Your Critter Carer
48, Resume Writer
** 12+ years house/pet sitting experience with multiple (enthusiastic!) references
**Friendly, down to earth, & conscientious, I've been told I put people (and animals) at ease
**My animal friends know/love/remember me, and vice/versa (I have many repeat pet/housesitting jobs over the many years I've been doing this)
** I love dogs AND cats, and have a good amount of experience with both
**I have owned a home as a single woman & care for yours not as mine, but as YOURS -- as you request and with the extra special care and concern I believe one should give when responsible for other people's property
**15+ years of passed background checks for my former teaching and social work jobs
** Responsible, professional, service oriented - I run an online resume writing business (google me at Resume Confidence), and treat pet / house sitting the same as those clients. I'm not just an animal lover that likes to travel (though I am those things, too). My background in education/training and customer service supervisory roles
** Non-smoker, no drugs. No drinking is also fine if you prefer, no problem
** Clean, neat, detail oriented - all will be in order as you left it, or better, when you return
** Plant/yard/pool care (etc.) also fine, just ask
** I have a questionnaire/ checklist I use to gather vital info and instructions, which many clients have commented impressed them and was very useful
As mentioned, I have online businesses. This means a couple things:
1) I'm home a lot (usually seen as a good thing/bonus) though I'm sure I'll want to get out & explore your area some, too, and,
2) I do need reliable, faster than not internet access (unlimited data strongly preferred). I've learned some areas still may have data limit packages, and, that my work uses a good amount of data. Wi-fi preferred over ethernet (corded) connection though that's not a deal breaker
3) If you also have some sort of decent table and chair, I'm good to go
I would be ***honored*** to care for your castle & critters in the same manner you would.
I am happily waiting to hear from you...
It helps if your message includes some details, if not already in your ad, such as:
-- Please tell me about your pets personalities and needs
-- Their habits, schedules (are their feeding times are set? or flexible? where do they sleep? (and if that is set or flexible), etc.
-- Any useful details about their quirks (we all have 'em!), your home & any unique requests of your sitter (generally I can accommodate those, let's discuss)
-- Anything else you'd like to share to help us all get to know each other!
Many thanks -
PS I am fairly new to this site, and thus so far just 2 reviews, I have many more references I can share with you on request, though the 2 here make me humbled and so grateful for the wonderful owners I meet while sitting!
