About this sitter

We are retired, although still doing some work by choice, I am a really practical person, very good at keeping the home clean, good with giving pets medication and I do the DIY, Colin retired as an accountant and became an LTA tennis coach he teaches families locally part time. He is police checked for tennis and for AgeUK befriending.

Why they want to house sit

Being able to have a change of scenery at the same time as being with animals, give a service to those who need their home cared for and a garden (I love gardening) is perfect for us as we are very homely and love to be around animals.

Their experience

Between us we have experience with dogs, cats, and some knowledge of horses. We regularly care for cats. I used to stay on my Aunties farm when I was a youth and did most things from feeding tiny lambs after being rejected by the mother lamb to mucking out the stables and cleaning tack in return for horse riding. We are home owners and are fastidious when caring for other's property. We used to have a woodland, paddocks and rented our stables and like the natural world.

What can they bring to the assignment

We are dependable and trustworthy and IT literate so we can keep you informed on a daily basis if you need updates which would be our pleasure.

A treasure

Ingrid is a cheerful ray of sunshine and proven cat whisperer. It was a pleasure to communicate with her before and during the sit. The photos she sent of our cats had us wondering if they cared whether we ever returned or not. She competently took care of the house and cats, left everything spotlessly clean and even spoiled us with a delicious meal to return to. I can recommend her without reservation.
