Flexible & Caring Housesitter

53, Freelance photography

I'm a mature, quiet, nonsmoker & pet lover. Happy to follow any schedules for your "fur" babies + give them lots of love, pets & attention. I have experience with birds, deer, fish too. I'm happy to attend to any gardening needed. I've owned both homes & condos, sat on HOA Boards too. I can provide excellent recent references. Partial to longer-term assignments but open to shorter based on availability.
I've been pet sitting full time since June 2020 & genuinely love it!

This was the second time Katherine sat for our kitties & it ended up lasting several months until the beginning of June. The cats love her so much that I think they were upset when we finally came back home, ha. Katherine communicates & sends beautiful pics of your pets. She's a real team player & willing to help out with things beyond the scope of cat sitting. In addition to taking great care of our home & animals, she took excellent care of our plants. She's responsible, thoughtful & ... MORE

Katherine was a perfect fit! Ziggy the cat wouldn't have much to do with me until after she left! Will definitely look to use her in the future. She also handled our problem dog with needed confidence.

Katherine makes being far from home for a long time so relaxing and enjoyable as we don't have to worry at all about the care of our home or our sweet "kittens" as she is so responsible, respectful, conscientious, thoughtful, proactive AND fun! If there were more than 5 stars to check we would do just that! We--and the "kittens"-- are excited to have her coming back for 2 more long stays next year.

Katherine is an absolutely fabulous house sitter and cat sitter!! It worked out that she was currently house sitting about an hour away and we were able to meet her prior to house sitting for us. Then she was able to come a day early which gave us time to review all the "little things" that you don't necessarily think about such as where my rag pile is should the kitty make a mess! We both loved Katherine and received regular updates about how Moya, our kitty, was doing along with pictures. We ... MORE

Katherine is a repeat sitter at my home! She takes great care of the space, the plants and of course the two kitties. Her communication and updates are awesome. Somehow our paths have not crossed in person, but hopefully she'll stay here again and we can finally meet.

We were thrilled to have Katherine come back for a second time to stay with our 2 kitties. We really appreciate how well Katherine took care of our home and our kitties as well as tended to some garden tasks. She pays attention to detail, calmly addresses challenges and always keeps us in the loop. And, as a bonus, she sends us great photos of our kitties which always makes us smile. We are excited we get to have her back again before the end of the year and will keep her at the top of our ... MORE

Katherine was awesome from the first communication to the last! She was very good at texting and keeping in touch during the housesit. I felt 100% comfortable on my vacation that my senior cat and house were in good hands with her. When I returned Hershey was happy and the house was in order. I appreciate making a new friend, too!

Katherine was an awesome person to entrust our home and sweet "kittens" to during our 6 week vacation. She made us feel super comfortable and confident without the opportunity to actually meet in person due to Covid. She was great with her communication before, during and after, our "kittens" were well cared for and the house and garden were in perfect order. Her attention to the little things, comfort with the odd things and the willingness to do the extra things along the way was ... MORE

Katherine helped me out in a pinch when I was already out of town and without pet care. While we never met, her communication left me feeling secure that my cats would be well cared for. Katherine has a great sense of responsibility and knew when to reach out with any questions/concerns. I returned home to a clean home and happy cats. I would definitely recommend Katherine to care for any pet or home. Great experience!

Katherine did an outstanding job taking care of our dogs and chicks. We came home to a clean, well cared for home, happy, healthy dogs and food (meals) prepared for us. Katherine is a wonderful communicator....we received texts almost daily with pictures of the dogs. We would be happy to welcome her back!
RON AND PAULA ( North Carolina, Oct 2020 - 2 weeks)
Katherine was fantastic! She arrived a day early to meet our pets & get oriented with the house. She is very pleasant & fun to talk to. We were gone for 6 weeks & not once during that time did I have to worry about our pets or home. A hurricane was forecasted to possibly hit Houston. Even though Katherine had never been through a hurricane, she was calm, cool & collected. Simply called & said what do I need to do? She prepared the house & grounds for the storm & never once wavered in her ... MORE

No rating Katherine was wonderful, a great communicator and left the house in excellent condition. We couldn't be happier with our experience and would highly recommend her and use her again for future sits.
