Happy Housesitters International

Tony and Linda definitely earned their 5 stars taking care of our home and cats for over a month during the time when Hurricane Ian hit, and really deserve a 10! They encouraged me to head to Mexico before the airport closed and shouldered the hurricane prep and clean up without me, including several days without power until our friend brought a generator. We have a 3/4-acre property with many trees and they did a tremendous job collecting and hauling bins of yard waste to the curb over several weeks. They also cleared items like our tandem kayak and yard art prior to Ian so they weren’t projectiles. They were very thoughtful and prepared and were ready to take our cats to a shelter if necessary. We knew our home and cats were in experienced hands.

In addition to being hurricane pros, Tony and Linda were super sitters in many other ways, which was particularly appreciated on a long trip away from cats and home. They sent several pictures of both cats daily, most of which were our cats comfortably lounging on their laps! They were here during a roofing project and kept us abreast of progress throughout. Tony also took on a number of household projects like fixing the wiring on our vacuum cleaner, setting clocks and timers, enhancing our audio visual set up and an assortment of other projects we have yet to discover! Linda made a delicious welcome home meal, and we found our home just as we left it and then some! And the best part was that it was very clear that our cats were healthy and cherished when we returned.

We highly recommend Tony and Linda and hope they’re back in this area for future sits.

I feel very fortunate that Linda and Tony are taking care of my cats, home and property for 2 back-to-back sits covering close to 50 days. They just completed the 1st week and ended up staying through the weekend to begin the 5 week sit because of COVID and Hurricane Ian issues, and that has been a blessing. They are seasoned sitters; seasoned Hurricane survivors and I feel completely at ease knowing my cats and home are in their capable hands.

They are a delightful, resourceful, organized couple who have already been helpful far beyond sitting, by providing me with all sorts of information on where I am in Mexico, from restaurants to drivers, as well as brainstorming about hurricane preparedness.

I rest easy knowing they’re in my home with my babies at this difficult time. If THS allowed a score of 10, I would gladly give it!
