  • I worked on family farms when I was young to early 20's. Being around cattle mostly on a pure bread farm; a little experience with horses but only their tame working pets. I have operated machinery starting as a youth and although it's been a while. Sure just to go over and be shown again, I would pick up easily. Haven't operated any of the newer tech equipment, but again a little explanation/ showing we should be ok. I'm Not looking for a job though !

63, Adventure/Travel & Retired; formerly in Health Care

I am new to home sitting, so just giving a little information about myself to start. I'll return and update a few times as I sort what you would like to know and about who's gonna be staying at your home. I'm also a Non-smoker !
My goal would be possibly to have repeat sittings with some who come to and feel I have earned their trust..
My desired locations is Western Canada, our mountains and BC Coastline.
Your home, trusting in who's in it ? I may be new to home sitting but not to owning and caring for a home. I have cared for, built and renovated my own homes for 41 years.Building my first 4 level split at 22yrs of age. I took pride and enjoyed taking care of and designing a wonderful back yard especially my last home .
I retired a bit earlier here this past summer of 2021. My goal is to travel now, at least for a few years. (Re: Pandemic thing permitting). I have had my shots including my booster as well for three total.

Re My relationship with Pets:
I am a dog lover by choice, and seem to have cats come to me.
Over the years, one time in particular I was visiting a friend with a cat.
First time I had ever been to her place. She told me not to mind the cat, because for some reason, her cat never liked men ?
I never minded the cat, but about 10 minutes later her cat had hopped onto my lap for a good visit :)
As well, and just this fall; I visited a family member. Her daughter had rescued a wild kitten. My cousin could not believe out of their three cats, and out of all them; that rescue was coming to me all weekend. Not sure why this is, but I don't mind making friends with them. In my youth we had one house cat, a 1/2 Siamese/Persian. That cat taught itself literally, to do its jobs on the toilet. Only if she could have flushed :)
I haven't owned my own pet during my working career, as I always thought it wasn't fair to the animal. I have wanted a dog very much, but now, and again if I am able to travel it wouldn't be fair.
I hope this is enough of an introduction for now. I look forward to meeting you all.

Peace of Mind

Happy you!

With a house sitter looking after your pets, house and garden - you can really relax. Happy days.
