65, Retired

Hello! I live in Ohio, own my home. Divorced for 32 years. Worked for Dept of Defense for 33 years with Secret clearance so please don't be hesitant about leaving me to take care of your home and/or pets. Retired now. Responsible and reliable. Don't currently have any pets of my own as I have been travelling for last three years. During my past I have owned cats, dogs and horses, sheep and one pig (Ray), we ate Ray :-) Now trying to travel a bit smarter by being a home and pet sitter, this may also allow me to visit a location long enough to evaluate as my future home or to explore a new location. I travel all over the U.S. so I may already be in an area near you and if you are in a desirable area I will come your way :-) . I like to arrive a day ahead so that we can go over instructions and questions, smile. Let's do this! Reference upon request and please read endorsements.

Should we have a conversation about a sit, please have the courtesy to notify all applicants once a selection is made. I find this to be the most frustrating thing about this site, you think you are still being considered and a selection has been made and no one else told. I saw one person who reposted and changed looking for sitter to we have made a selection and it was totally great for all concerned. Thanks for listening :-)

No rating Toni is the best! I have made a friend for life! She was excellent with my dogs, cats, fish,horses and my Exotic Degus. This was my first house sitter and I was a little hesitant but Toni was very experienced and professional, she fit right in and took control, I was very thrilled to come home to my home and animals that were happy and cared for, they didn't even miss me!LOL That is great animal care! I was also impressed at how much research she did on the care of my Chilean Degus before ... MORE

Toni did an excellent job caring for my overly anxious dog and skittish cat. She spent most of the time at home with them, and even went to purchase and cooked some chicken when my dog would not eat. He slept with her every night, and followed her like her own shadow. She took great care of my home, pets, and plants. She communicated on a regular basis, and was quick to respond and appease me. Thank you Toni for caring for my 2 fur babies and my home as if they were your own.
SABRINA (Fort Pierce, FL Florida, May 2024 - 3 weeks)
Toni did an awesome job taking care of our home and all of our animals while we were away for 12 days. We have 19 chickens, 3 goats and two barn cats and she handled all of their daily care with ease and was very communicative with us throughout the trip. Shortly after meeting Toni she felt like an old friend- easy to talk to, trustworthy and taking care of the house and animals as if they were her own. My toddler also loved her and is an excellent judge of character :) It was a pleasure ... MORE

Toni was very communicative as to her location and arrival. Since this was the first time using her it was much appreciated! Very conscientious! Our doggie was well taken care of and seemed to enjoy her company. Would recommend her for future sittings!
DIANNE ( New Mexico, Apr 2023 - 1 week 6 days)
Toni was a fabulous house sitter! She sent photos of Tilly, our cat, and reported to me often to let me know she was doing well. Even though I never saw Toni in person, I felt like I got to know her through our many texts. When we returned home, our house was super clean and everything looked great. I would definitely ask Toni to care for our house again!
LAURIE ( Colorado, Apr 2023 - 2 weeks 1 day)
Toni was a blessing to care for my elderly dog and 2 finicky cats. They were well cared for and you can tell she loves animals. She communicated nearly daily with me and gave me updates on incoming mail. If she didn't know, she asked. She is trustworthy and kind. Would ask her again in a heartbeat!
KATHY (Crown Point Indiana, Jan 2022 - 2 months 1 week)
Toni was an excellent sitter. She is very knowledgeable of houses and gave us plenty of great advice. She took great care of our dog beyond what was required (e.g., she brushed her without us asking, medicated a hot spot etc), even though she wasn't able to walk our dog due to health reasons. Toni would be a great sit for any house, and she is very kind and knowledgable.
JACOB ( Massachusetts, Aug 2021 - 3 weeks)
No rating Toni was a wonderful house and dog sitter. She took super care of our girls while we were overseas, and kept in regular communication with us sending pics and updates. She left the house clean and tidy. We would highly recommend her!
PJ (White Pine Michigan, May 2019)
No rating Toni was fabulous with my (sometimes challenging) terrier. Toni took her to the dog park several times, which I had said she didn't have to do. Toni cleaned my house before I came home, which I appreciated, as I had traveled for 33 hours and was exhausted. She even watered some plants that I had just planted. They are thriving. I would love to have her sit again next year when I'm on vacation.
VICKY ( New Mexico, Apr 2018 - 4 weeks)
No rating Toni has done two house/cat sits for us. She's reliable and tentative. She sent me updates on how our cat was doing and when we came home, the house was tidy. I would definitely use her again for a future house sit!
