I'm always asked back

64, retired

I'm a 64 year old widow and sold my business when my 57 yr old husband of 35 years died from kidney cancer. I now consider myself retired by default since we ran our plumbing business together and I sold it after his death.

Right now during COVID I am vaccinated and have started going to outdoor parties but I still hunker down with the pets since I love to snuggle the fur babies. I also disinfect the home I stay in on a regular schedule so when the owners come home they can be comfortable knowing their home is safe..

I want the rest of my life to be caring for humankind and volunteering for the needy, elderly, and abandoned pets. I love to travel and want to relocate to a warm winter state so this is a great way for me to check out other environments in the country.

I guess at first I was running away and after my husband passed I started house sitting for friends and family around the country. I ended up loving this so had branched out and using these sites I have had great experiences.

I am a social, organized, lively, honest neat freak. Very disciplined, non smoker, non drinker. I love others pets as though they are my own and have cared for elderly animals.
All my past house sitting jobs want to hire me back again, and I have done several of them multiple times.

I'm sure it's scary inviting a stranger into your home to care for it and your beloved pets, but take a chance with me and release your stress.

My goal is to make sure you leave your home without any worries about how things are going at the home front. I do keep in touch with the home owners and send them pics and videos (if they are interested in that) of what's going on at home.

If more bio is needed, see my attachments please. I really have been loving this house sitting gig! All the posted pictures are current within a couple years, usually of my travels!

No rating Carrie was a wonderful pet/house sitter. The cats were well taken care of as was the house. We had a new kitten who was a "horror" and she got him to tame down considerably. She was very organized and kept everything clean and in its place. She was pretty well housebound while we were away as it snowed a great deal, but she kept herself busy. I got some great ideas for the cat food area from the way she organized it for herself. It's much better organized for me now, too. I would not ... MORE

No rating I can't say enough about Carrie as a sitter...my cats love her, my plants love her and so do I! My home was very well taken care of during my absence as were my critters and plants. Carrie is not a "sit around" kind of gal, she worked on projects, added more flowers to my pots and beds and added some fun touches to my deck and home. I recommend her without hesitation and hope to have her back someday! In addition, I also made a new friend!
