My husband and I are an active retired couple, we are non-smokers and lead an active lifestyle. We enjoy travelling and have been to 8 of the 10 Canadian provinces. Both of our children moved to Canada over 15 years ago. Our son is a university professor in Montreal and our daughter is an accountant in Vancouver. I used to work as a teacher all my life and my husband used to work as a general contractor in the construction industry. He is extremely handy and can fix things about the house.
We are considering living somewhere in British Columbia (buying or renting) but have not yet decided where. We are unable to afford short term rentals as these tend to be quite expensive. House sitting will give us an opportunity to live in different parts of the province and decide on our ideal place to retire and where we would eventually like to live. Moreover, we have a huge heart and love for animals and, therefore, we enjoy taking care of pets and making sure people have peace of mind while they are away.
We were lucky to have some experience in house sitting in 2018 here in British Columbia. We housesat for two sweet cats in Salmon Arm for over a month, then for two lovely dogs from two families in Comox for over a month and a half. We then resumed housesitting in 2021 and enjoyed taking care of amasing pets including dogs, a hamster, a fish and mice in Vancouver and Vancouver Island. We received nice testimonials from all our houseowners. We used to live in our own house where we raised cute pets cats and dogs.
Right now we are permanent residents of Canada and have received 2 Phizer vaccine recently.
