59, Writer

I am an experienced overnight house and pet sitter for hire. I do travel, although not north during the winter months. I am a writer so isolation and solitude are preferable although not necessary. I will consider both long and short term gigs.

Having been house sitting for decades, I have many repeat clients. References provided upon request.

Thank you for your consideration; I look forward to speaking with you.

Ruth exceeded all expectations! She was wonderful with the animals, the house was spotless, she kept in touch with us throughout the sit... the dogs wanted to know if we could keep her! She was very personable and professional, and I hope to use her again in the future!
