About this sitter

We are Kathryn and Dick, a Scottish couple in our early 30s. We have just returned from a 6 month trip in South East Asia. Dick works in software/machine learning and Kathryn works in health research as a social scientist. We are happy to house sit across the UK, the rest of Europe and, honestly the rest of the world if it's a longer stay. We love animals, having both had pets growing up, and are asked to dog/cat sit for friends.

Why they want to house sit

We love animals but aren't ready to settle down just yet. House sitting provides stability and routine but also the chance to see a new place, look after animals, and meet new people (even if only briefly!).

Their experience

We have looked after pets in our own home and Kathryn has house sat for a colleague previously, looking after a Pointer puppy and a Patterdale terrier . We have lived together for 6 years so have experience of taking care of a house and garden, and other people's pets. (we are waiting on references from friends and will add once we get them).

What can they bring to the assignment

We can bring quality animal care and can guarantee that Dick will check everything is locked twice. We are good at following instructions and keeping you up to date if you want updates. Kathryn has sat with a scared Shiba on her knee for 5 hours through fireworks night after being chosen as her safe person for the evening, so we can definitely bring lots of compassion and care.
