About this sitter

Photographer, writer, certified substitute teacher (Colorado K-12), I volunteer, sightsee to enjoy your area. Sitting fills my heart with pet &/or plant love and my wanderlust giving new adventures at every turn.

I do not have pets, I can but rarely drink, and I do not smoke, or use drugs. I was on this site before & have references upon request.

Why they want to house sit

I love caring for pets, plants, & property. Many homeowners ask me to return and we become friends. I take the security of your possessions very seriously. Sightseeing and traveling to new places is fun. I enjoy volunteering or working part time to learn about the best places to shop and eat.

Property: 1-40 acres, rural - suburban - city - houses, condominiums - out buildings (barn, green house, chicken coop, garage, workshops), privacy gates, HOA, and gated communities. Quick thinking saved property during high winds, rain, snow, and icy conditions (pipes/crops/vehicles).

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 as advertised & appreciate tips. My Colorado Department of Education Substitute Teacher Certification (Oct 2019-2021) required full CBI, FBI, and local background & fingerprint checks.

To date 35 mid-to long sits in 8+states in 3 years, dozens of dogs/cats and more - 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!
