About this sitter

Photographer, writer, and educator. I volunteer as a way to give back and meet locals and enjoy sightseeing to learn the history of your area.

Why they want to house sit

NOTE: I was just notified a confirmed sits' family has health issues & has cancelled . I need 1 or more sits this Thur Sept 12-Oct 15, preferably in Colorado with a vehicle or nearby transit. Please let me know if you have an opening. Thank you!

Their experience

My first year, I had 4 long term sits in each section of Oregon. From there I traveled to New Mexico & Arizona & have 30+ sits many repeats from happy pet / homeowners to my credit.

Property: 1-40 acres, rural - city - out buildings (barn, green house, chicken coop, garage, workshops), privacy gates, HOA, and gated communities. Quick thinking saved property during high winds, rain, hail, snow, ice, and heat (pipes/crops/vehicles). 12+ states

Distance: driving 25 -75 miles one way and having limited connectivity requires organization & planning.

Owners vehicles: automatic, manual, hybrid, 4WD, AWD, cars, trucks, 9 & 15 passenger vans.

Equipment: Pellet and wood stoves, mowers, sprinkler & cameras, security systems, portable generators & more.

What can they bring to the assignment

A loving heart, green thumb, & conscientious work ethic. Calm, outgoing & friendly - pets warm up to me on their terms. I keep you informed with pictures & messages as arranged to ease your mind as you travel.

I accept non-paid and paid sits including Airbnb overseeing & appreciate tips. My Colorado Department of Education Substitute Teacher Certification (Oct 2019-2021) required full CBI, FBI, local background & fingerprint checks and is proof of my honesty and integrity.

To date - no loss of pet, possession or property.

Testimonials

Excellent Sitter

Kathy did a great job watching our cats, house & chickens while we were away for an extended period of time. Our cat Ernie had some unexpected health problems during her stay & she went above and beyond to care after him. We are so grateful that we chose Kathy to be our sitter.

Great House/Pet Sitter

Kathy stayed at our house for several weeks and took care of our old Golden Retriever, Molly. All was in tip top shape when we returned--plants, house, and Molly had been well loved. Kathy is very trustworthy, dependable, and respectful. I would not think twice about having her take care of our home again!
