I had wonderful house-sitters from TH in the past and have done some pet-sitting on my own.
Times have changed! I took early social security, the cats are long-dead and I recently sold my house. I have a full summer planned including a pet-sitting gig for 7 weeks in Colorado. I am ready for lots of US road trips and hopefully, as much international travel as possible! Right now I have Panama and Morocco on the schedule.
Since I travel alone, I really prefer to stay with pets to keep me company. I also prefer warm climates and long-term house-sitting opportunities.
I look forward to getting to know all of you via this forum and maybe even in person!
