Hi! I am a retired Interior Designer and business owner, watercolor artist and animal lover. Since August 2017 I have been pet sitting full time, traveling all over the Pacific Northwest from Friday Harbor to Oregon City, Oregon and Lake Chelan. I have enjoyed meeting new pets and their owners and seeing new places. I am now traveling less and will be enjoying life now based in my new home base of Port Townsend, Washington. My preferred area for pet and house sitting is Port Townsend and the West Puget Sound area (Kitsap, Jefferson and surrounding areas). I will consider most areas in Northwest Washington for pet sits of a week or longer so please contact me for more information.
NOTE: Now accepting pet sitting assignments for Tucson and Green Valley, Arizona for December 2019 through March/April 2020. Possible discounts or trade for living situation.
As an experienced pet sitter, I provide loving care and attention for your pets in their own home where they feel safe and secure. I offer both overnight stay and home visits, especially for cats. Your animals can expect lots of play time, long walks, and lots of love. See my "Services" page for more information on my services.
Your home is very special to you and I will always respect and care for it as if it were my own. I have lived alone for most of my adult life and I am not intimidated by minor (or even major) household emergencies.
One of my favorite friends is Merlin on Bainbridge Island who is an 11 pound dachshund. I got a text from his Mom recently after I left there one morning before Merlin was awake.
"Merlin ran out of the bedroom looking for you in the dining room. When he didn't find you he ran upstairs. Then he planted himself on the dining room carpet facing the door and stared at the door. I think he misses you!"
