Pet experience

Dog(s), Cat(s), Horse/Donkey(s), Fish – My first experience with looking after pets was when I was a teenager and my friends parents selected me to watch over their house and horses while they were out of town. It was a good experience and I realized I can be very good at it.

About this sitter

I am a retired lady living a happy life. I am from Colorado but currently residing in Palm Springs, CA, enjoying the wonderful weather and freedom of retirement. I normally travel many months of the year in the U.S. and Europe. Since travel is returning to a more normal way, I am exploring again and believe that house sitting is a very nice option for enjoying new places and experiences. I believe that house sitting is a great benefit for both the homeowner and the house sitter.

Why they want to house sit

I love animals and travel and by combining those I am able to enjoy the joys of both. Since I travel so much and am not able to have a pet of my own, it is wonderful to have a pet to care for and enjoy when I am house sitting.

Their experience

In July/Aug 2022 I house sat with a kitty in Paris for a month. In 2023 I have completed cat sits in Provence and Switzerland that were about 2 weeks each. I have also house sat for family and friends. I find these experiences to be fun and rewarding. I enjoy getting to know the kitties and we seem to bond quickly.

What can they bring to the assignment

I am a retired professional, and very dependable, clean, and trustworthy. I respect the value of people's homes but most importantly their beloved animals and want to make sure that the owner can be comfortable knowing their home and "children" are well cared for.

Testimonials

Super friendly and kind, Elaine is an amazing cat&house sitter!

I am very happy to provide a testimonial for Elaine, who recently took care of our house and cat in Switzerland for two weeks. Elaine really did a great job; she was kind and friendly throughout her stay, showing genuine care for our cat (and our plants!) We returned to find our house in good order and our pet well looked after. As an extra, Elaine shared with us some of her expert knowledge of European travel. She shared a number of amazing travel recommendations! Also worth mentioning is Elaine's flexibility. When a situation arose where I needed to host a friend at the same time, Elaine was very accommodating and worked out a solution that worked for everyone. In conclusion, Elaine is a reliable, kind, and versatile house and cat sitter. She is a great choice for anyone in need of a trusted caretaker. We wholeheartedly recommend her!

A great sitter :-)

Elaine looked after our apartment and our cat for four weeks this summer (2022). We were very happy with how it all went - She took good care of everything, handled the occasional problem with great competence, and communicated very well. She kept us up to date with regular nice photos of our cat, and was generally friendly and pleasant all around. We would happily have Elaine as a sitter in the future, and we are sure that Bambou (our cat) would agree!
