About this sitter

So lovely to meet you! We're a husband and wife writing team in our late thirties who’ve recently retired from being global expats to write full-time. Having lived in over 20 locations around the world, (and having patted many a beastie along the way) we've realized how much we miss being able to have pets, which is why house-sitting suits us perfectly.

Georgina is a former academic who decided writing romantic comedy was a much more enjoyable way to spend her time, while Tony is an engineer with eighteen year’s experience of troubleshooting for multinational companies around the world from Scotland to Saudi Arabia.

Georgina grew up in the Australian Outback and is an old hand at looking after almost every breed of dog, cat and barnyard critter, including cows, pigs, horses, goats, sheep and chickens. She’s also has a fondness for fish, Guinea pigs, rabbits and other small, furry creatures. Tony is possibly half cat. It’s yet to be confirmed, but he has been known to ignore all humans in his vicinity in favour of making a new feline friend.

Georgina also loves caring for house plants and we both frequently potter about in the garden when trying to solve tricky writing problems.

We both write from home, so you’ll have the peace-of-mind in knowing your pets will have company throughout the day.

We’ve owned properties in the past and are old-hands in trouble-shooting unexpected situations, so you can rest assured that we will do our utmost to solve any problems that come our way while keeping you updated at all times.

We completely understand that you want the peace of mind in knowing your home and pets are being taken care of by responsible, mature people and we can't wait to get to know you and your pets better.

Why they want to house sit

House-sitting allows us to continue traveling the world, researching for our novels, while still enjoying the company of animals. And since our books always feature a furry side-kick, we’re always looking for new inspiration!

We’re also keen walkers and hikers and tend to get most of our ideas while wandering about, so taking your dog for regular walks would be our pleasure.

Their experience

In addition to rehabilitating and fostering street cats around the world, we’ve looked after various dogs and cats over the years from taking care of a small curious desert cat in Saudi Arabia, to minding a rather mischievous Jack Russell terrier in Scotland.

Georgina is also experienced with all types of barnyard animals, including hand-reared calves and lambs, milking cows, goats, horses, pigs and chickens just to name a few. She has particularly fond memories of once taking care of a duck that was convinced it was a chicken.

Having owned properties of our own, we’re also well-versed in what it takes to keep a garden in good order.

What can they bring to the assignment

We've got a policy of leaving any place we stay in better shape than it was than when we arrived. We're both calm, cheerful people who embrace any time spent with animals.

We feature pets prominently in our books and are always looking for inspiration for new critter sidekicks!

Having lived in lived in so many places and having had so many experiences, we're well equipped at calmly handing any issues that may arise with your pets or your house. We'll do our utmost to meet all your requirements and will, of course, be contactable at all times while we're taking care of your beloved pets and property.
