Early retirement from the beginning of June 2023.
My time is then my own!
I love to get away for short and long term breaks!
References can be e mailed.
My career experience, when leaving school I worked in an accounts office which I enjoyed but had the opportunity to work with people with special needs which actually suited my caring nature more then moved from UK to Ireland and for the past few years have been working in the community with the elderly which has been an enriching experience. Also I have been approved for fostering children which is a very stringent process of being evaluated from birth to present time! which Includes police/ garda checks , social,education and work history, evidence of approval on request.
Now it's time for an active early retirement !!
I love to get away for short and long term breaks and to continue my care work with pets.Can see no better way of doing it then doing house sits near or far! As you will see from my excellent references supplied on request I have done care work for many years an love being able to continue this caring for people's pets and homes.
Also would be very interested in a long pet, house sit from Mid November to mid March with much flexibility for the people. Would consider any location.
In my short time since early retirement I have cared an house sat for a delightful Shy cat in Ireland successfully as per owners attached testimonial. I am currently half way through a 7 week sit in Andulsia Spain caring for Luna an adorable terrier dog and 4 gorgeous cats one with special needs having oral medication morn an evening which is also all going very positively. Also have secured two bookings for September in UK caring for another cat and fish.
I have worked full time for many years hence did not have any pets for this reason, in my youth had dogs,cats,fish and even a little white mouse! I love to explore new areas near or far and see this as a great opportunity to also give my love and care to people's loved animals which I so enjoy. Currently
When I am house sitting for people they can be assured that I would be giving love and care and time to their pets

Bernie is an honest, reliable house sitter. My four cats and one dog were cared for by Bernie to a impeccable standard. My dog Luna enjoyed her daily walks and became devoted to Bernie during her eight week stay. My four cats were grateful for Bernie's company and attention to detail for all their needs and comfort. I can whole heartedly recommend Bernie who will love your fur babies as if they were her own.
This was my first time having someone staying in my house while I was travelling, and I was a bit concerned because I know how shy my cat is. My biggest concern was that he might go outside and not come back inside because there is someone in the house he doesn’t know, and normally when that happens, he would go hiding immediately. Bus I have gathered from the references Bernie sent me beforehand that she must be a very caring and patient person. Communication with Bernie was very easy and nice from the beginning, whether by email or in the video call. When she arrived the evening before I left, my cat was around and didn’t disappear straight away, and to my absolute surprise, he let her not only come close, but he ate some dry food out of her hand! We “practiced” letting him out and in again and giving him breakfast, and when I saw how well that went, I was really glad. While I was away, we stayed in touch and Bernie updated me without me asking for it, sending me pictures and videos. One time I totally freaked out because she sent me a video that showed her gently brushing my cat. I could not have imagined he would allow this ever. When I came back home I found a house that was, kitchen and bathroom included, spotless. My cat was so relaxed (and obviously mad at me for leaving :D) that he didn’t even bother getting up from his cushion to greet me. (We’re fine again now.) Overall, I can only say that I am very glad I have met Bernie on this website and that I can absolutely recommend her.
