50, Early Retiree (project manager)
I have had both cats and dogs for pets till a few years ago.
I did early retirement this year and pet care and house sit for a change of scenery and not as a place to live.
I love houses and cooking, baking and staying indoors with furry friends either watching Netflix movie or with a good book. I have house sat on an off in Australia with 6 and 3 months in Asia and Europe and UK for a couple whom I was a nanny for when at uni.
I just completed a kitty pet care in Sydney for a beautiful family and gorgeous intelligent cat with spunk and character.
I would say yes to country towns 2 hours away from major capital cities and access to transport.
I love mini breaks especially where I can have an oven and bake and in the evening read with animals by my side. I am now early retired and so would love to spend more time and and walk doggies.
