60ish, Semi-retired school district

60ish, Semi-retired business owner

We are quiet, semi-retired , dependable, professional couple who have loved and cared for many domestic pets and farm animals nearly all of our lives. As problem, solvers, we tend to skip over “run in circles scream and shout” and go straight to solutions.

Thomas: An organized handyman and property manager. He grew up in the country with horses and dogs.

Kate: In addition to always having had pets of her own over the years, Kate has volunteered in shelters, foster and rescue work, and worked on a few farms. By doing so, she has encountered and is comfortable with a wide variety of of personalities and species of animals. She has also done property management, is a carpenter, as well as a gardener (both ornamentals and edibles.)

We are active travelers, hikers, and kayakers, who enjoyed being out in nature with animals.

Additionally , we are:
• non-smokers
• vaccinated
• financially stable
• and can provide excellent references upon request.

Thank you for reviewing our profile. We hope you will consider us and look forward to communicating with you about your needs and wishes.

Thomas and Kate were wonderful sitters! They were very conscientious and took wonderful care of both the house and the animals. When I returned, everything was so neat and tidy. Definitely recommend them and hope they will want to return!

Thomas and Katie were excellent housesitters. They communicated well, handled unexpected situations, and took good care of the pets, the lawn and garden, and the house. They also accommodated a flexible schedule, very much appreciated.

Thomas and Kate were just wonderful. The house was spotless. (They even fixed dinner for us when we returned jet-lagged.) They dealt with our very old and ailing golden as well as our more rambunctious pup. When our older dog got sick, they reached out to us immediately, but we were on a plane. Even without instruction, they did everything we would have hoped they would do. We highly recommend them.

We miss the golden and the pup already. Thank you so much for an amazing stay!
