Cat Servants and Doggie Companions

77, Retired Not-For-Profit Manager

75, Retired Business Owner

We are currently looking for summer house sits in coastal Maine. In January 2025, we don our snowbird wings and head south to warmer territory. We would love a sit on a Caribbean island, Florida or Hilton Head Island area.

Laura is a retired not-for-profit manager, having worked in the arts, tourism industry and social services. She loves large breed dogs (has owned two German Shepherds) and is a crazy cat lady, just minus the 99 cats. She loves animals and nature, enjoys traveling, keeps fit with yoga and sharing the love of reading as the steward of a Little Free Library.

Eldon has had careers in the energy industry and government and has retired from his business. His interests include reading, travel, golf and serving on volunteer organizations. He enjoys many genres of music and collects anything by Bob Dylan, but please don't hold that against him:) Eldon adores cats and seems to be something of a cat magnet.

Laura is an American/Canadian dual citizen. Eldon is just a plain old Canadian.

We are non-smokers, calm, neat and tidy folks who appreciate a clean and organized home.

We are both fully vaxxed and boosted.

Cats rule in our household. Sadly, we lost our beloved ginger tabby but a long-haired, green-eyed beauty soon arrived and is currently running the estate.

We are homeowners with a lifetime of experience caring for homes and pets. We also engage house sitters while we travel so we understand the concerns of homeowners in having capable, kind and trustworthy people to care for their prized possessions. You can be assured that your home and privacy will be respected.

We provide companionship for your pets. Although we enjoy exploring whatever the area has to offer, we are homebodies at heart. We are just as happy to curl up with a good book, a big cup of tea and a furry critter or two nearby. We will follow your pets' routines and provide all the attention, walkies, playtime, love and snuggles that they can stand! If the pet usually sleeps with you, we expect to have a footwarmer at bedtime.

Getting to know your pets is the fun part of our vacations. So far in our 22 house sitting adventures, we have had the pleasure of caring for 15 dogs, 33 cats, a hilarious African Grey Parrot and a few fishies. In addition to the positive reviews on this site, we have many more we would be happy to share with you.

We are reliable. When we commit to your dates, you can depend on us to arrive on time so you can depart on schedule.

We believe that good communications are essential for a successful house sit. We will be pleased to keep in touch with daily updates and photos or videos so you can see how your pets are adjusting to their new friends. We are committed to making your time away from home worry-free.

If we look like a good fit for your furry family, let's chat and answer any questions you may have.

Where to even begin- Laura and Eldon were just incredible! They provided clear and consistent communication from the initial inquiry until returning home. We were updated every day with photos of our pets. Laura and Eldon were beyond flexible and accommodating with unforeseen schedule changes. They were proactive in troubleshooting any issues that arose with the home and contacted us with solutions. Both our pets and home were so well cared for. They went above and beyond our expectations ... MORE

No rating There are not enough words to express how grateful we are to Laura and Eldon for the wonderful and thoughtful care they took of our Ruby. We were on an extended trip, and during our absence, they noticed that Ruby had developed a limp and was favoring one of her paws. Without hesitation, they brought Ruby to her vet and had the paw examined. They proved how exceptional and caring they were by paying for not only the vet bill and Ruby's medication but, without hesitation, trusting us to ... MORE

No rating Laura and Eldon were amazing. They loved on, played with and brushed our kitties for a little over 22 days. We received pictures and updates everyday. Laura's notes with the pictures were informative and at times very funny. Laura could be a comedy writer!! When we got home, our home was immaculate, cleaner than when we left. The lawn had been mowed and everything was perfect. Most importantly the kitties were happy and healthy and had clearly formed strong bonds with Laura and Eldon. Thank ... MORE

No rating Laura and Eldon took fantasic care of my kitties and my house! This was my first time travelling while having a housesitter at home, and Laura talked me through the process, what was required, and how it all works. Her cat snapshots and updates helped me sleep soundly, secure that all was well, while I was far away. Very grateful for their help and care. Thanks so much!

No rating Laura and Eldon took very good care of my house and 2 cats for almost a month. Laura sent notes and pictures of the cats indicating that all was well with them. The house was in perfect condition when I returned. [Probably better than when I left it !] I feel that I've made 2 new friends and will certainly give Laura and Eldon first option to return when I take my next trip. They are friendly, caring people with cheerful dispositions and positive attitudes...perfect for taking careful care ... MORE
