I house-sit and sit pets. I have cared for dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and goats. I stick to the animals' daily routine and keep the house clean, like I was never there.
I am reliable and honest. I charge reasonably. I have a part-time job, so I have time to spoil the animals, and I provide my own food. I also do not have people over or throw any kinds of parties. It's your place; it's your house rules.
I have 10 families so far whom I sit for. My shortest sitting time has been 2 days, and my longest sitting time has been 2 weeks.
