About this sitter

Hello, I'm a 60+ female with time on my hands! I have always been involved with animals firstly I grew up on a farm and then I trained as a veterinary nurse working with both large and small animals. I've also volunteered for various animal welfare groups including the Alexander Junior wildlife Centre and the marine rescue centre in California, the Isle of Man Seal Sanctuary and the PDSA (UK) fostering cats. Now I've discovered house sitting I'm in a win win situation as it joins my love of animals with travel. I am not looking for anything particular in a house sit, just a nice relaxing environment with pet cuddles.

Why they want to house sit

I don't have pets of my own so to get my much needed pet therapy I just love to take care of other folks fur babies and farm animals. I also love visiting new areas to learn about different cultures, environments and foods and to leave behind a British winter!

Their experience

I have over 10 years of house sitting with nearly 50 sits completed, taking good care of 45 dogs, 65 cats, as well as a few chicken, sheep and fish. My Trusted House Sits are all 5*. Due to my vet nursing background I am confident on taking care of high risk pets such as older pets and those requiring medical care or assistance. I've travel and worked extensively, I retrained as a Marine Biologist which led me to live in many tropical countries and travel extensively in other places. I've worked in the Philippines, Suriname, South Africa, CuraƧao, Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Man.

What can they bring to the assignment

I'm very comfortable around most animals, I'm practical and tend not to make mountains out of mole hills. I'm pretty neat and tidy and respect people's places and personal affects. I don't smoke and don't drink much. I can drive left or right side of the road, happy with manual, automatic, 4x4 or 2 wheels, motorised or otherwise. I'm also an experienced gardener, mainly fruit & vegetables but know enough to keep house plants alive and outdoor garden plants watered and fed. But my main focus will be on pet welfare and their comfort. I'm pretty independent and happy to be on my own in most remote places. Though on occasions my long suffering partner! will join me for part or all of a sit with the home owners permission

Lovely house sitter

Jill was an excellent, kind and efficient pet and house sitter. It is clear that the 3 dogs took to her immediately and, on our return, were obviously happy and had been very well looked after. Jill has experience of so many aspects of life that anyone thinking of inviting her to sit need have no concerns. She is capable and kind. We had time to introduce her to the house and the animal regimen before we left and no issues arose either when away or on our return. We would be delighted if she was available to house sit when we next travel.
