We are a married couple who are happily retired and enjoying traveling through taking care of other people's homes and pets while they are away. We signed on to this website in 2011 and have thoroughly enjoyed meeting different homeowners and their pets over the years! We have done house/cat sitting in Fallbrook, CA. 3 different times for the same couple! We have also taken care of homes and pets for people in Colorado, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina & Washington state. We have excellent references available! We don't smoke or drink and God has blessed us with excellent health. We try to eat right and take walks together often. We keep a very clean and tidy home! We respect other people's homes and possessions and take care of them and their beloved pets as if they were our own! Thank you for considering us for your next get away! We promise not to disappoint!

Thanks so very much! We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home & taking care of your sweet cats, Finch & May!! We hope that they and you both are doing well!! It was an honor & a privilege to meet you & taking care of them! Thank you!

To my surprise when I returned, they had left a sweet picture of my fur babies in a frame and a thank you card. That really impressed me! They took my 3 fur babies for ... MORE

We appreciate your glowing review of us, Helene! It was such a pleasure staying in your beautiful home, getting acquainted with your sweet dogs & enjoying the beautiful area where you live!
No rating David and Carolle Tallman are just wonderful! They recently completed a three week sit for us and we have nothing but praise for them. Our spoiled kitty - Miss Ginny - was so well cared for and absolutely no stress for any of us. They were prompt with communication, thorough with details, so very friendly and paid close attention to all the little "quirks" to expect from our house. They sent us text messages and photos throughout their sit and left us the sweetest card and framed picture of ... MORE

No rating We enthusiastically endorse Carole and David, who did a fantastic job looking after our home and two aged Cavalier King Charles spaniels for 3 weeks in late summer 2017. This included a 10-day period while we were canoeing in a remote wilderness area with no phone, text or email capability.They arrived one day before our departure to ensure we had plenty of time to orient them to our house and pets. Once, they phoned us to ask about one of the dogs not eating enough, questioning whether to take ... MORE
