Your pets are your ‘babies’ and in most cases your main concern when looking for a house sitter. Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Snakes and Lizards, including Farm Animals, are some of the ‘pets’ I have looked after over the years.
I have minded pets, houses, homes and farms in South Africa and the UK. Whilst in South Africa, I cover the Western Cape, but have minded properties as far afield as Willowmore and Aberdeen in the Eastern Cape.
In addition to walking your ‘pets’, twice a day (but your requirements dictate), I also administer medication, and a healthy dose of love and care! I clean, vacuum, wash and garden, and am happy to perform maintenance and odd-jobs where instructed.
I take pride in my work and ownership of other people’s properties and pets; Having owned a 5-Star Guest House, and being a Locum Manager at various B&Bs and Guest Houses, I have learned the necessity of respecting and maintaining owners’ properties.
I am a complete animal lover: Dogs, Cats, Birds, in fact all animals.
When I co-owned the Guest House in Swellendam I had two Irish Wolfhounds and two Bulldogs, along with a menagerie of Cats, Chickens, Guinea Fowl, resident Barn and Cape Eagle Owls, and an injured Blue Crane who was called ‘Grace’. Guest absolutely loved her.
In the evening I used to show the guests the Owls and owlets. Great excitement for all!
I was a Field Guide for Wilderness Leadership School taking students and adults on trails into Wilderness areas and teaching them about game, nature, survival and ecology.
Now I House Sit, and spend time looking after people’s houses, whilst at the same time writing books on South African towns, their history as well as Family Histories.
