We're flexible and open to discuss your needs and promise to take good care of your home and furry friends while you are away. We were homeowners for 40+ years, absentee landlords for several rental properties, including international locations in Brazil and Mexico..  We parented an indoor cat for more than 15 years and did house and/or pet sitting for friends.  We understand the importance of having reliable and safe house sitters; it was sometimes a challenge for us to locate someone for our own pet/homes in the past.   We enjoy getting to know the locals... read more
