About this sitter

We have had rescue dogs, cats, and a few chickens but find ourselves in the next phase of life with an empty nest and the chance to travel. Eduardo works remotely and Cynthia owns her own business so we can be location-flexible. We need only a reliable internet connection to work. Eduardo is a native Spanish speaker. Cynthia's Spanish is functional. We like to walk, swim and bike in the country but also love urban life with great restaurants and convenient public transportation. Either way, we like to be near something fun to do outdoors (water for swimming, trails for hiking or nice parks for walking and running). We may be available most any time but we love to be away from Austin in the summers (when it is too hot at home).

Why they want to house sit

We enjoy getting our dog and cat "fix" by pet sitting. We have cared for many four-legged family members over the years. Our last two dogs were both 12 years old when they came to us (one had been mistreated so badly she could not stand to be pet but would head butt us gently to show her love). Our cat, Posey, came to us when she was 19 years old. We did not set out to adopt only elders, we love dogs and cats of all ages, it is just how it worked out. We found when doing house exchanges, we preferred to stay in the homes that came with a dog or cat to love.

Their experience

We have stayed with many pets in their homes over the years. We are also experienced home exchangers through another site.

What can they bring to the assignment

We like to send daily "action shots" or photos of our pet friends in their natural habitat. We are accustomed to adapting ourselves to the pet's way (some need to sleep in our bed, some prefer to drink only running tap water, some like to go to the dog park really early in the morning, some need to eat only certain human foods, etc).

Testimonials

Worry-free house sit

Cynthia and Eduardo are responsible, competent, lovely people who sat for our Buddy cat in our Santa Fe NM home for 2 weeks in August 2022. We had the pleasure of meeting them in person in advance of our trip, as they were already in Santa Fe on a previous sit. It was a relief be able to go off into the wilderness with no electronic connections to the world, knowing our home and cat were in good hands, and to return to a clean and cared-for environment. We'd love to have them back again.

Great house and dog sitters!

Cynthia and Edwardo stayed at our home and took great care of our home and our dog. They were easy to communicate with, very prompt in their communication, and also kept in touch during the time we were away. The house was kept very tidy. Our dog loved all the walks he got and the neighborhood adventures they took him on. I would highly recommend them as sitters without any reservations.

Reliable pet LOVERS who can handle unexpected problems. RECOMMENDED.

I recommend Cynthia (& Eduardo!) without reserve, would be glad to have them back any time. My highest praise: They let me get away and focus on my adult kids, without feeling pulled backward by distractions or worry. A DRAMA FREE house sit. Cynthia and her husband Eduardo stayed at my rural Mexican casita approximately 2.5 weeks and cared for 2 dogs, 2 cats and yard/house plants. Never got to meet them; my travel schedule was tight and I flew out on the plane they arrived on. I left them a (battered) car, truck, kayaks and my home to use and care for. Found them all in same or even better condition when I returned. On arrival, their plane was delayed causing first night arrangements to be changed completely. They rolled with the unique local circumstances and didn't need help to navigate the situation. I REALLY appreciated that. Some folks can't cope with the unexpected, but they took it all in stride. Neighbors/friends later told me in different ways that they were impressed by Cynthia & Eduardo's poise, besides the positive, friendly attitudes. While gone I received a steady stream of updates, texts and pics of my pets. I was a more indifferent correspondent - but their updates didn't 'lag' just because I did. C & E handled the shenanigans my dog Pinto got up to (gone AWOL, looking for me in our old neighborhood the first few days) without panicking. What could I do, a thousand miles away, but stress & worry over something like that? They HANDLED the situation without scaring me, and that's priceless. Remember the old corporate maxim “Don't bring me problems, bring me solutions”. Yes please. Was very pleased at the state of my house upon returning - in some respects better than was left them, as I tend toward disorganization and was in an utter panic on the day I left. Apart from that, I felt bad for C & E because weather was unseasonably cold while they were here – not normal at all – but they never complained or let on if they were disappointed. They were mature, capable, thoughtful, openly affectionate to my cherished pets and VERY clean and organized. I feel extremely fortunate to have connected with them on this site. Thank you both so VERY much for care beyond reproach. Let me know if you ever have an interest in coming back to the area. I'll be off camping around Baja with Pinto & Jack next spring!
