cary - experienced sitter
55+, retired enterprise architect
I am a single non-smoking fit and active female, who enjoys good health and is honest, well organised, trustworthy, reliable, flexible and a good communicator.
Having owned and sat pets and gardens for friends and neighbours most of my adult life, "sitting" seemed to be a mutually beneficial opportunity for both myself and home, pet and garden owners alike, while trying to find my "dream" location to retire.
I have been fortunate enough to be a full time sitter for the past three years. I offer experience with dogs, cats, birds, hens and fish; gardens of varying sizes, inclusive of acreage and the maintenance of pools.
Past owners have offered to provide references; if possible I would prefer to be short listed and have a telephone "chat" with a future owner prior to passing on the names of the referees. Sometimes these conversations prove beneficial to both parties and former owners need not be disturbed. I do hope you understand. the respect and security I need to offer all owners. This framework has evolved on an as needs basis and I accept that I may miss out on some sits by not offering my, or owners names/phone no.'s until after the first conversation.
Finally, I welcome any questions as I know it is important for you to feel comfortable with my character and ability, before I am entrusted with all that is valuable to you.
