About this sitter

I am a quiet older woman with a writing business I run from a laptop. So I spend a lot of time at home, and I break up work sessions by gardening and caring for my animals -- a dog and a cat. (My animals don't travel with me, I have arrangements for their care when I'm gone.)

In other words, I'm highly domestic. Your animals won't feel abandoned. I'll be there keeping them company. I'm also reasonably athletic and I enjoy long walks with dogs.

I've signed up on this website because the weather in my hometown (Palm Desert) is too hot for walking or gardening from June to October. So I spend summers visiting family and traveling to places with great weather. I love housesitting because it lets me explore the world while continuing the quiet and focused lifestyle that suits my writing schedule.

I'm fanatically fond of animals -- dogs, cats, llamas, birds, anything reasonably tame and friendly.

I prefer urban house-sits, as I live in a boring resort town and enjoy cultural stimulation and new people. You'll be glad to know I'm well past the party stage of life, so I won't be bringing strangers into your home.

I'm also great at gardening, with a sensitivity to plants and an urge (more like a compulsion) to keep them "happy" and reveal their highest aesthetic possibilities.

I doubt you could find a better placeholder for your home and pets during your vacation. I hope you hear from you.
