Loyal Sitter

62, Retired

I love adventure and look forward to this next chapter of my life, as
I have recently retired. I love to go where the wind blows and I'm grateful for all that is set before me.
I have been a home owner for 45+ years and know how important it is to maintain the investment. I have great attention to detail and I've gained much knowledge about home maintenance over the years.
My 20 years as a dairy farmer has given me a wealth of knowledge for detecting the wellness of an animal and I am sensitive to their needs. I've raised pigs, goats and a horse for fun. There were many dogs and cats on the farm as well as in my home over the years.
I have had two rescue cats in the past and I'm sensitive to thier needs as well and would be able to give a pill or shot if needed.
I have house sat several times for friends and family but this is the first time I have registered with a house sitting platform.
I am open to crossing the country for that next adventure and look forward to wherever that is. I have my own vehicle and will ensure to be available at least a day before house sits unless a pre meet has already happened.
If you are in need of a responsible, respectful and clean home sitter don't hesitate to contact.
Thanks for your concideration.

Actual Sitting: Oct 18 - Nov 4 2022 Offered directly We had to cancel May's trip If you are lucky enough to have Shirley interested in your pet sit, go away with peace of mind. Shirley is experienced, honest, detail-oriented, clean, caring, and immensely responsible. It's a bonus that she's just plain nice. When you are leaving a pricey property and your fur-family, this is so important. She understands about homes - and her questions assured me that she 'gets it'. Additionally, I have one ... MORE

It's hard for me to hold back the kitty tears. Thanks for such a lovely review. I'm reluctant to say just how wonderful this house sit was because I may miss out on the opportunity to sit again. This truly was my pleasure. Missing my Shadow.
Shirley is a 20 out of 10 Caring , detail oriented , responsible, kind . House was kept perfect, cats were smothered in love and unexpected watering of gardens, rows of lavender was done too! ( we had a very dry fall ) chickens were fat and sassy and Shirley is my new friend ! ♥️
AUDREY ( British Columbia, Sep 2022 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Excellent. Shirley certainly spoiled His Majesty. He wanted at least two walks a day when I got home! The house was left cleaner than when I left. The cat was happy. Everything was good. Would definitely use Shirley again. Very trustworthy.
BETTY ( British Columbia, Aug 2022 - 2 weeks)
Thank you Betty. Truly my pleasure to serve His Majesty :)
Shirley was a wonderful pet parent while I was away. I came back to a spotless house and happy critters. She had to do extra watering outside due to the heat wave and everything looks green and healthy. Good communication with pictures of my fur babies. I'm so glad she could fit me in between her other sits. Thanks Shirley.

Shirley is an excellent house sitter! Flexible, communicative, reliable and trustworthy! The house was spotless and the dog was happy and safe, I would not hesitate to recommend her.
SHANNON ( Alberta, Jun 2022 - 4 weeks)
Shirley was great, easy to meet in advance and easy to communicate with. We came home to a clean home with happy cats. Thanks again Shirley!
HILARY ( British Columbia, May 2022 - 3 days)
I can't say enough about Shirley! She was ready and willing to brave the extreme weather, road closures, flooding and mudslides BC is currently experiencing to ensure our boy was safe and cared for. Thankfully we were able to cancel the house sit and everyone remained safe. Even though the house sit didn't happen, we will absolutely be reaching out to Shirley for any future house/dog sitting.
