Don stays home most of the time but I list him in case he decides to come for all or part of the sit. This will obviously be clarified with homeowners in advance.

Please note, if you are considering inviting us: We prefer sits we can get to and stay comfortably without a car (will consider with bicycles or a car you loan). Near an Amtrak station is a plus. We can also consider plane or bus, depending on budget and your location.

We know what a relief it is to travel knowing your home and pets are well cared for. Please feel secure knowing Don and I will prioritize the care of your home and your beloved animals.

I retired from teaching in July of 2022. I enjoy traveling, people, and pets, and have experience with dogs, cats, hens, some reptiles, and small animals like hamsters, gerbils, rabbits, and cavies/guinea pigs. I have pet-sitting experience, i.d. and background check, and multiple references and reviews through another platform. I can make these (or at least screenshots) available upon request.

Mary Lou is a superb and experienced house sitter and even taught me how to be a better house sit host! Very communicative from the start, she had a detailed list of questions and provided a list of everything that she would need to be prepared to properly care for my house and pets while I was gone. She was very interested in my cats' needs and personalities and as a result got along well with them. I appreciated her flexibility in coming a day early while I was still home to get acquainted ...
