd just be me. I have a police check/no criminal record, references, happy to talk to you by phone, videochat/Facetime and answer any questions. You can leave your pets and home in my care knowing they will be safe and loved.

I'm happy to report that Cynthia was available when I needed her in 2018 and I also will be using her again around the end of this year. I can't think of anything to add to my initial reference; except I forgot to mention she was here for at least 3 weeks each time she dog/house sat and she sent me frequent updates and photos while I was gone. This is my initial reference in 2017: I will have Cynthia house and/or dogsit for me anytime that I need help and she is available. She is very personable and outgoing, and, most importantly, my dogs loved her. Cynthia is very reliable and is capable of handling any problems that might arise. Everyone she met, whether in the neighborhood or at the dogpark, mentioned to me how much they liked her and how obvious it was that my dogs were well cared for. If you would like more details, I would happy to provide them.
