Description

Hello my name is Ed. I love to travel and prefer to stay in one place for 30 days to get to know it a little bit. I'm retired from Mechanical Engineering, Computers and Technology, and my own online store for Organic and eco-friendly bedding and clothing. For half of my career I worked for myself. I say all this to show professionalism and decision making in my work and personal lives. I have owned three houses over 41 years and know how to care for them. And will care for yours with respect and tidiness as I always have for my own. I am a very active 73 year old who plays a lot of pickleball (a sport that started in the United States in 1965 and is now growing rapidly worldwide). I like to play 3 to 4 times a week for 2.5 to 4 hours at a time. I only say this to give you an idea of my activity level. I keep myself in good shape. Also, I don’t smoke and never have smoked. I am looking for paid lodging as well as home sitting and pet sitting opportunities. I can take care of pet care, plant watering, laundry, mail collection, and trash removal. I have had a total of three cats and three dogs at various times over the years. What can I bring to your home sitting and pet sitting? All of the above - knowledge of how to care for your pets and show them attention and affection, knowledge of home ownership, and keeping a home organized and tidy. Also, please see my "character references" on my AirBNB profile: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/8138554 By the way, if you need, or have, a website in Squarespace I can create or update one for you. We can do an exchange of my service for lodging. My website: webbytraffic.com Here are some references: “Ed loves cats (and dogs, too). He has pet sit for me many times over the years. First with Oscar, a 17 year-old sweetheart-of-a-cat that, sadly, passed away in 2020. Ed was attentive and extra affectionate with him (my cat's shy, but he loves Ed). After Oscar passed, I adopted two kittens that took to Ed instantly. Ed kept up with their crazy kitten ways and delighted in their antics. In fact, he has cat sit for me many times as Stan and Ollie have grown over their first three years. They like to snuggle with him. Ed also watered my plants (both inside and out), collected my mail, and kept the house in order while I travelled. He's tidy, kind, conscientious, thoughtful, and a wonderful house sitter. I can't recommend him highly enough!”?Vicki W, guardian of cats Oscar, Stan, and Ollie “Ed is a very reliable and detail-oriented person, capable of finding a solution to any problem that arises, and an animal lover. Ed took care of our house and pets while we traveled extensively for work over the course of two years. He communicated clearly and effectively whenever there was any problem or concern and kept the house in a clean and safe condition and our pets happy, healthy, and properly fed. I recommend Ed wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a responsible, dependable, friendly and caring companion for their furry friends.” Alison M, guardian of dog Avocado The following is a review I received on another pet sitting site. I can provide the link if you'd like: Pet Guardian: Ali (Gave me 5 out of 5 star rating) Ed was great with the hounds and the slightly complicated cat regime. He managed naughty Basil running off (twice) to the green, and left the house in excellent condition. (5 out of 5 star rating) Organised (5 out of 5 star rating) Reliable (5 out of 5 star rating) Self-sufficient (5 out of 5 star rating) Clean and tidy (5 out of 5 star rating) Pet care Bosham, United Kingdom · 06 May - 14 May 2024 Let's Connect: Send me a message and I’ll reply within 24 hours.
