Two housesitter wannabes
68, Semi retired
Hello, Bonjour, Hola, Guten Tag, Ciao.
We are Kathy and Bob. We are a friendly, easy going, hard-working couple who have spent our time together pursuing and appreciating the arts, culture and travel the area has to offer along with the abundant amount of restaurants and beaches.
We have done five housesits thru this site and have decided that we really enjoy this lifestyle...especially the variety it offers. We have taken care of four dogs and eight cats...plus one outside cat that we fed every day but never saw. We had three housesits scheduled for this year which were cancelled due to the pandemic. We miss it!
We are a fit and active couple who will care for your home and pets as if they were our own. We are responsible, organized, and non-smoking. We will leave your home the way you left it. We have always owned a home (between the two of us) and are experienced with the upkeep and maintenance a home requires.
We have had many dogs and cats in our lifetime from rescue dogs to purebreds.
Our main goal will be the care of your home and pets along with the opportunity to get to know your area of the world a little better.
Housesitting provides an opportunity to get to know the area as a "local", an opportunity to unpack and an opportunity to make our coffee/tea the way we like it in the morning.
We understand how hard it is to leave your home and have to put your pets in a kennel while you are gone. We hope to give you some peace of mind knowing that they are being well cared for.
Bob is a retired engineer who grew up in the Poconos of Pennsylvania. He has spent time in different areas of the country along with time spent in Europe. He can speak German along with English.
Kathy is currently semi retired having done office work most of her life in the Chicagoland area.
We will make sure your pets are fed, plants are watered, mail picked up, and any routine task completed. We will send you pictures of your pets as often as you would like while you are gone so you can enjoy your trip.
Wonderful couple. Took care of our fish pond and garden plants in the drought. I felt we were in great hands. Louie loved Kathy and Bob and he didn't even seem to care we were home! I would highly recommend them

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kathy and Bob. They went above and beyond with our recent housesit. The house was so well taken care of, it looked just as it did when we left or better. Bob was so diligent at keeping the yard up and plants alive. He even made sure that the grass was cut the day we got home so that nothing had to be done for a little while. I have 2 cats and 1 dog. Unfortunately, 2 days before we were to leave, our 1 cat decided to quit eating due to advancing stages ... MOREI cannot say enough wonderful things about Kathy and Bob.

Unfortunately, 2 days before we were to leave, our 1 cat decided to quit eating due to advancing stages of kidney failure. Kathy was able to get her to start eating again, with help from trips to the vet for fluids. Kathy also communicated with me daily, giving me updates on the situation with our kitty. They are amazing people and we couldn't of asked for anyone better to stay at our home and take care of things. They have set the bar very high for anyone housesitting for us in the future.

Kathy and Bob just spent a week at my home and I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. They endured the 100+ temps with a smile on their faces and took great care of my cat who needed meds twice a day. My home looked fantastic when I returned. There is not one suggestion I could give them for improvement and they are reliable and self-sufficient. Thank you Bob and Kathy for allowing me to truly enjoy my vacation without worry!

Kathy & Bob were wonderful house sitters. They watched our senior cat (who needs medication) & our home for 5 weeks this Spring. Kathy responded quickly to any texts I sent & kept me updated on how things were going. When we returned home our house was very clean. Everything in its place, houseplants healthy & most important our cat Dusty was relaxed & happy. We would be happy to have them sit anytime!
