About this sitter

We've been the guardians for animals for as long as we've been a couple, so going on 25 years now! These have included many amazing cats of our own, rescue and foster dogs, a slew of pet bunny rabbits, and farm poultry. We are well versed in special needs, be these dietary, medications, injections, mobility, etc.

I'm an academic librarian, writer, and ambitious cook. Mike is a web designer, amateur astronomer, and RPG enthusiast. Other than exploring for travel we tend to be massive homebodies, so you can count on us being present in your home when you're away.

Sometimes we travel separately to places that support our hobbies/projects, to visit friends and family, or just to have some alone time. We will always let you know which of us will be sitting if this is the case.

Why they want to house sit

We're combined house sitters and homeowners on this platform, meaning we absolutely understand how much trust and communication is involved in (1) letting someone stay in your home and (2) care for your animals. A lot is at stake in that relationship. We prefer to have clear expectations and communication as sitters, and that's taught us a lot about the role of owners as well.

Their experience

We've been pet sitting animals as long as we've had them as a couple, so going on 25 years now! Now that we live in a rural area we have more experience caring for poultry (mainly chickens, the occasional duck or peafowl) and small livestock (goats and sheep, mostly).

We're great with cats, having owned (been owned by?) and watched many for friends, neighbors, and family over the years. Mike is basically a cat whisperer, though they usually like me as well. We are well equipped to handle special needs, be that medications, special diets, fluids, subcutaneous injections.....

We also have experience with rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, and other small rodents. Most reptiles are fine. No spiders, please!

If we're both at the sit we are happy to care for multiple pets, large dogs, puppies, or pets with special needs. If we are traveling solo it will depend on the animals and whether we feel able to give them the standard of care they require.

What can they bring to the assignment

As sitters we've historically cared for cats, indoor small pets, poultry, and livestock. Since losing our own rescue dog in 2021, we have added dog sitting to our repertoire. We are happy to include your dogs in our daily activities and adventures whenever possible; use of a vehicle is always appreciated if we're not in our own car.

If we're sitting together we are usually happy to care for multiple pets, large dogs, or special needs. If we are traveling solo it will depend whether we feel able to adequately meet the pets' needs and the homeowner's expectations.
