In the Chicagoland area I offer my services for a fee, depending on the number/type of animal(s) and services required.

Outside of Chicago I will consider offering my services in exchange for lodging only. However, if you feel like showing a little extra appreciation, Grubhub, Doordash or Instacart gift cards are my life!

Expenses such as pet food, litter, veterinary care and household utilities/maintenance are to be paid by the homeowner.

Hello! If you are looking for an experienced non-smoking vegetarian house sitter, who is reliable, clean, quiet, considerate, friendly, and who will look after your home and pets with the love and respect they deserve, then please keep reading.

I'm an extroverted introvert who knows that any place is fun, if you're with the right company (especially furry friends)! Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, I am now a citizen of the world. As an only child, I always had lots of animal "siblings" to keep me company when I was little. I have grown to respect and love animals and the people who love them.

I currently work remotely and look forward to spending more time caring for animals as a traveling petsitter. As a former flight attendant, I am used to handling situations with flexibility and humor. I am also a former AirBnB Superhost, and enjoy many fabulous reviews!

My interests include roller skating, vegan cooking and restaurants, journaling, and learning Spanish.

Alecia is a fabulous Housesitter! Our dog, Galette, took to her as soon as they met, and followed her around the house with her tail wagging continually! Alecia did a great job communicating with us, sending daily emails, photos and even videos! She also responded quickly when we reached out to her, which we greatly appreciated! Alecia left our home in perfect condition - it hardly seemed like anyone had been there! Most importantly, it was clear that Galette had been well cared for - after ... MORE

Alecia has awesome energy and gave my kitty a lot of love! I was local during this sit and she allowed me to swing back home to grab a few things I was needing, which I really appreciated. I felt very good about having her here in the house for two weeks.

Alecia did a wonderful job of looking after my apartment and my kitty. She communicated with me about when she was arriving and when she would leave, and offered to send daily updates about the cat. Everything was in its place when I returned, with all my mail in a central spot. The place was clean and in good order. Alecia also offered her pet-feeding services to my neighbor across the hall for a few days. I hope Alecia will house-sit for me again!
SARAH ( California, Dec 2021 - 4 weeks)
Alecia and her mom were the perfect house/cat sitters! Alecia was extremely flexible, communicative, and easy to work with. She made the otherwise stressful idea of leaving your pet alone easy, as I knew my cat and home were well taken care of. The apartment was left clean and in tip-top shape, which is the BEST thing to come home to after a trip!!! 10/10 - Thank you, Alecia!
