Kind & Caring Animal Lover
Young 50's, Life Coach & Teacher
Hi my name is El & I have been housesitting now for over 2.5 years this time around.
I have a way with animals and especially rescue animals or ones that are frightened of people ~ and most often make your beloved pets feel safe and loved almost immediately ~ as can be seen in many of my testimonials.
I can provide numerous excellent testimonials both written & people you can phone if you wish too.
However most people KNOW if they want me to care for their home & animals once they have had a chat on the phone to me.
I am healthy, active and happy to care for your animals and your home.
I LOVE BOTH dogs & cats......and chooks, ducks, cows, sheep ... basically all animals.
Raised on a farm, I am able to care for farm animals as well.
Having been single all of my life ~ I am also pretty handy around the house too.
I am reliable, respectful and responsible. You can expect to find your home and your fur babies all well loved and taken care of when you return home.
My knack of helping your pets feel safe and loved in a very short time makes their experience a wonderful one too while you are off enJOYing your holiday.
I love peace and quiet and my own company ~ so NO I am not scared of the dark & therefore will not run off in the middle of the night. :-)
I work all over the world from home, 5 - 10 hours a week.... so plenty of time to love and care for your pets & home.
(I have my own international phone plan.)
Cats & dogs sitting on my feet while I am working is a common occurrence for me.
"Shy" cats & dogs climbing all over me is also a nice surprise for their owners!
Basically I am a non smoking, non drinking, clean & tidy organic living, happy meditating spiritual lady!!!
That also means I clean your home with vinegar and bicarb ~ rather than harsh chemicals and I use water and electricity very conservatively.
You will find photos uploaded of some of the wonderful animals I have cared for with my profile pic. I also have a few testimonials and videos I can email you of "SHY" pets I have cared for recently.
I look forward to speaking with you to see if we can help each other... You are welcome to phone me and leave a message for me to call you (please do NOT TEXT as I will NOT RECEIVE IT) if that is better for you.... it is certainly better for me as I am not a good typist & NOT always online.
Kind regards El
PS: PLEASE SEE BELOW A TESTIMONIAL FROM NICHOLSON FOR A 5 MONTH SIT: (I have lots of these as it took me ages to work out how to use the referral system here on my profile ~ and also lots of my sits come from referrals too)

My husband and I decided on an extended overseas holiday and wondered how could we look after our beautiful cat Miss Coco and decided to engage a house sitter. We put an add up on the internet and three responses. After careful consideration we chose Elmara. El arrived on schedule and as soon as she entered the house we knew that we had made the correct decision.
El has diligently looked after our girl and certain areas of our garden. She even gives our resident wallabies an occasional carrot. El has constantly kept in touch with us with messages and more importantly, photos of our girl.
We are extremely happy with El and so pleased that she has come into our lives. We highly recommend her and would be more than happy to discuss her with anyone that was to consider her for a position.
El has developed an amazing relationship with our beautiful cat Miss Coco. Coco has the run of the house and El has continued this as well. El has taken care of any misdeeds that Coco may done, like bringing presents in for her, as cats can do. El has trained Coco to be locked in the house overnight, which was something we were too weak to do. Coco appears to be very relaxed in her company. Lies with El when she is working on her computer, lies on her bed, exercise mat, the foot stool with El's feet.
El has also managed to nurse her for minutes at a time, which is something we haven't been able to do in 5 years. Coco was a rescue cat and came with a few issues. So El has helped us so much with her.
We can highly recommend to have El in your home caring for your pets.
I also have a fabulous testimonial from a 2.5 month sit that I can text you... where I cared for 5 cats, 2 dogs, 2 goats & 4 horses :-)
I then cared for 7 dogs ~ two of which were the stars of the movie Oddball and, 2 cats & 3 chooks (December 2017)
