About this sitter

My brothers and I always had dogs, rabbits, fish, & birds, growing up. As a young man, after school, on weekends, and over the summer, I worked on a farm owned by the publishers of a magazine all about cats, caring for 8-10 pedigreed cats, mixing their food and feeding them, as well as cleaning their cattery. Also feeding and caring for outdoor cats, donkeys and other farm animals. When my daughter was young, we had cats for her and she still has a Maine Coon (Merlin) that she has had for a long time, since he was 2 weeks old. I watched over and snuggled with him when they traveled.

As for caring for your home and property. Over the years I have owned homes, new and old, and rented a few, and so, by experience, have developed a "do-it-yourself" ability for miner repairs. Having been on my own for many years I know, quite well, how to keep a home clean and tidy.

Also of note, I am a non-smoking world traveler, and possess an International Drivers Permit for autos and motorcycles, certified boat operator, with a love of fishing, boating, dancing, yoga, caring for pets and meeting new people.

Why they want to house sit

Currently doing geneology research of my European ancestors. Meeting new friends, caring for animals, and visiting wonderful places. I started traveling long ago with a trip to Vietnam. Since then I traveled with my church family and with other friends to over 70 countries, as many as 4 or 5 a year. Many Cruises and land tours visiting museums, cathedrals, mosques, churches, villages, towns and cities. Home sitting is a way to continue living all over the world.

Their experience

I have always loved and cared for animals. My interests have always been the use of wind and solar for power, so living with and maintaining such equipment would be a pleasure. The environment, human health and freedom are my main concerns. As an ordained elder of the Presbyterian Church I believe we are commanded to care for one another and all His creation.

What can they bring to the assignment

Comfortable with being alone, traveling, staying in places that are remote, are appreciated, as are large busy cities. I enjoy the outdoors, in the garden, or walking the countryside. And I can stay inside too, cuddeling and caring for your pets very easily, since my work is online as a voice recording business that I have had for years and only requires about 30 minutes a day, but not even everyday.

Testimonials

House sitting in Winnipeg

I highly recommend George as a house sitter. Not only did he do a great job at looking after my two cats, he was also friendly and kind. He kept in touch with me while I was away and even left the house in better shape than he found it by doing things like tidying up the garden rather than just watering the plants as requested. George also used his time here to get to know Winnipeg. Since Winnipeg's Folklorama (multicultural festival) was going on while he was here, we took the time to go to one of the Pavilions. I can't speak for George, but I had a great time. If you are looking for a house sitter, George is a great choice.

Superb House Sitter

We were so happy that George was able to house sit for us this summer. It is hard trusting your house and pets to strangers but we knew from the moment we first spoke with George that he was going to be reliable and trustworthy. George is a wonderful person very friendly and social and easy to get to know. He always has a story to tell. George followed all our instructions for minding the house and tending to the garden. He gave lots of love and attention to our pets while we were gone. We definitely recommend him, he’s an all round great guy and excellent housesitter.
