Booking now for Feb/March/April/May......

I am available for short and long-term housesitting and/or pet care. I prefer longer housesits as I am often traveling long distances to get to you.

I have many years (15+) of experience and excellent references from all over Oregon, California and WA, for house and petsitting as well as caretaking. I lived in Ashland for 19 years but have recently been traveling for housesits.
I have noteworthy references in that I am mature, responsible, reliable, respectful and trustworthy. I have much experience as a house manager as well as a variety of animal care. I am a life-long lover of all four leggeds and will love and nurture them with respect. I have studied animal communication, animal massage and energy work. The animals I care for love the relaxing and healing energy that I am privileged to give to them when I am with them. The main reason I do this work is for the animals...I have a deep passion and dedication to them for their well-being.

I will take loving care of your home, pets, and plants as if they were my own as well as handle the details of mail/trash/outside gardening and provide security for your home while you are gone, so that you can rest assured that everything is being taken care of. My profile can also be found on complete with background check. Available January 27th, 2020......

Looking forward to hearing from you!

....recommendations from previous clients....(even though the recommendations below are for dogs, I have lovingly taken care of many cats/kitties and can provide refs)

"My husband & I would like to strongly recommend A. as a pet and house sitter. We had her take care of our animals in our home for two weeks in January 2019 and will have her again for a month in March. She was very easy to communicate with and asked good questions, when I was going through the animals routine. When we came back, we found our dog and cat very well taken care of. Our cat is on a thyroid pill and she was able to give that to her daily. We could tell she loved animals by the way she talked to them. She also gave them cute names...
We came home to a very clean home, with her sheets and towels washed and her bed made. We are looking forward to her taking care of our animals and house again."

"It is our pleasure to have this opportunity to tell anyone that may be looking for a dog sitter or house sitter of our wonderful experience with A. After her initial call to us she drove an hour out to meet us and to meet our dogs. First you must know that we have 9 dogs of various breeds and ages, all big dogs over 50lbs except for 2 sm/med sized guys. She was not overwhelmed or intimidated, just curious about each one. She asked lots of questions and stayed for their 5:00 pm feeding so she would know exactly how they were fed. A. is a very organized and detailed person.
We felt that she would do everything we asked, two feedings a day and at least one walk every morning. She did it all and we came home to 9 happy and well loved dogs. A. still emails us asking about them and says she loved the experience and kept us updated while we were in Europe. She’s a beautiful person and truly has a big heart for animals. Everything was spotless when we returned. If you give her an opportunity you may just find yourself looking for somewhere to go so you can have A. care for your pets/home knowing you’re in good hands. It’s not easy to leave our pets but so nice when you find the right person."
