House- and Pet-sitting have been a part of my life for about 44 years. The homes and other properties I have been entrusted with varied from a bedsit the size of a monk's cell to something that may have been Hogwarts. (I'm not sure; things kept shifting around.)
I will be over from the U.S. so I will not have a vehicle. I am, however, practiced in right-hand driving, so you car is safe with me. I usually walk miles per day. I can cover longer distances by public transport. Dogs that will ride bus, train, tube, or taxi with me are especially fun.
I was brought to Florida as a hostage by my parents when I was a month old. I've been trying to get out ever since. In fact, I'll escape this country someday....
Why do I want to pet-sit? I love animals. Everyone says that, of course, but I love animals too much to stay with one. Or two. Or...how many? I spend time with them, reassuring them their family is coming back. And then when they do, it is time for me to move on to the next home where I am needed.
If you can name a type of dog or cat, I've probably had experience with it, from a nine-month-old Bernese Mountain Dog who weighed 44k to a Havana Brown "Sphinx on Acid" who just happened to be the cat ruler of the world..
I can take on just about any animals (Remember: big dogs and snarky cats.) But I MUST exclude:
Chimps. Pit bull types, English bull terriers, bully dogs, anything on the Dangerous Dogs Act. If you have one of these animals, there is no need to send me a nasty message. Please, just move on.
My mother was a dog breeder of many different kinds and my baby sister is a breeder of champion Cavs and French Bulldogs.
And we had many, many pets. Plus, we had weird pets that no other kids seemed to have.
(In some special cases, let's negotiate a nominal fee.)
