Your fur family will be happy, healthy and loved!

65, retired

Hello there! I'm a lifelong animal lover and have many years experience as a pet sitter. As a recently retired Spanish teacher, I look forward to seeing different areas of the U.S. while also enjoying the company of wonderful pets.

Please know that I am extremely trustworthy and conscientious. As a former pet owner, I understand how important it is to feel good about the person with whom you leave your pet. You can rest assured that I will make the safety and comfort of your pet(s) my utmost priority; under my care your pet(s) will be happy, healthy and loved!

As a homeowner myself, you can have every confidence that I will treat your home as well as I treat my own. I am fastidious when it comes to cleaning and clutter! I also know how to take care of basic household tasks. I have my own veggie and flower gardens and do most of the yard work myself. I like to have fun in life, but I am very serious when it comes to the care of your animals and property, so I appreciate clear communication and will follow your directives and requests fully. As a former teacher, I follow instructions! I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible so that you can enjoy your travels worry-free!

Personally, I am located on Long Island, NY. I am vaccinated and boosted. I live a quiet, calm life and you can expect the same when I am in your home. I love to read, listen to music, take walks, enjoy nature, visit new places and meet new people - and cuddle with furry friends!
I look forward to helping you!

Laura was a wonderful house sitter! Our house and garden were well cared for, and most of all, our pets. She sent photos and videos showing some very happy animals. Even our very shy cat who doesn't like any strangers warmed up to Laura. Our rescue dog and two cats loved her gentle nature and all the attention lavished on them. She explored the area with our dog, taking him for walks at local nature preserves and sending photos. It was such a relief to be traveling far from ... MORE

It was a pleasure to meet you, Nyle, and your family! A special thank you to your husband for the delicious meal the night before and the fresh bread and focaccia the morning of your departure. Of course, the center of my positive experience at your home were your wonderful pets. They were sweet ... MORE
Laura sat for my family for 2 weeks, and took care of our dogs, cats, chickens and multiple gardens. She was super communicative and even came a day before we left so she could meet all the animals while we were still home. While we were away she made sure we were updated with how everyone was feeling, and when we came back home we found all our pets happy and content and the gardens in great shape despite the heat during our trip. The house was as clean as we left it. I would recommend ... MORE

Thank you for your kind words, Shir. I was happy to help out and very much enjoyed meeting your family - furred, feathered and not!
Laura was friendly, responsible, and very caring with my 3 cats while I was on vacation. She managed my cat's medication without trouble and cared for my pine pellet litter boxes without difficulty. For those unfamiliar with this litter it is easy in one sense, but the maintenance to keep clean can seem complicated if you are not familiar with it. She handled it just fine. Laura spent qualitiy time playing & snuggling with my cats, and she left the kitchen, bowls, recycables, etc. ... MORE
