A sitter in your house is the best form of security for your home while you're away. It's 100% free to place a job ad.
My usual rate is $25/day, but Covid-19 and variants have hit all of us hard; I have dropped my starting rate %20 to $20/day until this nightmare is over. Thank you.
Don't panic when you see I'm a paid sitter! My rates are considerably lower than you can find at boarding operations, but I love and care for them 24 hours a day. Many people don't want to pay for these services, but I am proof that you get what you pay for: you get 47 years experience.
You get . . . me!

Chances are, I love you already; you are just that kind of star. Say the word, and I'm ready to stay with one of you. Two? Fine. Or . . . how many? We'll talk. I like to spend lots of time with you; I don't want you to worry that your family is never coming back. Of course, they are. Or, so they told you . . . Until then, we are gonna go wild!
So, take a peek at the rest of my info. If I sound good, leave the phone open to this page and play all innocent when they ask if you did that. Sort of 'What? Oh, huh. She looks all right, I suppose? It's up to you though.'
This part is for your parents and it's boring so you all can get back to whatever you were doing when I so rudely interrupted you. Fingers crossed, I'll see you soon.
Name a type of animal and I've probably had experience with it, from alpacas to a flock of parrots to Labs on a barge boat.
I have cared for blind and deaf dogs and cats, animals needing medication, elderly pets, and 'tripods'. Extra love for exceptional pets.
I recently sat SEVEN parrots and two alpacas. Over the years I have also had experience with, among others, horses, ponies, donkeys, goats, chickens, ducks, parrots, pigs, aanndd... I'm sure there are more, but. . . Nope. That's it for now.
As I tell every owner, don't just go with the first applicant; take your time and find the perfect fit. That it invariably turns out to be me is proof you did your homework.
My mother was a breeder of many different kinds and my baby sister is a breeder of champion Cavs and French Bulldogs.
I have dragged a wounded horse from danger, staunched an animal's bleeding until I can carry or drive them to the vet to be treated. Dropper- and tube-fed runts of the litter, administered medications (including daily and multi-day injections) to spooked animals, dealt with a bloodbath of a very large dog's first heat, and cared for a small farm of animals.
(If you happen to be owners, this next bit is for you. Please, don't berate me; it's just my policy.)
I can take on just about any animals (I love big dogs and snarky cats.) But I MUST exclude:
Chimps. Pit bull types, bully dogs, American/English bull terriers. So, anything on the Dangerous Dogs Act list. I am very attached to my face. I would like it to stay attached to me.
All right, sir. You know how to reach me. Texts are fabulous! Or email me
