81, Retired RN
83, Retired Reg. Machine Sales Mgr.
Retired, active. senior couple with family in Encinitas, CA, Boise, Idaho, and Reading, PA. We traveled the US intermittently for 17 years in a small motor home and miss the opportunity to get out and about since selling our Chinook. We see House Sitters as a great way to continue our adventures.
Since I was a small child, there have always been dogs in our family. As our children grew, we had Krimpet, the beloved family dog, Thumper, the rabbit, hamsters, a parakeet, and Hairy Harry, the long-haired guinea. Our daughter allowed us to care for her cat while she was overseas. We did a house sit for a family friend in CA a few years back who had an Australian Shepherd and enjoyed the experience. 5 years ago while our daughter's family went to Wales for Christmas, we house sat for their 2 cats, 2 turtles, 2 Betas, and a goldfish. All survived the experience safe and sound.
We joined House Sitters in 2016 and usually have sat for 1-2 month periods. On our first assignment we cared for 3 cats and a Golden Doodle, then Axel, the cat in Longmont. Two assignments were houses only.
Joe and I have been married for 59 years. For the past 34 years, we have lived on Lake Cypress Springs in East Texas. It gets a bit hot in Texas come summertime, which mainly is when we want to escape from our beautiful lake setting.
In order to renew my TX Nursing license 8 years ago, Texas required fingerprinting with a background check by the FBI. We are both retired non-smoking, professionals, who will care for your pets and property as our own. We will be happy to provide homeowners with contact references to verify our honesty and integrity.
