Cheri on the Job!

64, writer

I am new to house sitting but you won't find a more honest or reliable person than me. As I have been self employed my entire life, I have a strong work ethic.

I am a writer with 8 published nonfiction books and hundreds of published articles. Currently most of my work comes from where I am a contributing editor.

I LOVE ANIMALS. This is the first time in life I find myself dogless (long tragic story, but recently lost my rescue dog to cancer). So am very comfortable with and used to dogs as I have had them my entire life. While I have not owned cats, my family does, and I love them too. I even have some experience with exotic birds. I am willing to care for all types of animals as long as you get me up to speed on what they need.

I do have a Ram truck and 25 foot travel trailer, so prefer house sits with RV parking. (I am comfortable staying in the trailer if you don't want anyone staying in your house, or can stay in the house as the case may be). But for the right opportunity and enough notice, I could find RV storage and leave it behind. I may also be available to travel outside my "preferred locations" for longer term house sits.

Cheri is wonderful, she loved my dogs and cared for them as if they were her own. She updated me throughout my time away. I was gone when my tomato harvest was exploding, and she picked them and made the best marinara sauce! Definitely recommend Cheri for house sitting, she is trustworthy, reliable and caring.
