Krista is an outstanding pet/house-sitter. All four cats bonded with her and loved sleeping with her. Krista took excellent care of them, as if they were her

This was Krista's second time sitting for Rusty and I was delighted to welcome her back. She was again great company that first evening then looked after

About

I love nature, spending time writing or reading in a quiet home with a furry companion close by, gardening, and even (yes, this is really true) cleaning... ha! I am kind of a neat-nik, and will probably leave any home I stay in even tidier

Why I want to house sit

I joined trustedhousesitters recently, thinking it would be a great way to try out new places I might like to relocate and possibly buy land and/or build a home in the future. I love animals deeply, but lost my beloved cat in January 2018

My experience

I have always had cats as my own pets, as well as freshwater fish tanks in the past, and have also become kind of a "go to" house-sitter over the years for many friends, co-workers, employers, etc., probably because of my relative freedom
