52, Recruitment Director

Hello, I have loved animals all my life. I grew up on a small farm with cows and sheep. I've had pet rabbits; fish, mice and lambs.

I have rescued 4 cats, and I rescued a dog 12 years ago, who has since passed of old age.

I have studied natural cures and remedies for two decades, and been interviewed on TV 27 times for my knowledge on healing. I simply give my animals Vitamin C in winter to prevent and cure coughs and colds, and I 'cured' my dog of cancer two years ago, when Vet specialists gave him the weekend to live. Not only do I have an affinity with animals, they instinctively trust me, and I know how to keep them well, with safe and harmless remedies that make them healthy if needed. (I've just done a house sit and cured the dog of a limp and kennel cough... the cures were in the kitchen). I also cured an elderly rescue cat of advanced cancer in the ear.

I will follow your personal instructions, and ensure your precious family members are loved and well looked after. I am clean, tidy and a professional person. I am looking to house sit in the Western BOP, Tauranga, Mount Maunganui areas, though would consider the Waikato or Auckland. I have excellent references.

I work in the field of Recruitment Consulting - placing candidates in jobs, and I work from anywhere, doing interviews via SKYPE. So if your pet likes company all the time, it works well.

I have been on this site for some time, and I appreciate photos and a description of the home, regarding wifi, heating etc. I'm a mature; professional woman, who takes the greatest care of animals and homes. :)

P.S. I always take photos of your pets and keep you updated during the house sit... Owners really appreciate that.

If the home is in the BOP I usually meet the home owners 'once" and then I am given the keys and a note on the day I arrive with the wifi code and where the pet food is etc. Otherwise, I can organise by phone/SKYPE.

Kary was an excellent sitter, who looked after our animals and house for one week. She looked after our pets very well and took a real shine to our cat, who loves attention. Kary kept us up to date with how everything was going and sent us a pic. of all the animals.
