More InformationNon-smoker; happily single.
Internet essential. Pets Bonus!
Canadian born; naturalized Australian.
Great sense of humour, though my info here is a bit dry. :)
Animal lover from birth I sit with small animals; cats, small dogs, rabbits, ferrets etc.; age and special health care are not a concern. Old, frail, rescue, shy, needy ... They are all lovely companions.
I honour my commitments allowing you to wander knowing your home is secure and your pets are being loved and cared for in your temporary absence.
I have no personal obligations that might call me away on short notice.
I was raised with a succession of much loved pets.
I have volunteered at shelters, spent time in a Vet surgery helping out and helped friends on farms with sheep and cattle; years ago now.
I owned my own home for more than 20 years. I renovated from hands on building decks, gardens, garden walls, hanging drywall, replacing fittings and fixtures ... to dealing with tradesmen to get the most cost effective work done.
I lived on a small sailing yacht for 5 years, and worked and volunteered on commercial dive and research vessels throughout that time. I have done courses (TAFE) on boat knowledge, construction, safety, etc.
Past sits: Australia, New Zealand, Canada, UK, USA, Belgium and Spain.
I am an easy going person and get along well with others, but I like privacy and boundaries and offer the same to those I sit for.
