Platinum (36mths+)

The fee range shown is an estimation based on kitties who are lower maintenance and therefore a lower fee than dogs. It's helpful for me to receive some renumeration with consideration to the level of exchange. I welcome conversation to explore the possibilities.

Devoted to Your Pets & Home!

60+, Self Employed

Hello - I'm a seasoned home and pet sitter/pet lover. Over my years of home and pet sitting I've fallen madly in love with dozens of dogs, throngs of kitties, a few rabbits, some chickens, a handful of birdies, and a few small-ish goats. In all cases, it's been a mutual love affair!

I love the companionship of fur people so being with them is my priority. I'm a homebody so your pets and your home get my presence and attention much of the time. Walks. Hikes. Play time and belly rubs for the pups. And for the kitties - well, it's always up to them: scritches, chin rubs and if I'm really lucky, belly rubs! Birds and I have a special connection and I love communicating with them and watching their antics!

I have rave reviews from all the parents of the fur children i've cared for and I've been given "second Mom" or "favorite Auntie" status by many.. I'll send you pics while you're away (if you want) and give you email updates to ensure your worry-free time away from your loved ones.

I'm home savvy and have a keen awareness of the function of your home and have property management experience. I'm 60+, neat and tidy, easy going, grounded, quiet, meditative, star-gazing, simple-living kind of person.

No rating Isha was such a wonderful housesitter! We have a young dog and Isha took her on numerous walks and to the dog park and a friend who bumped into her at the dog park was impressed with how much our dog had bonded with Isha. In addition, Isha figured out that our cat, who suffers from severe allergies, was reacting to grain in her food. Isha changed her diet, after checking with me, and our cat is doing much better, no sneezing or coughing and her fur improved. Our house and plants were also well ... MORE

No rating Isha was by far the most sensitive to the needs of my kitty. Be that calming her down over the 4th of July or just hanging out with her everyday. Also, I needed to stay at my house for a couple of days and she graciously accommodated me as well as my friend and his little dog. My house was clean when I came home and all of my plants were thriving. I would highly recommend Isha!!
MICHELLE (Santa Fe New Mexico, May 2019)
No rating Isha is amazing! She loved on our dogs more than we do. She took excellent care of them as well as the house. Her dog walks were extra long which our dogs love. And the house was super clean and in perfect condition when we returned. Thanks Isha! I hope we are lucky enough to have you back some day.

No rating We just had Isha taking care of our home and pets for several weeks. She was absolutely amazing in every way. My husband and I are convinced she is truly a pet whisperer and we have no doubt that our two cats and parrot were spoiled rotten during our time away. We received the most wonderful stories and pictures during our travels and our home and yard looked absolutely perfect upon our return. We would not hesitate to use Isha again and look forward to having her back in the future. If ... MORE
SANDY (Prescott Arizona, Sep 2018)
No rating My husband and I were cautious in selecting a potential house and dog-sitter for a 10-day trip recently, because we had been "burned" once by house-sitters (through another website) who cancelled at the very last minute. However, after having Isha Haddigan here for our recent 10-day trip, our faith in humanity and house- and dog-sitters is restored! From the beginning, Isha was a good communicator, businesslike, but also very friendly. When she arrived, she immediately did what was needed ... MORE

No rating Isha sat for us for eleven days in July and took great care of our two dogs and our home. My dogs connected with her immediately. Upon my return he dogs were happy and healthy. The house was spotless and Isha took care of everything per our agreement. Isha was easy to communicate with and I will definitely ask her to come back. I highly recommend Isha if you are looking for a sitter.
CAROL ( California, Jul 2018 - 1 week 4 days)
No rating Isha was our house sitter for 4 weeks in June/July of 2018. She took wonderful care of our pets and home. Our two dogs, although loving and usually calm, can sometimes be anxious and perhaps not the easiest to care for, but Isha had a loving, gentle approach and provided excellent care and exercise. She is attentive to the details of the pets as well as the home. Both our dogs and our cat were well cared for and at ease with a sincere bond of friendship with Isha. She sent some pictures and ...
