Krista was a wonderful pet sitter for my two cats, including one that was severely sick. I was worried at first to leave home, but immediately got relieved

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
