Providing affection, nurturing, and attention

66, Retired Disney Cast Member

I want to assure you that my commitment to delivering the utmost care and love to your pets and home remains unwavering, irrespective of any payment. My dedication stems from a genuine love for what I do and a sincere desire to provide the best care possible. It is intrinsic to my nature to ensure the well-being of your pets and maintain the security of your home.

Hello there!

I hope this message finds you well. I'm delighted to introduce myself as a passionate caregiver with a genuine love for animals. Having retired from my role as a Disney Cast Member and embraced a full-time traveler lifestyle, I've had the incredible privilege of connecting with animals worldwide, bringing immense joy to my heart.

My journey with animals took on a special meaning, particularly after the loss of my beloved cat Mully in July 2020. Mully not only enriched my life as a loyal companion but also played a role in fostering a community of furry friends in the neighborhood. Even after his passing, his companions continued to visit, providing comfort in their own unique way.

Beyond caring for feline friends, I also had the pleasure of looking after a neighbor's 22-year-old turtle for six years and being adopted by a mother raccoon and her seven adorable offspring. These experiences, along with successfully training squirrels, showcase my genuine affection for creatures of all sizes.

The deep connection I share with animals is the driving force behind my passion for their well-being. They naturally gravitate toward me, creating a profound bond that I hold dear. In addition to my affinity for animals, friends often jest about the pristine condition of my home, questioning if anyone even resides in it. As a non-smoker and non-drinker with a preference for quiet solitude, you can trust that your home and cherished pets will be in capable and caring hands.

I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to be considered as the caretaker for your beloved animals and home. The prospect of becoming a part of your pets' lives and ensuring their well-being brings me great joy. If you have any questions or require further details, please don't hesitate to reach out. I am committed to making this experience seamless and enjoyable for both you and your beloved animal companions.

Thank you for your consideration

James was our first sitter, and I can only hope that others are anywhere near as good as he was. We are very much hoping to have him back the next time we travel, as his attention to both our dog and home's needs was exceptional. He has an easy-going and comfortable personality, is very thoughtful and aware of his surroundings, communicates well, and as a bonus, he enjoys cleaning! Our dog Chui was especially comfortable with James, and despite his quirks and preference for females, James ... MORE

I am truly grateful for the warmth and kindness that you, Chris, and Chui have extended to me. Your collective efforts have created an atmosphere that goes beyond mere friendship; it genuinely feels like being embraced by a loving and caring family. Your actions have left an indelible mark on my ... MORE
I was gone for an extended period of time and left my 110+ year old home and four cats (ranging in age from 2-16) in James' care. I could tell upon my return that the kitties were well cared for in my absence as they were calm, content, and in good physical condition. It was also very nice to come home to a clean house! James is a total animal person who takes pride in his role as caretaker and it shows. Thanks James.

I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and for your trust in allowing me to care for your home and beloved pets. Your confidence means a lot to me, and I truly appreciate it.
James was fantastic and we highly recommend using him. He showed up early in order to become familiar with the house and pets. James loves animals and became quite attached to our cats, dog, and hermit crab. He is definitely an animal lover. He kept the house immaculate and went above and beyond what we expected. He kept in touch with us to solve any issues and resolved everything perfectly. James is very gregarious and witty. Our friends that met him were very impressed. We were ... MORE

Thank you so much for your kind words! It was an absolute pleasure taking care of your house and pets. I’m thrilled to hear that you were happy with my services. I also wanted to mention how overwhelmed I was by the kindness of Steve and Curt. They were so welcoming and accommodating throughout the ... MORE
By far, the best house sitter I have ever seen. James has an empathy for animals that is unlike anyone else. Excellent communication before and during the sit. James kept the house cleaner than I do and watered all the plants. He loved Twix as much as I do and walked him several times a day. James will take care of your pets and home better than you do yourself! Highest recommendation.

Thank you for such kind words. I've never felt so comfortable and relaxed on a sit before
James was so incredibly thoughtful during his long stay with my dog. He left the home spotless and plants thriving. His care for Marley went above and beyond and it was obvious when I returned my dog hadn’t longed for attention. He communicated with me throughout the stay even helping with home contractors. We can’t wait for James to return.
EMILY ( North Carolina, Mar 2023 - 14 days)
I can't tell you how much spending time with Marley meant to me. Thank you
If you are looking for the very best in care for your beloved pets, home and plants, look no further. James was the best and most loving person with our dogs and chickens that I've ever experienced. He was an awesome communicator throughout our travels overseas. We always get apprehensive about someone we don't know, caretaking especially our beloved fur baby dogs, but we met via Zoom a few times leading up to our trip and James quickly put our fears to rest. Our vacation was better, knowing ... MORE
