There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
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, this is getting harder as there are so many new locations for me to choose from.
I have been fortunate enough to be a full time sitter for the past two and a half 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 for a sit before I pass on the names of the referees. This usually is achieved by a telephone conversation. I do hope you understand. the respect and security I need to offer all owners. My 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 and locations until after first contact. ,
