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. I have also house sat for family and friends. I found the housesitting assignment in Paris to be very rewarding and I can now say, it is a good fit for me! I enjoyed it and everything went great!

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.

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!
