Responsible, Trustworthy and Kind

51, Arts Administrator

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile. I have been house-sitting friends' homes for decades. I love to travel, embrace a change of scene, content in my own company, and understand the importance of being respectful, clean and quiet in someone else's space.

I'm a friendly Canadian who owns a home with a partner in Ottawa, Ontario. We live with an adopted large dog (George) and a snuggly cat (Tommy), both pictured. I have years of experience caring for them and understand how important pets are to their owners; they become part of our families and should be treated as such.

I am fully vaccinated and have visited NYC for extended periods of time staying mostly in Hell's Kitchen, Harlem, Washington Heights, Gramercy Park and Brooklyn. My home is a mere 2-hour flight/8-hour drive away and I would seriously entertain short or long contracts should you feel I would be suitable. My work is 9 to 5 and remote, so the location is flexible provided there is good WiFi available.

I am professional, tactful, intuitive and responsible. I have some external references to share if you are interested. I look forward to connecting to learn more about what is important to you in these kinds of arrangements and how I can be of service.

What a treat to have Nicole come to stay with my very snuggly (i.e. needy?) kitty, Felix. it turns out by serendipity we have friends in common and common interests, so as well as being an amazing house and cat sitter, I feel like i have made a new friend. She's a gem!!

Thank you so much for this lovely review, Amy. I agree that the connection was serendipitous!
Nicole was an amazing house and pet sitter! She was so sweet and super communicative the entire time. She sent me pictures of my kitty-girl Eve during the week, and took great care of my apartment and plants. When I came home I found a huge bouquet of flowers welcoming me back :) So thoughtful - my cat Eve and I very much look forward to her staying here again!
