Mary, The Cat Whisperer of the highest order

0 comments

House sitter Mary, Username lovepetstravel2 , was my house sitter in Ettalong Beach NSW for 3 weeks in April-May 2017. Mary looked after my scaredy-cat Wendy, as well as my villa and garden.

Scardey Cat was hiding under the bed

I came home from my trip to a spotless house and a cat who actually greeted me at the door, despite spending most of her day under the bed before I left.

I consider her a cat whisperer of the highest order.

If you are looking for a caring, quiet and thoughtful person to mind your home, look no further than this lady. I would gladly invite her to sit for me when next I go travelling and have no hesitation in recommending her.

Mary resides in America but is happy to house sit in Australia and New Zealand also.

When you're in Tahoe and have a sitting gap to fill before your next Tahoe house sit.Then a housecarers.com listing  appears which fills that gap perfectly and is in Tahoe! Applied, interviewed and confirmed in less than 12 hours! .... Dave & Kathy LoveTheWorld

We are 2 Brits who love to travel, we have worked in Europe, Asia and the USA and took some time out in 2014 to recharge. We did this by moving to Tahoe and enjoying the outdoor life.

 We are a professionally minded couple, I am a self employed management
consultant and Kathy after many years as a successful bank
manager is now an equally successful home maker.


When it came to look at returning to corporate life, an alternate lifestyle choice came to mind. House sitting! We were introduced to the idea of sitting about 7 years ago when backpacking (in Fiji) and in fact  Joined housecarers.com  back then though work life took over again.

Now we are in a position to commit fully to a nomadic lifestyle, we rent out our home in England, we finished our house lease in Tahoe (April 2016) and with no permanent home we hit the road!

Our number one reason for house sitting is being able to travel cost effectively for extended periods. Being able to spend time living more like an expat or in some cases like a local brings a new perspective to countries we've previously visited.


Another great advantage to the nomadic house sitting lifestyle is budget control, by choosing the duration and location of sits we have control over our living costs. We can stay local to Tahoe for short term sits, we can stay in the USA and road trip or we can invest in flights for longer term foreign sits.

Hi Ian,

I am so delighted with this year's experience with Housecarers.
My sitter from 2015 retired from pet sitting, therefore I needed to look once more.
I had a much more difficult time choosing a sitter this time.

This is his I am not ready to leave yet pose.
Each of the final four (had over 15 responses within 24 hours) had amazing qualities.  I could not have been more pleased.  I will be removing the ad and unsubscribing, but will be back in the early summer for the fall/winter 2017 and for next year if I need to look again.

5 Minute walk to the Russian River. Brix likes to walk in it. Not much of a swimmer.
