Former Vet Tech & Cat Whisperer

Former Vet Tech


About Melinda & John
We are John and Melinda... a married, mature, non-smoking couple with DECADES of house sitting experience. My education was pre-veterinary and I was a vet tech for 12 years. John is a veteran who has had a home zoo including tropical birds, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc. I call him the "cat whisperer", because even the most timid feline will eventually find its way to his lap.

Why we want to house sit...
We love to travel and especially like to experience places more as "locals" than "tourists". We're a quiet couple, quite content with each others' company and we don't like crowds. We have no pets at this time through attrition -- we decided it was time for us to be free to travel. But that doesn't mean we don't miss having them around!

Our experience
As a vet tech with professional boarding experience, I've cared for thousands of animals over the years, and we have house-sat from New York to California to Maine, the Caribbean and Europe as well (obviously not all through this website). Your pets' needs such as medication, injections, etc. will be met. And they're going to miss us when we're gone!

In addition, John and I have owned and renovated almost a dozen homes over the years, from antique homes to country acreage to the Jersey Shore, a Florida island home and a Manhattan apartment. We are quite capable of handling any house emergency issues.

We come insured and upon request will provide an up-to-date background check.

Clean accommodation for two and a reliable internet connection , or at least cell phone reception. Pre-arrangement with your veterinarian is a must, in case of emergency. If you think we might be a match, let's chat!

Garden Maintenance

Green garden!

Make sure the garden & the potted plants are thriving when you return home. A house sitter will do this for you.
