Hello! We are Michael Kowal and Cathie Mckim, interested in house/pet sitting for extended periods of time throughout the United States and Canada. We have years of experience taking good care of our own homes, as well as domestic animals, from cats and dogs to horses and chickens.We have been house/pet sitting part time for many years, and have been doing it full time for 2. We are a healthy, happy, outgoing couple who not only enjoy animals, (ESPECIALLY DOGS AND CATS!), and caring for plants, but love hiking, biking, theater, reading, music, and all aspects of culture. We pride ourselves on taking care of owners' homes like our OWN, with GREAT attention to detail, diligence, and cleanliness. We've been 'on the road' of house and pet sitting for four years now, and LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
Cathie has extensive experience in the food industry, owning and operating four very successful restaurants over a period of 25 years, including food and beverage management for a five star/five diamond resort. She is a life long cat and dog lover and owner and has managed a small farm with goats, chickens, guineas, rabbits, dogs and cats as well as a small home based food coop.
Michael is a massage therapist, ecologist, wildlife biologist, published author, poet, musician, composer, and has worked extensively as a hiking guide throughout the United States. He is a dog/cat/horse lover/owner and has great experience working on small farms since boyhood. We would be EXTREMELY interested in talking with you about giving you the VERY BEST house/pet sitting experience you've EVER had! AND, we come with EXCELLENT REFERENCES!
We love meeting new people, (often making GREAT friends with former home owners we have sat for!), traveling, and taking great care of other's homes, pets, and plants like our own. Our years of personal experience with people from all over the world in many walks of life, professional to private, have given us a background rich in intuitive caring, and dedicated service to others. We love what we do, we love meeting people, and we love caring for animals.
