The Clean & Caring Sitter

55, Sr. Payroll Tax Analyst Lead

Clean, trustworthy, quiet and respectful. I keep my own home always clean & tidy and will do the same for others. I enjoy gardening and being outdoors. I had an Orange Tabby Donovan for 15 years.

I work for a global engineering company based in Dallas but I work out of the Pasadena, California office. Drug free. Background checked done by my employer because of my position. I have my own place to go home to. I am flexible with my time if you need to return earlier or later. I have been fully vaccinated since March 2021.

I used to own 2 homes in Los Angeles, where I lived for 30 years. Since March 2020, my employer allowed me to work remotely. So I moved to Las Cruces, NM last September 2020 to be closer to my sister. I am a world traveler, hiker and a runner. I have been to 59 countries.

On occasion, when I house sit for over 2 weeks, Andy might come for a visit on a weekend. But if you prefer there is no visitor allowed then it's also not a problem.

I found this house sitters site on May 4, 2021. This is giving me an opportunity to travel at least within the US until I can travel abroad again in exchange for caring for others cats, plants & home.

My first official house sitting job started on May 10 thru 17, 2021 in Los Angeles. Now, I am currently on my 5th. My 6th is already booked for 1 month.

Alma stayed in our house for one month while we were away on a backpacking trip. She is extremely organized, capable, and responsive, I knew she would be able to handle anything that came up. She was great with our cat and within a few days of her arrival had him sitting on her lap for pets and cuddles. Alma took great care of our house, yard and plants too. She is very clean, and went above and beyond any of my expectations and everything looked amazing when we returned. Most ... MORE

Could not have asked for a better sitter than Alma! Great communication from the first message to the end of the sit. During the sit she sent lots of photos and videos showing how much my cats were loving all the cuddles amd attention they were getting. And she left the condo cleaner than it was before.

Alma is a bright, confident, personable, responsible, and an adventurous person! She is the perfect pet sitter! We enjoyed meeting Alma and hearing her wonderful travel stories. She has inspired us to travel even more! Alma really hit it off with our cat, Kit Carson, who is also adventurous and full of personality. We returned to a spotless, organized home and, most importantly, a happy and healthy cat! We couldn't recommend Alma more. She is in a word awesome! We hope our paths cross again. ... MORE

We could not have wished for a better house sitter than Alma! We only wanted someone to stay at our house and keep our cat company and she went above and beyond. She sent us pictures of our cat, and we were so comforted seeing that he was happy and relaxed cuddling with her. Beyond that, we had just moved into our new place two weeks previous and she was understanding that we still had boxes that were unpacked and the house was not totally put together. She did lots of little things around ... MORE

Alma was a SUPER STAR! She responded last minute after another sitter flaked. Was super communicative and helpful. She left my house and Cat better then she found them (LOL). Would have her back anytime!
