About this sitter

I am a mature, well traveled (Europe, Asia/SE Asia, North Africa, Middle East, Mexico) home owner with two cats. I grew up with a dog and spent a recent summer dog walking for the Washington, DC animal shelter. Love both cats and dogs, had guinea pigs, rats and rabbits as pets while growing up and am very comfortable taking care of them. I am a neat and responsible, fully vaccinated non-smoker who drives both manual and automatic cars on either side of the road.

Why they want to house sit

I love travel, cats and dogs (and am experienced caring for them), am good with indoor and outdoor plants (including orchids), am a mature and responsible homeowner, and a fully vaccinated non-smoker. I have travelled (often solo) through Europe, Asia/SE Asia, North Africa, North America, the Middle East and Mexico (I speak basic Spanish), and am extremely comfortable with different cultures, thrilled to be in a foreign country. I will take excellent care of my host's home, pets and plants, and look forward to learning my host's country's culture.

Their experience

I have taken care of friends' pets and have owned and successfully taken care of my cats, both in health and sickness, my entire adult life and dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and rats as a child. In addition, I was a volunteer dog walker over a recent summer for the Washington, DC animal shelter and am good with all dog sizes, rambunctious or not. I also own a house, with numerous plants, in the city in Washington, DC that I have happily maintained for almost 20 years, so I will have no trouble maintaining your home and plants/gardens. Again, I have travelled widely (including Canada, Europe, Asia/SE Asia, Italy, North Africa, the Middle East, Mexico, Australia/New Zealand, and the U.S.), often solo. I'm very comfortable with different cultures and speak basic Spanish. I also am a very competent driver (either manual or automatic and on either side of the road), have an international drivers license and have driven through Bosnia, Canada, Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, St. Johns, San Marino, and the U.S.

What can they bring to the assignment

I adore animals, have taken care of friends' pets and have owned and successfully taken care of cats, in sickness and health, my entire adult life, as well as dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and rats as a child. In addition, I was a volunteer dog walker over a recent summer for the Washington, DC animal shelter and am good with any size dog, rambunctious or not. I also own a house, with houseplants and gardens, in Washington, DC that I have happily maintained for almost 20 years, so I will easily maintain yours. Again, I have travelled widely (including Europe, Asia/SE Asia, North Africa, the Middle East and Mexico), often solo, and speak very basic Spanish. I am very comfortable with different cultures. In addition, I have an international drivers license, can confidently drive a manual or automatic shift car on either side of the road and have driven through: Bosnia, Canada, Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, St. Johns, San Marino, and the U.S. Last, I am a fully vaccinated non-smoker.

In a nutshell, I love cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and rats and am very experienced caring for them. I am mature, neat and responsible, and will take excellent care of your home and pets!
