Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
Retired pet vet
I am a Canadian who loves New Zealand and will be returning for summer 2020. I am available for house sits between January 29 and February 29. I have a particular soft spot for cats. My first profession was veterinary with a specialization in small animal medicine. My license to practice lapsed many years ago but I can make general assessments and give medications. My second vocation is ordained ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada from which I retired three years ago. I will provide the best of care for your pet(s) and treat your property with respect. If your garden needs some light loving I would enjoy doing that too. If you are registered with Airbnb you may see my reviews there. While I am house/pet sitting I would hope to be able to explore your area of NZ and go for day walks.
