Ian R. R.

53, Federal Public Servant

Hi! I’m a middle-aged federal bureaucrat originally from Winnipeg, but living in Ottawa for the past 30 years. I’m just looking for a change of pace, mini-vacation, while enjoying time with pets and helping people out while they are away. I’m currently looking at places in Montreal, Winnipeg, Ottawa and Toronto for short stays.
While I would be pet-sitting alone, I have had 6 dogs in my lifetime, and I currently own a 6-year-old Cane Corso. She’s a big, slobbery, lazy oaf of a dog. As for cats, I haven’t owned one since childhood, but I grew up cat-sitting for neighbours and I also cat/dog sit for my sister often. As for plants, I definitely don’t have a green thumb, but I don’t think there have been any plant deaths under my watch. My interests are cycling, crosswords, listening to music, art galleries, indie films and finding sunny patios for nachos and seedy taverns for cold beer. Je parle français aussi.
References from my sister, and other friends for whom I’ve house/pet sat available!

Great and stress-free experience with Ian! Our cats seemed happy and relaxed and our apartment was as we left it upon our return! Overall, a reliable and considerate sitter we would gladly welcome again.

Ian was absolutely amazing. He took care of the cats so well! My cats get easily stressed out but when we came home they were absolutely calm and cheerful. He kept communicating with us the whole time and sending pictures. The house was impeccable and clean. He even fixed a pan's lid that my husband and I were struggling to fix. I'm sure next time I get out of town we are gonna text him.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
