About this sitter

After 35 years of teaching and raising 2 wonderful sons, I am enjoying quiet time at home, reading a good book and snuggling with our dogs. The smaller one, Teddy, loves being by my side and let’s me know when he wants to get under the blanket. My husband laughs and says he hopes to come back in another life as the pet of a middle aged woman.
As a house sitter and fellow pet owner, I hope to provide the family with peace of mind. Traveling is wonderful but only if you can feel confident that your animal family members will be well cared for while away. I will glad to provide that trust just as I would expect for our pets.

Why they want to house sit

First and foremost, we love all kinds of animals. Raising boys means we have had a wide range of critters in our home from hamsters and fish to dogs and turtles. I also know what it means to go on vacation and worry about our pets. Some pet sitters have been excellent while others have not. Recently, we were away for a week and the sitter chose to walk our dogs separately. I can only imagine the stress that it caused the dog left behind each time. When we got back, I noticed our little one was horse and could barely bark. It was so upsetting. Another incident sounds funny now but several years ago we received a phone call from the sitter saying all the chickens had disappeared. It was nighttime and she didn’t know what to do. She had forgotten to leave the door to the coop open so they couldn’t get in at sunset. It was a long night for all of us until the sun came up and the chickens safely came down from the tree where they had been hiding.

I know we will be excellent, caring pet sitters who will provide the best of care. We want the owners to enjoy their vacation and not come home disappointed. We know from our own pets and vacation experiences what is expected and will do everything possible to make it a great experience for all.

Their experience

For several years, I provided care for people’s pets who went on vacation. For cats, I visited their home twice each day to feed them, clean out the litter box and provide companionship. When caring for dogs, I visited 3 times a day to feed and walk them. I also spent time at the house so the animals could receive proper attention and love.
More recently I have organized a local petsitting coop with neighbors who also like to travel. We take turns providing quality care for each other’s fur babies while vacationing. It has been wonderful to get to know new people and connect through our pets.

What can they bring to the assignment

We will bring kind hearts and a strong sense of responsibility to any opportunity. My husband loves to garden and look after his chickens while I enjoy relaxing with the dogs on the couch. I also enjoy long walks with the hounds on beautiful days in Charlotte. I get a chance to play with cats at my son’s house since our dogs would rather chase than love on them.
We also hope to establish a bond with new animals, people and places around the world.
